Hilary Duff's Husband

Alleged Mercedes Deadbeat

10/3/2010 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Before NHL star Mike Comrie tied the knot with Hilary Duff, he got into a committed relationship with a $165k Mercedes-Benz  -- but according to a new lawsuit, he refuses to pay the bills or give it back.

According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the Pittsburgh Penguins star bought a 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL550 back in 2008 -- but eventually defaulted on the payments.

The finance company claims they tried to repossess the car from Comrie -- but he has "refused to allow Plaintiff possession."

Now, the finance company claims they want Mike to pay off the rest of his contract -- $103,398.57 ... plus other costs.

Calls to Comrie's reps have not been returned.

I doubt it. There must be more to the story. Not only is he a rich hockey player but his dad is even richer.

Hayseed looks like he just came off the farm, plaid shirt included. Now all he needs is a piece of straw in his mouth.

Not sure why being "heir to a furniture store" would make HIM rich even if his family has some dough. It's all about cash flow, and my guess is he doesn't have any. And if his salary is correct, $1.25 mil, that doesn't go very far after taxes if you're buying expensive cars and living the lifestyle.

What a mismatch! She's way better looking than her husband, and obvioulsy handles her business affairs better too.

I retract my last comment. In looking at other pictures of him online, he's better looking than he appears here. I think they look good together, in seeing other photos.

There needs to be more coverage of stuff like this. It's the rich that are refusing to pay their mortgage, car payments, credit card bills, etc., not the poor. Poor people are scraping together whatever they can to get by and pay their bills in these difficult economic times. The rich are just turning their backs on their bills because they know that the collectors are back-logged. S***.

his family owns the Brick. I'm pretty sure he could buy the dealership if he wanted to. and BTW TMZ the term "star" should not be used so loosely.

Common Sense    

Could there be more to this?
Like, the care was in an accident, or stolen, written off and the insurance company hasn't paid yet. The dealer has to sue Comrie NOT the insurance company.
TMZ is not journalism, sleaze at its best

SNAFU    

As far as marrying for money, it might be reversed. His family is disgustingly wealthy. He's playing hockey as a hobby, not for a living. ( unless he's out of his father's will }
