Hilary Duff’s 20th birthday isn’t until next week, but her boyfriend, Mike Comrie (center for the New York Islanders) told her that he had picked out an early birthday present for her. He said that he left the present at her sister’s house, in the garage. Hilary thought that it could be a pair of shoes. She was shocked when she saw that it was a Mercedes-Benz G-class SUV with a big red bow on top. It comes with a hefty price tag, too – a cool $100,000.
Hilary inadvertently put the idea of a new car in his head, as he overheard her talking about transportation issues.
“I was planning on getting a big car and I drive a big car anyway, and I was just like, ‘You know maybe I like the G-Wagen,’ and then I was like, ‘No, maybe I like the [Porsche] Cayenne,’ ” says Duff.
Hilary’s manager told her to stay away from the Porsche because Hilary is a “terrible driver” and “didn’t need that kind of power.” Hilary has driven the vehicle several times and told Mike it was “perfect”.
Hmmm. Mike Comrie gives Hilary Duff a freakin’ Mercedes Benz G-Class SUV worth $100,000 as a birthday present? What’s next? A million dollar diamond engagement ring?
