Hilary Duff and her husband, Mike Comrie, have been separated for awhile now — or have they? The couple has remained such good friends post-split that they definitely keep us guessing about the status of their relationship. But for now, they’re 100 percent not together… and Hilary is (understandably) having a hard time dealing with it.


“I’m separated from my husband right now, which has been a very difficult thing to go through, but we have a lot of love for each other and we have this beautiful baby,” Hilary told Billboard.

The silver lining to all of this? Hilary — who just dropped the music video for her first single, “Chasing The Sun” — managed to get a lot of good material for her new album out of her heartbreak, including one song in particular that she wrote with Mike in mind.

“[It’s about] my love for this person, that maybe we’re not meant to be together, maybe we are,” Hilary revealed. “It’s very, very personal.”

And as for the rest of the album? She’s pretty proud of it, but the thought of releasing

music after such a long hiatus does have her a little nervous.

“It’s been seven years for me, so I hope — that what I’m writing and what I’m singing and how I’m singing and my taste and the content — I hope it’s what people that have been my fans or that are my fans are going to respond to,” the 26-year-old explained. “And I think they will.”

We can’t wait to hear what she’s been working on!
