Theirs was a love made in reality television heaven (or hell, depending on how you look at it), yet Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag have apparently called it quits and very well may be seeking divorce advice in Pasadena. The Hills stars have fought separation and divorce rumors for months, but last week things took an official turn when Montag filed for legal separation in a Santa Monica, Calif., court. After attempting to file in nearby Malibu, which does not handle divorces, Montag filled the separation paperwork, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the cause, in an effort to thwart her estranged husband from being entitled to any of her future earnings.
As always with these two, the separation is just the tip of the iceberg. The blogs are filled with rumors of infidelity, battles over money and the inevitable question of how "real" this whole separation is to begin with. And to think that it seems like only yesterday we were asking how "real" the marriage was to begin with! According to RadarOnline, Montag allegedly has hired a private investigator to determine whether Pratt has been dating other women. Pratt has fired back with affair accusations of his own, claiming that Montag has been involved with her bodyguard Cougar Zank (who recently invited the blond starlet to stay in his Malibu home; Pratt subsequently fired Zank from his guard dog duties). The legal papers seem to prove the split is legit, but columnists speculate this could be yet another ploy to keep "Speidi" in the headlines.
Meanwhile, the pair also garnished headlines for being broke. Sources say the couple's wild spending on everything from designer bags to plastic surgery has completely depleted their bank account. MTV's The Hills recently wrapped its final season, and financial prospects for both Pratt and Montag are few and far between.
