Hilary Duff's ex-husband Mike Comrie has been pictured out in Los Angeles for the first time since he was accused of raping a woman multiple times at his home.
Comrie, who is a former NHL star, is under investigation by the LAPD after the woman reported the alleged rape on Saturday night.
The 36-year-old kept his headphones in as he was pictured walking in LA on Wednesday dressed in black jeans, a grey cardigan sweater and black hat after the allegations surfaced.
Comrie, who was married to Duff from 2010 to 2016, denies any wrongdoing and claims the sex was consensual.

The woman claims she met up with Comrie at a bar on Saturday night and went back to his West LA condo, where she alleges the former hockey star raped her multiple times, TMZ reports.
During his 13-year National Hockey League career, the retired center played with the Edmonton Oilers, Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Ottawa Senators, New York Islanders, and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The alleged victim said that immediately after leaving Comrie's house she went to the nearby Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where a rape kit was administered.
Sources close to Comrie claim he and the woman had known each other for some time.
Comrie is said to have acknowledged that he had sex with the woman but claims the encounter was consensual.
The sources also say that a second woman was involved in the encounter, who is not believed to have filed any complaint.

It is understood that Comrie has not yet spoken to police.
Comrie and Duff met in the summer of 2007, and announced their engagement in February 2010, marrying six months later in Santa Barbara.
They have a son together, Luca Cruz Comrie, who is now four years old.
The couple announced their separation in January 2014, and although they were described as 'on-and-off' for some time, Duff filed for divorce from Comrie two years ago, citing irreconcilable difference, with the divorce finalized a year later.
Canadian-born Comrie's family sold their furniture company in 2012 for $700 million.
Comrie previously hit the headlines after a visit to the famous steakhouse Mastro's in Beverly Hills, on January 30, 2015. Witnesses said the retired hockey player spent most of the evening of drinking, alienating his friends and propositioning bar patrons and staff for sex.

The hockey player visited with a friend and was drinking throughout the evening, say observers. He was drinking cocktails along with shots of '1942,' a high end Cuervo tequila at about $33 per shot.
One witness said at the time: 'I work there and I have to say he's a really nice guy, actually. He tips well and is super polite and kind. He was just drunk. But then things got worse.'
'I watched him as he blatantly and repeatedly hit on his waitress. I'm sure she was extremely embarrassed because other customers and staff saw this. She handled it well, remaining kind and professional.
'Mike just wouldn't let up with the flirting. It became a bit creepy. Even his buddy tried to dial him back a bit.'
Comrie was also reportedly seen pulling out hundreds of dollars from his wallet and attempting to pay women for sex after they declined his advances.
Speaking at the time, an observer said: 'I hope what Mike did the other night was an isolated scenario. He was drunk and sad and alone and asking strangers for sex at this five-star restaurant. Celebrities, politicians and dignitaries all dine here on a regular basis. So to have this sort of scene happen is rare.'
