Hilary Duff, 26, and husband Mike Comrie, 33, are splitting up. They were married for 3 years and have 1 child together. And yet, despite their impending divorce, the couple are still total BFF, tweeting about the news together and having Duff’s rep swear that they’re “best friends”. Ms. Duff tweeted to her fans,
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
And here’s what her rep told E! News:
Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have mutually decided to an amicable separation. They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time.
Okay, so…what am I missing here? They’re going to remain best friends and be in each other’s lives and they’re sitting there together tweeting, but they don’t want to be married? More from E!:
A source close to the couple added that their separation is extremely friendly and didn’t stem from any particular incident. They simply drifted apart over time, despite trying couple’s therapy to fix their romance. They remain the best of friends.
“They simply drifted apart over time” makes it sound like they were married a hell of a lot longer than 3 damn years.
