Mike Comrie is under investigation for rape.
The ex-NHL player, best known in celebrity gossip circles for this former marriage to Hilary Duff, may have sexually assaulted a woman at his Los Angeles home
According to TMZ, police are looking into this allegation, which Comrie strongly denies.
Law enforcement insiders tell the website that the alleged victim says she met up with Comrie at a bar Saturday night and then went back to his condominium.
She claims Comrie raped her multiple times.
The woman says she went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as soon as she could, at which time a rape kit was administered.
Comrie, who played for 13 years in the NHL, has not spoken to the cops, but sources connected to the star say he has known the woman in question for many years.
This was not some stranger he met for the time time over the weekend.
These same sources confirm that Comrie had sex with the woman, but insist the naked encounter was consensual.
They also claim the bedroom incident was actually a threesome and the second woman involved has not filed any sort of complaint.
Comrie played for the Edmonton Oilers, Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Ottawa Senators, New York Islanders and the Pittsburgh Penguins over the course of his career.
He retired in 2012 after undergoing hip surgery for the third time, having married Duff in 2010.
The former couple has one child together.
They broke up in January of 2014, but it wasn’t until February of 2015 that Duff filed for divorce from Comrie.
She cited irreconcilable differences at the time and requested primary physical and legal joint custody of their son, Luca.
Not long after Duff’s filing, a report surfaced that Comrie had offered $600 to a waitress to have sex with him.
Despite this controversy, however, Duff never said anything negative about Comrie in the press.
“I don’t want to sound bitter because I’m definitely not, but I don’t know if people are meant to be together forever,” the actress told Cosmopolitan in March of 2015, adding:
“Things happen over a long relationship that you can’t always fight.
“A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel really great, but there are also huge sacrifices.”
After battling in court over custody of Luca, Duff and Comrie finalized their divorce a year ago.
