Despite reports from celebrity gossip sources such as Radar Online that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are back together despite their public breakup, the plastic pairing tells People that their separation is literal as well as emotional.

"We don't live together," Pratt said, shooting down recent rumors that the gruesome twosome is co-habitating even after Heidi filed for divorce last week.

He and Heidi Montag are on good terms and are still spending time together, but Pratt says they're not reconciling and aren't living under the same roof.

Spencer Pratt has been in and out of the couple's Pacific Palisades residence, as seen on The Hills, while Montag is living in Malibu (with Cougar Zank).

Still, Speidi does see each other often.

It's easy to see why the public would be skeptical of anything these two say or do, but Speidi insists their breakup, while amicable, is the real deal.

"Spencer and I are finally moving forward with our lives, but with any divorce there is much to work through," Montag said. "We've been together almost five years ... there are assets to divide, work to be discussed, and we share our puppies."

The split hasn't been easy on either one.

"This has been a heartbreaking experience to go through and it's not that I don't love Spencer," Montag said. "We just want different things in life."

Spencer Pratt says he loves Heidi, but calls their marriage a show for The Hills. Sad. If these two can't make it, what hope is there for any of us?

Ever since the first reports of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt splitting up, Hills fans understandably assumed wondered if it was another big PR hoax.

Looks like it isn't.

Almost two months after the plastic princess went to court seeking legal separation from the puppet master, the reality star has filed for divorce.

Heidi Montag cites the usual "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the pair's split in a divorce petition filed in Santa Monica, Calif., Court.

"Heidi has amended her petition for separation and has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Spencer Pratt," attorney Jodeane Farrell said. The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner."

Hopefully Spencer Pratt finds comfort in his beloved crystals.

Adding that terms will be hashed out in an out of court settlement, Farrell said "both parties are amicable with each other and finalizing the divorce."

The couple staged a sham wedding in Cabo in 2008, then tied the knot for real in April 2009 at a church in Pasadena, Calif., appearing happy.

Things went downhill fast, however.

Heidi Montag underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, fired Spencer as her manager, released terrible music, accused The Hills creator Adam DiVello of sexual harassment and became estranged from her family and so on.

For his part, Spencer Pratt has grown increasingly eccentric, and even admitted to being a fame whore and choosing his "career" over his wife.

Heidi Montag then and now. Enough said.

He echoed that sentiment yesterday to People.

"I love Heidi but our marriage was a show – it was part of The Hills world," Pratt said after the divorce filing. "That world is on a sound stage."

Referring to himself in the third-person, he 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."

Right. So basically, his stardom is just too enormous. Makes sense.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have both kept an uncharacteristically low profile publicly since their separation, but what's going on behind the scenes?

We know you were dying to know.

By all indications, Heidi was moving forward with plans to divorce Spencer, who even confirmed the end of the reality TV match made in heaven ... or so we thought until comments by her model friend, Lauren Stone, after stopping by her pad.

She wasn’t the only guest: Spencer Pratt was there.

“I saw Spencer, he seems really normal. He actually showed us his new project he’s working on,” Stone said. “He showed both of us a clip of the movie."

Gross Speidi

Lauren Stone just offered up some unexpected Speidi intel.

"I thought it was really funny. I think it’s about a lifeguard that’s trying to get girls. The lifeguard is kinda of like a douchebag type of guy, not too cool.”

Okay then.

Lauren Stone says she has no idea if a reconciliation between the two are in the works but “she didn’t even know they were going through a divorce.”

Her confusion isn't unique among fans, websites and even the plastic princess' inner circle. Heidi Montag has kept very quiet about her personal drama.

“I’m actually not sure what’s going on,” Stone said.

“She didn’t really go into many details about anything but the way she was acting it just seemed like she was really happy and free and just living life. She’s been gardening a lot and writing music and she seems to be really happy.”

For what it's worth, Montag recently pulled out of a planned reality show with Jen Bunney and wants to get back to her roots, whatever that means.

What do you think? Heidi and Spencer's breakup is ...

Spencer Pratt is always plotting something, but the former star of The Hills says his impending divorce from co-star wife Heidi Montag is not made-for-TV.

Despite the fact that nobody has seen divorce papers and family and Hills co-stars are skeptical, Pratt tells People that the plastic pair have drifted apart:

"We love each other but I'm a fame whore and I'll never grow out of it. [Heidi] knows that and doesn't want that. She wants to hike, hang out and be calmer."

Calmer? Isn't she pitching her own show?

"I want every kind of press. She believes in bad press. There's absolutely no way my love for fame and her love for puppies will ever work out successfully."

Sad, but true.

Gross Speidi Smooch

TICK TOCK: Are Spencer's 15 minutes finally up?

Pratt, who with Heidi became known as Speidi, says his estranged wife "doesn’t want to be Speidi anymore. She wants to be Heidi Montag: the sex symbol."

"She thought I'd burn out, but I'm still Spencer who went on The Hills to be famous. I still need to do stunts and take cues from Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise."

Spencer Pratt, who mentions he and his ex are "friendly," says Speidi trouble is nothing new. "It's been a constant battle since we got married," he says.

