According to TMZ, Mike Comrie, Hillary Duff's ex-husband is under investigation by the LAPD for rape.

According to TMZ, an unidentified woman is claiming that she was raped by the former hockey pro, 36, at his LA home.

Sources say that Mike has known the woman for a long time - and he acknowledges that the two had sex, but maintains that she gave consent and was a willing participant. The woman says she went immediately to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center nearby and asked for a rape-kit to be administered.

The sources add that Comrie has verified he had sex with the woman, but insists it was was consensual.

Mike Comrie with his former wife, actress Hilary Duff, in 2011.

The 36-year-old Comrie played for six National Hockey League teams in his 13-year career, including stops in Edmonton, Philadelphia, Ottawa, Pittsburgh and New York (Islanders). "We got together based on love and we separated in a very loving way". The divorce was finalized in January of 2016.

Outside of his marriage to Duff and his sports career, which ended completely in 2012, Comrie has been known to be a bit of a recluse, but his name has occasionally come up in other negative headlines.

Eventually, Mike Comrie left the restaurant without further incident or harassment to the waitress.
