So, is Hilary Duff getting divorced? Let's look at what we know about these rumors.  

1. Is Hilary Duff getting divorced? According to one gossip magazine, she's well on her way. 

Although she didn't mention the name of the gossip magazine that was making the claims of her marriage to Matthew Koma being on the rocks, Duff posted a photo of the offending magazine on her Instagram Stories page. The headline asked, "Hilary and Matt: Marriage on the Rocks Already?" 


2. Duff and Koma have only been married since December 2019.

Even though Duff and Koma have only been married since December 2019, they've been dating since 2017. Duff and Koma met when they began working on her album Breathe In, Breathe Out together back in 2015, and he even wrote the title track to the album.

4. Duff immediately clarified the rumors weren't true. 

In the same Instagram story that Duff showed off to her followers, which suggested that her marriage to Kona was on the rocks, Duff had only one phrase to say in response: "he hasn't told me yet." Therefore, she's effectively shut down all the rumors and said that they're untrue. 


5. She recently made headlines for slamming millennials who refused to self-quarantine during the coronavirus outbreak. 

Not long ago, Duff took to her Instagram Stories to slam millennials who were ignoring self-quarantine warnings during the coronavirus outbreak. "Go home. Stop killing old people," she said to her followers, adding that she couldn't stand seeing millennials actively ignoring all warnings issued by the CDC. She also posted a photo that said "your grandparents were being called to war. You're being called to sit on your couch. We can do this." 

6. Duff and Koma seem to be having fun during their self-quarantine. 

For what it's worth, Duff and Koma seem to be having fun during their self-quarantine. Duff has been posting regular updates to her Instagram page about what she, Koma, and her two children are doing during the required "social distancing." In one post, she and her son seem to be baking a cake. In another, she's playing dominoes with her children, and in yet another, she seems to be enjoying a bit of "Netflix and chill" with the family.
