Spencer Pratt is not retiring from The Hills to combat cyber threats, despite a hilarious, apparently serious report from People magazine Monday suggesting this.
The website cited a statement from Pratt himself claiming that he was joining the cyber security division at the American Defense Enterprise in the near future.
"All that stuff about him leaving The Hills to fight cyber crime is not true," an insider tells Us. "He is leaving The Hills for six weeks because he was asked to."
Asked to for what reason?
The source explains that Spencer Pratt recently "flipped out" on the set of the show after a female producer made a request to which the evil one objected.
GET A GRIP: Spencer Pratt will attempt to.
"He got so crazy that he screamed at [her], 'I should kill you for even asking me to do that!'" the source says, noting that she was "very rattled" by Spencer.
The producer filed a complaint with the show's top producers, who then threatened to kick Pratt off the show. Spencer's management offered a compromise.
"The show agreed that Spencer would leave The Hills for six weeks to do anger management training at home. If he completes it, he can return to the show."
He'll certainly have time to fit in the classes.
On top of his Hills leave, it was just announced that Pratt is no longer the manager for his wife, Heidi Montag, who hired some psychic "healer" nut job instead.
