Hilary Duff and Mike Combie enjoying time together
It seems Hilary Duff and her former hockey player husband Mike Combie have joined the growing list of celebrities like Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez who break up but who cannot seem to stay apart.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Hilary Duff and her husband may not officially be back together yet, but they also have not moved forward with their plans to divorce, even after announcing they were splitting in January of this year. Hilary Duff and her husband have been seen together at a variety of events including music concerts and an art festival. While it’s not clear if Hilary Duff and her husband are reuniting or simply remaining on friendly terms for the sake of their children, many friends close to them argue that the couple appears to be having so much fun they might decide to stick it out.
In fact, recently US Weekly reported Hilary Duff and her husband were together at Coachella partying. They were carefree, comfortable and according to one observer they were, “laughing and rocking out under the bright California sunshine together.”

This reuniting seems to have come on the heels of an announcement by Hilary’s sister, Hailey, that she was engaged to her boyfriend Matt Rosenberg, leaving some to speculate that this event may have inspired Hilary to reconsider breaking up with her husband.
Richard Gear dating Top Chef Padma Lakshmi
In more divorce news, US Weekly confirms Richard Gere, 64, may have already moved on to a new girlfriend, Padma Lakshmi, despite the fact he is still in the throes of finalizing his divorce from Carey Lowell, his wife of eleven years.
But sources claim that if they are dating the relationship is in its infancy and the pair could not really even be called a couple. In fact, the couple may simply be having fun and getting to know each other.
Richard Gere and Lowell split in September 2013. They were both previously married. Richard Gere was married to Cindy Crawford, whom he divorced after only four years of marriage in 1995. Lowell and Gere have a son, Homer, who is 14 years old.
Lakshmi, 43, has also been in several high profile relationships including a relationship with Adam Dell, the venture capitalist brother of computer legend Michael Dell. The couple has a daughter together who is three years old. She was also married to writer Salman Rushdie for three years before divorcing in 2007, and dated billionaire Teddy Forstmann until his death at age 71 in 2011.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “Gere is currently filming the movie Time Out of Mind, in which he portrays a homeless man named George who is trying to reconnect with his daughter Maggie (Jena Malone).”
Padma Lakshmi was born on September 1, 1970 in Madras, India. She’s best known for her work on Top Chef but she is also an actress and producer.
