Hilary Duff and former hockey player Mike Comrie have decided to separate — and while a separation doesn’t necessarily mean divorce is inevitable, that’s generally how these things go (especially in Hollywood). So we were curious who stood to gain or lose what in a divorce between these two — and shocked with what we learned!
While we would have thought the former Lizzie McGuire star would be the one with the bigger fortune — that Disney money is no joke — it’s actually Mike who is the bigger tycoon in this family. At least he will be someday, anyway.
Hilary is worth an estimated $25 million according to CelebNetWorth.com, certainly nothing to sneeze at. However, while Mike has only accrued $5 million of his own personal wealth, his dad is worth a lot more than that. Like, try 100 times more.
Yep, Bill Comrie is worth an estimated $500 million. The Canadian businessman earned his fortune through his retail furniture and appliance company, The Brick, which is one of the biggest big-box stores in Canada. With 194 stores throughout the country’s nine provinces and two territories, we doubt Mike’s going to need any alimony from Hil should they separate their assets.
However, it’s probably a moot point anyway. Word is these two signed a prenup before they married. And, since Mike’s dad is still alive and kicking, we’re pretty sure he’s still hanging on to that gigantic fortune for now. Still we were pretty surprised to learn just how much money Mike’s family has.
Did you know Mike was sitting on such a hefty inheritance, or are you as shocked as we were?
