Singer Hilary Duff was in Costa Rica celebrating Valentine's Day when her ex-husband Mike Comrie was named in a sexual battery investigation.

Police have not said that Comrie, who is the father of her son Luca (four) is a suspect, but TMZ is reporting that a woman has gone to police alleging  the NHL star raped her multiple times.

Comrie claims their encounter was consensual and another woman is involved who has not lodged a complaint.

LAPD sources confirmed to multiple US news outlets that an investigation is underway

Duff and Comrie, who family owns the $500m The Brick furtiniture company company, split in 2014 after four years of marriage.

Their divorce was finalised in 2016. m

The former child star avoided the legal drama with a trip to Costa Rica with her new boyfriend Matthew Koma, whom she began dating last year.

Duff and Koma, who previously dated Carly Rae Jepsen, were spotted relaxing at the resort on Tuesday.
