Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have split – at least for now.
The reality TV couple with a penchant for manufacturing publicity had their rep confirm the news.
RadarOnline.com learned that all was quiet at the couple’s house Friday afternoon with workers telling us they had not seen anyone coming or going. No one answered the door at their house.
Just earlier this week Heidi made headlines by announcing her wish to appear in Transformers 3 and she posted an audition video of her firing a pistol at multiple targets at a shooting range.
As usual, Heidi’s bid for attention worked, with the video getting national attention.
In January, Heidi scored the cover of People magazine by revealing she had 10 plastic surgery procedures. That generated months of publicity.
Spencer Pratt was involved in a controversy in March, when he announced he was leaving MTV’s The Hills to work on a cyber security enterprise. That story unfolded into a bizarre saga with allegations that he had been ordered to leave the show after an altercation with a show producer. More details emerged that Spencer claimed the producer acted inappropriately with Heidi.
The details change but the pattern remains: Heidi and Spencer always find a way to make headlines, and that has many questioning the validity of their announced “split.”
On May 13 Heidi called the police on her mother, Darlene Egelhoff, telling People: “My mom showed up unannounced to my house when she knows I have no interest in seeing or talking with her. She tore my heart out on national television. She is just trying to create drama in my life.”
Heidi was referring to an incident when she returned to Colorado to show her mom her new plastic surgery and mom didn’t take it well!
After calling the cops on mom, who was not arrested, Heidi said: “I’m sick to my stomach she would even do something like this. She needs to stay away from me. I’m planning on getting a restraining order against her.”
Her father, Bill Montag, then told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview that he was distraught she did not call home a week after the incident.
“Obviously, we are really concerned because we just do not know what is going on with her and Spencer right now,” Bill told RadarOnline.com.
