Actress Hilary Duff in child custody battle with NHL’s Mike Comrie
After a long bout of separation and speculation on whether or not Hilary Duff and ex-hockey star Mike Comrie would ever get back together, the couple finally decided on divorce as the best option.
Comrie and Duff both acknowledge the existence of a prenuptial agreement that will make sorting out property and financial issues much easier, but deciding on a custody agreement for their 3-year-old son, Luca, might be more of a challenge, TMZ reported on April 22.
When Duff filed for divorce back in February, she petitioned for primary physical custody of their son, requesting that Comrie’s access be limited to visitation rights. According to sources connected with the actress, she is concerned about Comrie’s partying lifestyle interfering with his abilities as a parent. However, Comrie isn’t going to give in without a fight and responded to Duff’s divorce petition by demanding joint custody.
