Raise your hand if you, like us, are finding it more and more difficult to sift through the 50 shades of breaking up. We live in a world where a term like “conscious uncoupling” is actually a thing and, by the looks of it, Gwyneth Paltrow and ex (?) Chris Martin aren’t the only two taking that middle road to Splitsville.
Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have kept things amicable since the very beginning of their breakup. They even announced the news together in early January. Since then, they’ve been spotted out and about and not just for occasions to co-parent their son, Luca. And while the former Disney star, now 26, has taken a pretty classic “I’m over you” step — aka chopping her hair off — we’re not convinced she and Mike are actually over.
So let’s get the opinion of one of the few people who might know what’s what with Hil: older sister Haylie.
“You know, I think maybe we all think it’s a lot weirder than it really is, but we love Mike, and he’s still so much a part of our family,” the 29-year-old says. “I might see Mike actually more than I see Hilary, which is weird.”
Yep, that is weird and Haylie’s follow-up statement doesn’t do much to shed light on the situation: “I think they’re doing great, and they’re just taking their time. They’re young, you know? So they’re not putting stress to figure out which way it’s going to go.”
Haylie, however, knows where she’s headed: straight to the alter! Husband-to-be Matt Rosenberg popped the big question back in April and she’s still having trouble adjusting. “I still call him my boyfriend, and he, every once in a while, is like, ‘Babe, I’m your fiancé.’”
And Mike? Is he brother-in-law with an asterisk?
