Hilary duff separates from partner

Former Disney star Hillary Duff and partner Mike Comrie have divorced after two-years of separation. 

It seems to be the 'norm' in Hollywood, celebrity couples marry and not long after we are hearing reports that they have signed and finalised the divorce papers.

Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie are the latest couple to end their marriage after six-years.

Although the couple separated in 2014, the pair still held hope, with Duff openly speaking about reconciling with her former beau:

'We're uncoupled for now...If there wasn't a chance of getting back together, we would have filed for divorce...'

Unfortunately for the couple it didn’t work out and their divorce was finalized today. 28-year-old Duff had to give Comrie a one-time payout of $2.4 milllion plus sharing child care costs of their three-year-old son Luca.

The fashion icon spoke to Cosmopolitan magazine about her marriage breakdown:

"Mike and I were very in love when we met. We both really wanted to get married. I'd been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn't, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy."

"It wasn't working well enough to stay together, but there was still a lot of love involved. It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match that we used to be. "I'm lucky for the person he is and I am and how we decided to handle this."

Despite the divorce, Duff says that her and Comrie have stayed on good terms telling Ellen DeGeneres that they are "good friends".
