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.

As another poster said, it's all about cashflow.
While he draws a nice NHL salary, after a lavish life style and taxes, he could be in debt.

And none of his family's fortune is probably in his name.

He is not a Penguins star yet. Plus he makes a lot more money then Hilary. She hasn't done anything in years

I agree with Brianne. I think people should do a little fact checking. Mike Comrie is not hurting for money in any way. Hockey is basically a hobby for him since The Brick in Canada is huge.

first off, anyone who believes those rumours on why mike originally has been living under a rock since 2003. All sides of the rumour (mike, KLowe, tommy salo, tommy salo's wife) have come out many times saying it was false. not to mention TS's wife had already left canada and moved back to her native country way before mike requested out of edmonton.

also, mike could pay for this car many times and stil be considered wealthy. He does get alot of money from his dad and mike also recently just invested in the Brick himself and he now gets money from the chain on his own. he doesnt use nor need any of hilarys money. if anything, shes the gold digger (i dont think she is but if one of them were itd be her).

mike can afford to take a pay cut in the nhl. the pens originally offered him more than he signed for but he took less because he wanted them to have cap room at the trade deadline. he took less because he wanted to win. say what you want ("he couldnt get anymore than what he got..") but shero and rich winter both confirmed shero offered mike more.

either this story is false, or theres more to it than tmz is reporting/knows. im interested in what mike or hilary have to say on this.

Wow...this guy is far from a deadbeat...his family is worth more then 500 million, he lives off a massive trust fund, second he made HER sign a prenup. He has a ton of money, she is the broke one in the relationship. Sometimes these things are simple and the dealerships know if they make it public that these ppl owe them money it will get cleared up a lot faster then trying to call accountants and publicists.

Mike has more money than Hillary ever will. Mike is the heir to a 500 million fortune and has made millions playing hockey.

Hilary Duff is actually very wealthy. She has been an actress in movies and t.v. since she was 8 and is also a singer. She also has made millions in fashion by launching her own clothing lines, Stuff by Hilary Duff and Femme for DKNY Jeans, and two exclusive perfume collections with Elizabeth Arden. She is also a model for IMG Models New York. She has multi-millions on her own and doesn't have to marry anyone for money.

There are always two sides to every story. It sounds like a bunch of made up lies to get a story. Everyone knows, if you don't have one, make one up. And, as far as their marriage goes, it is no one's business but theirs.

@yah right
Perfect description of Hilary and her own wealth. At 16 Hilary's estimated worth was $60... million, and that was only at the beginning of her singing career taking off as well as the beginning of her clothing line-Stuff by Hilary Duff. Several yrs later her perfume made the scene (her 1st, With Love,is my *absolute* favorite). Then her collabs w/ DKNY, and so on.
Hilary has always been such a positive role model for young girls, and although my daughter has "moved on" from Hil's style of music-her picture of her and Hilary still hangs on her wall.
You've never seen pics of her falling down drunk leaving night clubs every night of the week. She just seems to be a really good girl, and a breath of fresh air after reading about all of the other *party girls* in L
A. and their drug busts and time in jail (if they get any)

I hope things go well for her and Mike! Congrats Hil!!

one of the pre-nups *sources* say she signed was if divorce, she doesn't get any of his inheritance. And because he didn't need the money and wanted a chance to win with pitts. he signed a $500,000./yr contract.... and where i live they consider Asham a hero!!!!! :S

Sounds fair spitfire! Doubt if she needs any of his inheritance.
I'm sure *she* didn't marry for $$$ as she has/continues to done/do very well for herself.
As for Joel Madden laughing...I doubt it. Look what HE ended up with-an anorexic, recovering heroin addict! Wow....I'm sure Hil is soooo jealous. Never could understand how she ended up with him anyway. Ugh...all those tattoos all over him, he looks like a thug. Sorry! Jmo....

This jerk is detested by his fellow teammates on any hockey team he has played on in the N.H.L..The rumour has it that he is a spoiled
little brat and I guess if your daddy owns a multi million dollar
furniture store chain it happens ? How H.Duff bought his B.S. and let him into her bed amazes me ?

Hilary Duff is married? I had no idea. I still thought she was around 15. When my daughter grew out of the Disney channel I stopped watching too by default. Time still passes even when I don't pay attention. Wow, what a concept. So I'm guessing Kim Possible is about 35 now, right?

The girl has no talent. Can't we just send her packing with her talentless hockey player hubby?
