Report: Hilary Duff Blames Split on Estranged Husband

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- In the wake of Hilary Duff's announcement that her marriage to former NHL player Mike Comrie is ending, a source tells US Weekly that the singer/actress blames her soon-to-be-ex for the split.

"She felt he didn't put enough effort into the relationship," according to the source.

As previously reported, the couple tried to make the marriage work through 18 months of counseling, but the Us Weekly source says Comrie "wasn't doing any of the things they'd worked on."

The report says Duff, 26, saw a change in Comrie, 33, right after he was forced to retire from hockey due to an injury.  "He never did anything," the insider said, adding that Comrie's personal ambition was deeply affected by the loss of his career.

Another source says the couple ultimately realized that "the spark was no longer there" and "they are better as friends."

Duff and Comrie wed in 2010 and are the parents of a 22-month-old son.
