Hilary Duff’s ex has rape charges dropped

Hilary Duff's ex-hubby Mike Comrie was the centre of a consent scandal following claims made by a woman that he "raped her multiple times".

The pair, who share a son Luca, will no doubt both feel relieved after prosecutors dropped the case because of a lack of evidence.

According to reports on TMZ Sport, investigators said there was “reasonable doubt” to the claims made by the woman in February this year.

The 36-year-old former NHL star Mike had admitted he had sex with the woman that he met in a bar in L.A, but said it was consensual.

After parting ways, Hilary requested primary custody of their now four-year-old son.

Since the allegations were made, Mike and Hilary have been seen together multiple times with Luca in what was seen as a show of support from the Younger actress.
