Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, married co-stars ofÂ MTV‘sÂ The Hills, have allegedly split up, according to a rep for Montag, but friends and family question whether the separation is legitimate. Speculation is growing as to whether or not the breakup is merely a publicity stunt to keep the reality stars in the spotlight. Keep reading for more details on what the pair’s pals and siblings have to say about the split…
Earlier this week, a rep for Heidi Montag, star ofÂ MTV‘sÂ The Hills, confirmed reports that the reality TV starlet and her husband, Spencer Pratt, have separated. Montag allegedly moved out of the couple’s shared Pacific Palisades home and is staying with friend (and formerÂ Hills co-star), Jen Bunney to film a new reality show. Montag’s rep says that Heidi “hopes people respect her privacy,” but sources close to the couple accuse them of fabricating the split for publicity.
“Heidi and Spencer are laughing over it and having a blast,” an insider says.Â ”This breakup is the latest part of Spencer’s master plan,” another source adds. Even Montag’s older sister, Holly, tweeted that the couple are “liars.”
Montag’s new roomie, Jen Bunney tells a different story though.Â ”They were waiting forÂ The Hills to be over to split. Now she doesn’t have to pretend,” Bunney says. While Montag and Pratt are apart, Heidi will be filming a new reality show with Bunney in a Malibu home. Bunney doesn’t rule out a reconciliation between Pratt and Montag on the new show.Â ”That will be a big aspect of our show: How Spencer handles it,” she tells Us Weekly.
