Besides Mike's wild night out at popular El Lay eatery Mastro's on February 19, Hil attributes growing apart for why the two ended up in splitsville.
"Mike and I were very in love when we met. We both really wanted to get married. I'd been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn't, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy. It wasn't working well enough to stay together, but there was still a lot of love involved. It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match that we used to be. I'm lucky for the person he is and I am and how we decided to handle this."
Sounds reasonable to us. We're just glad the two are successful co-parents.
The All About You singer added:
"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. 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."
While the Duffster paints a more drama-free picture, an insider said of Comrie's recent party binge:
"Hilary finally realized Mike wasn't going to change. He totally blew it and chose to live life like he was single."
Oops! Sounds like the hockey player made a big mistake!
Well, now that Hilary is officially single, somewhere out there you know Aaron Carter is wondering:
