Heidi Montag has filed for divorce from her husband of just over a year, Spencer Pratt, Friday, July 30, 2010. Spencer Pratt is now claiming that the whole marriage was just for show from the start anyhow.
Heidi Montag filed for legal separation from Spencer Pratt in late May of this year. Two months later she is making the separation permanent and filing for divorce.
“Heidi has amended her petition for separation and today has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Spencer Pratt,” Heidi’s lawyer Jodeane Farrell said. “The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner in an out of court settlement. Both parties are amicable with each other and over the possibility of finalizing their divorce.”
Heidi Montag cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce in the petition filed in Santa Monica, California Court.
After Heidi Montag filed for divorce, Spencer Pratt told People that the whole marriage wasn’t real and was done for the MTV show they starred in, The Hills.
“I love Heidi but our marriage was a show – it was part of The Hills world,” Pratt said. “That world is on a sound stage.”
Referring to himself in the third-person, Pratt adds: “It’s clear that reality TV-fame-loving Spencer Pratt does not fit with my ex-wife Heidi Montag’s ambitions for a motion picture actor/pop star career and being a single sex symbol for the world.
“Some say if you can’t handle the heat get out of the kitchen, Well, Heidi couldn’t handle King Spencer’s fame so she got out of the marriage.”
The two wed in April 2009 at a church in Pasadena, California. The wedding was taped and aired as an episode on The Hills.
Earlier this year, Heidi Montag underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day.
