Hilary Duff And Mike Comrie End Marriage

Former Disney star Hilary Duff and her husband Mike Comrie have ended their marriage after three years.

A statement from 26-year-old Duff's representative said the couple have "mutually decided to an amicable separation.

"They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other's lives."

It adds they are committed to co-parenting their son Luca, who turns two in March.                 

Duff first became famous as a Disney star on the series Lizzie McGuire. She went on to star in films, record music and write books.

Comrie, 33, retired from the National Hockey League in 2012 due to a hip injury.

"There was no major incident - no big event between the two of them. They really did drift apart," a source told People, adding that the pair tried couples therapy before officially splitting up.

Duff later wrote on Twitter: "Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative for all of your kindness & well wishes.

"Not an easy day but we're getting thru it together."
