Hilary Duff’s husband, Mike Comrie is being investigated for rape, a new report claims.
According to TMZ, an unidentified woman is claiming that she was raped by the former hockey pro, 36, at his LA home. He, however, alleges the encounter was consensually.
The woman allegedly met up with the father-of-one at a bar on Saturday night and eventually, they retreated to his apartment, where the alleged incident occurred. She claims she was then raped multiple times. She says she immediately went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where they administered a rape kit.
Sources say that Mike has known the woman for a long time — and he acknowledges that the two had sex, but maintains that she gave consent and was a willing participant. The sources also say that the encounter was a three-way, and the third woman involved has not filed any complaint. So far, Mike has not spoken to law enforcement, TMZ reports.
In addition to his hockey career, Mike is best known for his marriage to Hilary Duff, with whom he shares four-year-old son Luca.
The two married in 2010, and announced their separation in January 2014. Despite their decision to end their marriage — their divorce was finalized February 2016 — the two remained close, even saying they separated in a “loving way.”
“I can’t imagine going through that process with anyone but him, and he continues to be my very good friend,” the former Disney Channel starlet, 29, previously said. “That’s honestly speaking from my heart. So, I think we handled it very consciously and with a lot of love.”
Just last month, she raved about her former partner.
“Mike’s amazing,” she told Cosmo. “We’re so ingrained in each other’s lives. I wouldn’t choose anyone else to coparent with. We are really good friends and care a lot about each other.”
So far, Hilary has remained silent on the accusations against her ex-husband.
