Hilary Duff's ex-husband Mike Comrie accused of rape - report

Hilary Duff has remained on good terms with former husband Mike Comrie since their divorce in 2015.

Hilary Duff's ex-husband Mike Comrie is reportedly under police investigation over a rape allegation.

The retired ice hockey star, who used to play in the National Hockey League (NHL), has been accused of raping a woman at his Los Angeles home on Saturday night (11Feb17), according to TMZ.com.

An unnamed woman has claimed she met him in a bar that night and they went back to his place and he raped her "multiple times". She reportedly went to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center soon afterwards and had a rape kit administered.

Sources connected to the 36-year-old former athlete claim the woman, who Mike has allegedly known for a long time, had given her full consent to sex. They also allege there was another woman present during their sexual encounter and she has not filed a complaint.

Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) are investigating the allegation but have not yet spoken to Mike, according to the site.

Mike began dating the 29-year-old actress/singer in 2007, they tied the knot in 2010 and have a four-year-old son named Luca. Hilary filed for divorce in February, 2015, citing irreconcilable differences and requesting primary custody of their son, and it was finalised in February, 2016.

They have remained friends ever since and have regularly been spotted together with their son. She spoke to The Love Bomb podcast in November (16) about how they handled the split.

"I think that I was in a very successful marriage for a long time," she said. "We got together based on love and we separated in a very loving way. I can't imagine going through that process with anyone but him, and he continues to be my very good friend.

"I think we handled it very consciously and with a lot of love. But marriage is sacred and marriage is not for everyone. Marriage is work. Marriage is really hard."

She has since dated trainer Jason Walsh, and in January (17), she made her red carpet debut with new man, musician Matthew Koma.
