Hilary Duff's Dad Gets Jail Time

Hilary Duff's Dad Gets Jail Time

The father of Hilary Duff and older sister Haylie has been ordered to spend 10 days in jail for violating an injunction against selling assets without court approval.

Hil‘s mother, Susan Duff, also wanted her ex, Bob, to contribute $25,000 to a birthday party and gift for the Duffster. A judge ruled that Bob has to pony up $12,500 for the bash. (This is all part of the ongoing two-and-a-half-year divorce battle the two have been going through.)

Susan also claims Hilary is “emotionally upset by the abandonment of her father” and deserves “to have some kind of recognition for a young life well-lived.”

Neither Hilary, whose 21st birthday is Sept. 28, nor Haylie were in court.

    Well it’s not really poor Hills. It’s her mom’s fault who wants that much for a bash and more, her mom has always been known as a hard hoe. I hate her mom she didn’t get confessions of a teenage drama queen because her mom demanded alot of sings like private trailer with huge kitchen plasma tv and other really high demanding things so lindsay lohan got it.

  • anna

    hilary’s dad is such a jerk. I know that is harsh, but he broke Hl’s heart when he cheated on her mom. and she just wasn’t the same. and all her songs could show her pain. i hope he is sorry.

  • Jill O’Shea

    What! Hilary is a grown-ass woman. Why in the hell does anyone expect a grown- ass womans father to pay for her party. That is ridiculous. Is Hilary and her mother crazy.

    Pay for your own damn party, you grown-ass woman.

  • jasmine

    Team Duff

  • BRENDA SONG LOVER

    Susan Duff is a hoe, she demanded ober 500,00 dollars for hilary to star in the confessions of a teenage drama queen and a huge trailer with 24/7 butler sevrice for her duaghter disney eventually didn’t want her and got lindsay lohan for the movien part and Hilary Duff’s dad will be spending up to ten days in jail — all because of a fight over cash for Hilary’s birthday party.

    According to Houston Chronicle, mama Duff dragged her ex into court today — and this is no joke — to ask for $25,000 to throw a party for Hilary’s 21st birthday — because that’s what they spent on Haylie’s 21st bday two years ago.

    After the judge told Bob he had to shell out $12,500 for the bash — he decided to sentence Bob to 10 days in jail for contempt of court for selling assets without court approval to the tune of $367,537.

  • About Jessica Romo

    Thanks Brenda Strong. Ridiculous that judge ,who should be benched, for this put the father in jail because sold some of his asests , without court appointed approval, and did not give the mother $12, 500 for Hillary’s 21st birthday party. Umm ,Hillary Duff is worth tens of millions of dollars. She can afford her own party. She is not a minor so why should the father be held ,by court, to pay this adult’s party. This can really backlash on hillaryDuff and ismaking her look bad in the press.

    Stay strong Hil ♥

    it’s sad to hear about this, but at least hilary’s mom is fighting for her daughters, and only wants the best for them. for those of you thinking hilary should buy her own gifts and throw her own party, why would ANYONE do that?! do YOU buy your own gifts? No matter how rich you are, when you’re in the business, parents always buy you gifts. and when your parents have money, THEY throw the children parties. hilary’s father has the money, he owns a chain of convenience stores in texas! duh! this is all part of the divorce! the dad is SUPPOSED to give the mom money! in his situation, he has to, and should just give the money. at least hilary’s mom doesn’t have favorites, and wants to be fair w/ the amount of money for birthdays. Poor Hilary though, she’s always been so gracious, classy, beautiful, and talented. you can say otherwise, but it’s true. She’s always maintained her dignity, and you can’t deny that. she’s not like all those other teen sluts flashing there vaginas, going to rehab, and taking naked pics. i hope hilary gets that big birthday bash. 21 is a milestone age, and definetly can’t go uncelebrated! it’s a big birthday for most ppl, so for a super famous girl, $25,000 for a gift and party isn’t a lot! hope they get through this! best of luck!

    TEAM HILARY!!!

  • britney’s bitch….

    Umm gold digger, that’s not why he’s in jail, dumbass. He’s in jail because he sold his property when the court had an order telling him not to. Read closely, idiot.

  • seth

    # 26 said it well. but also to “About Jessica Romo @ 08/28/2008 at 3:47 pm”

    Selling property without approval when a divorce is pending is a serious legal snafu. What the man was trying to do is to minimize the share of his ex by slyly selling off what he has to share. Get it now. Many men get away with this kind of crap. Good for the judge that she was stern on this.

    In france the parents are supposed to take care of their children with financial support until 28 (for studies).I don’t know about united states but must be something like that but come on, their children don’t need their financial support anymore since they support the mom!
    god, how stupid judges can be!
    the mom should get a work if she wants to buy her daughter a gift and have a personal trainer and an attorney for the divorce, not relying on her own daughter!!! the dad moved on and can’t even do what he wants with the money he earns for actually running a buisness! incredible

  • laure

    I had to search the information and now I have it I want to to share it. read it it’s interesting:
    The duration of support orders varies both by jurisdiction and by case. Requirements for support typically end when the child reaches the age of majority, which may range in age from 16 [73] to 19 [74][75][76] or graduates from high school, whichever happens later. Some countries and states have provisions which allow support to continue past the age of majority if the child is enrolled as a full-time, degree-seeking post-secondary student.[77][78][79]If the non-custodial parent owes back child support, he or she must continue to make payments until the debt is satisfied, regardless of the age of the child.

    Hilary is not studying anymore and she is about to turn 21, this is insane!

  • jim

    I think that the mom is out of control. This is a woman that has lived in a fantasy world for the last 7 years of her life. Her husband funded everything for these ungrateful people and sent them to Hollywood any continued to work with the company he helped start which payed for them to get where they are in the first place. I think the girls need to look themselves in the mirror and see who is the real problem. Obviously all Hilliary’s mom is after is money, maybe she wants to fit in with Hollywood friends I don’t know but, either way you look at it it is disturbing to think she can get away with taking this to court for two and a half years and a judge will actually let her because of her daughter.

  • suzie

    this is to “Gold Digger!”
    you are the most immature and rudest person. no father hates their children, hilary duffs father does not hate her. you are pathetic

  • Minahil Zaidi Awiley

    Though Hill had a tough time, I think her mom really cared about Hill’s Birthday Bash. She is one in a few for courage, but powerful 4 heart test

    Screw the courts and the drawn out divorces, this guy should have the right to sell that which is his. And as for court ordered contributions to birthday parties that is a bunch of baloney.
    Yeah of course some people may say that he went against the courts and that’s just wrong, but hey how often do courts defy the votes of the citizenry, I mean c’mon?
    Sure maybe one or both of duff’s parents may be jerks but last I checked both Hilary and Haylie were of legal age which means that neither of their parents owes a dime to them or any parties for them.
    Hilary is kinda cool, but no one in the world owes her anything aside from human respect.
