Hilary Duff is officially pulling the plug on her four year marriage to Mike Comrie.
The couple separated last year, but the actress has finally filed for divorce. The news comes on the heels of Comrie’s drunken evening at Mastro’s in Beverly Hills, where he propositioned staff and patrons for sex.
Hilary, who has hired celeb attorney Laura Wasser, cited irreconcilable differences and is seeking primary physical custody of their son Luca, who turns 3 next month.
Duff, 27, and former ice hockey pro Comrie, 34, announced they had split a year ago after four years of marriage.
The couple have remained very close, with many people wondering if they were planning to reconcile.
Last September, Hilary stated, “If there wasn’t a chance of getting back [together], we would have filed for divorce…'”
Eyewitnesses at the steakhouse Mastro’s in Beverly Hills revealed the retired hockey player spent most of the evening of January 30th acting like a hot, drunken mess.
An employee said, “Mike and a buddy arrived around 9:00 p.m. and were ushered to their table in the cocktail lounge of Mastros on the second floor. Mike was clearly already tipsy when he arrived. He was already slurring his speech a bit and walking funny, and it was only 9 pm.”
Comrie was reportedly drinking cocktails along with shots of 1942 tequila.
A source said, “I watched him as he blatantly and repeatedly hit on his waitress. I’m sure she was extremely embarrassed because other customers and staff saw this. She handled it well, remaining kind and professional.
It became a bit creepy. Even his buddy tried to dial him back a bit.
“Mike just wouldn’t let up with the flirting. It became a bit creepy. Even his buddy tried to dial him back a bit.
But Mike was on a mission. Several eyewitnesses claim that Mike kept telling his server how much he liked her and how beautiful she was.
“Mike wanted to wait for her until her shift was over and take her out. She told him nicely that she was not available, that she was in a relationship, but that didn’t phase him. He kept insisting, sometimes loudly, that he wanted to wait until she got off work. She was in a tough spot. Then Mike wanted to settle his tab. That would be all well and good, but the tab had been paid for an hour prior and he owed no more money. He kept trying to pay her, for some reason. She couldn’t get through to him.”
Eyewitnesses say that after his server left the table to close up for the night, Mike approached the bar where where a couple were sitting.
An insider said, “Mike’s pal had left an hour or so before. So he’d been just drinking alone for a while and then as the restaurant was closing for the night, Mike approaches this woman at the bar. She is clearly sitting with her boyfriend or husband. Mike ignores the guy completely and starts talking to the woman.
“I heard him say to her, ‘I saw you making eyes at me. Do you like what you see? The woman assured Mike that he was mistaken, and even her date chimed in, trying to reassure Mike that no one was making eyes at him.”
The couple and the staff were horrified at what happened next. He reaches into his wallet and pulls out hundreds of dollars.
The eyewitness described the cringe-worthy moment, “He asked the nice woman at the bar, ‘Ok. How much? How much do you want? I have as much as you need. How much for sex? Name your price. How much do you want to have sex with me?’ When the woman’s date objected, suggesting that Mike had overstepped his bounds and should back away, Mike became aggressive.
Security was alerted and Mike was put in a taxi and ordered to take him home.
Was Mike’s drunken and obnoxious behavior the last straw for Hilary?
