Actress Hilary Duff was ordered to pay ex-husband Mike Comrie $2.4m as part of their divorce settlement - in spite of his family's net worth coming in at $500m.

The former NHL player is the heir to his family's furniture fortune in Canada, worth hundreds of millions, but an iron clad pre-nuptial agreement with his ex-wife meant she forked out the seven figure sum as part of their settlement.

Former Disney star Hilary (28) and Mike (35) split in 2014 after four years of marriage, but only finalised their divorce this week.

In order to settle their financial split, the singer has been ordered to pay $2.4m to Comrie in order to keep their Beverly Hills estate and another property, according to TMZ.

The pair have one child together, a son Luca (three) and share joint custody. Neither party is providing spousal support.

Duff recently revealed to Redbook magazine that she's in no rush to wed again.

"I don't want to say I wouldn't get married again, but it's not important to me," she explained. "I don't feel I would need to be married to have another child. If I felt strongly enough toward someone or if someone felt strongly about it, I might say OK. But it's not essential."

"It's hard to say that you really can have it all," she added. "I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You're missing out on something, either on the career or on the family. When I'm really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty."
