This piece of celebrity gossip comes to us from Star magazine, which means it's almost definitely false. At the same time, it wouldn't surprise us at all.
After staging a fake wedding - one conducted sans marriage license, natch - in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on November 19, attention whores Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have cooked up a new scheme to extend their 15,000 minutes of fame.
The stars of The Hills will pretend to go through ... wait ... wait for it ... a messy divorce, according to the alleged celebrity news magazine!
"Spencer is masterminding the whole thing right now," says a source.
"He'll make sure people see him going in and out of a lawyer's office. Then he'll stage fake fights with [Heidi Montag] for The Hills cameras and talk on the show about how getting married too young wa a mistake and pretend he's conflicted."

So, to sum up here, the next step in the longest-running publicity stunt in history is for the plastic couple to pursue a divorce - though their "nuptials" weren't legal in the first place - then presumably patch things up last-second.
"Spencer will push this as far as he can, but it will be 100 percent fake. He loves Heidi and will never let her go," says the source. "They're just always looking for a way to out-drama Lauren Conrad. It's their No. 1 goal in life!"