"She would be like, 'Are you really Tweeting that? Are you really doing that?'"

As for the next step, Pratt says he decided to grow a beard (which he debuted in last week's failed party-crashing bid) and turn to art: "I'm switching it up."

"I've already gone for the blonde, spiky-haired look. Now I'm going for the Hollywood producer look. I'm an artist now. I have an easel and everything."

"I'm going for an art show and a gallery."

We hear the show's scheduled for 14:58 ...

Last night, fans said goodbye to The Hills as the very last episode of the hit MTV reality show aired. We'll have our full recap of it for you in a little bit.

The sideshow taking place was an entirely different matter. To mark the end of an error era, the cast gathered for a live show broadcast in Hollywood.

Spencer Pratt? Not invited.

Unsurprisingly, the fame-hungry outcast turned up anyway outside the Hotel Roosevelt, disguised in a gray wig and beard, wrinkles and a large gut.

Pretty funny, but also sad that he's resorted to such gimmicks. Desperate for attention much? It's like a pathetic, last gasp at any kind of relevance.

It wasn't long ago that Spencer caused the commotion. Now he clamors for attention across the street while the real action takes place inside.

Spencer was escorted out by security after trying to enter.

How the mighty have fallen. We're also pretty sure that's his sidekick Emilio Masella, a.k.a. Snooki's ex-boyfriend, behind him and to his right.

Spencer Pratt has been very ... well, non-Spencer Pratt lately.

Uncharacteristically absent from the spotlight, he hasn't been seen in public in over a month, or on The Hills, where he and Heidi Montag were cut loose without any explanation from the show, which ends its six-season run tonight.

Might he be planning a surprise - and unwelcome - public foray this evening? Implying he may crash The Hills finale party, he Tweeted on Tuesday:

“Booking my room @Roosevelt Hotel Hollywood now that I have no place to live I think i should just move in there today (to) stay near the action.”

No place to live? We know he looks like a homeless man, but is Spencer Pratt really out on the street? At least he's comfortable as a mountain man ...

Wouldn't you know it, the Hollywood Roosevelt is the site of tonight’s finale party, for which Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are not on the guest list.

Kristin Cavallari, Brody Jenner and other stars will be on hand, along with the show's two most famous alumnae, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port.

No Speidi, though, after clashes with Hills creator Adam DiVello on and off set led to an unceremonious, unexplained parting of ways with the show.

Heidi's also moving forward with plans to divorce him, supposedly.

Cavallari calls the situation “sad,” and says as far as she knows, no one has spoken to either member of the duo since they last filmed together.

“I’ve reached out to Heidi,” says Kristin, who fixed up Speidi. “I can’t get a hold of her because she changed her number. I'd love to talk to her.”

You knew this was coming. If Speidi really is splitting up, which oddly enough seems like it might be the case, there's no way it could remain amicable for long.

One day after coming on to Justin Bieber on Twitter, Heidi Montag disavowed her apparent online flirtation and accused Spencer Pratt of hacking her account.

Heidi's Tweet to Bieb said the following: "now that I am getting divorced I think you and I should do a photo shoot together! Cutie ;)! I'm closer to your age."

Presumably, she means closer to his age than Kim Kardashian, Justin's previous Twitter GF. But to hear Heidi Montag tell it now, she didn't even write that.

Classic Spencer and Heidi

Later in the day, Montag sent a message to celebrity gossip blogger and possible child pornographer Perez Hilton which pinned the Tweet on Spencer Pratt.

"I didn't write that thing about Bieber my fame hoer x husband hacked my Twitter and wrote that he is so lame!" the plastic princess wrote, intelligently.

She also got in this dig at her estranged spouse"

"Let me be clear OMG! Spencer used my name to get a check on his book 'how to be famous' I had nothing to do with it! He is the true fame whore!"

You heard it here, folks.

We're as surprised as you are, but according to new intel, Heidi Montag is not only serious about divorcing Spencer Pratt, she got a plan to do it quickly.

She's hand-picked attorney Jodeane Farrell to handle her divorce and this lawyer isn't playing games, taking every step to finalize it as fast as possible.

Farrell, who TMZ reports has practiced family law for 24 years and currently handles divorce mediations, will start by setting up a meeting with Speidi.

That will occur in approximately two weeks.

Reliable sources say both Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt want the divorce mediated, meaning the gruesome twosome will attempt to reach a settlement.

Mountain Man Style

This will be done privately, with the aid of attorneys and possible third-party arbitration. Then they will wait the six months required by law, and it's over.

Heidi wants Farrell, a longtime family friend, to be the mediator, provided Spencer is down with it. Farrell does not foresee any conflict of interest there.

Farrell plans to meet with Heidi and Spencer together, and if he's on board she'll schedule a meeting with an accountant to go over assets and liabilities.

As if this weren't crazy enough - the whole thing reeked of another publicity stunt - so far things are said to be "amicable" between Heidi and Spencer. 

Just last week, allegations of infidelity surfaced from both camps, and Spencer's increasingly odd behavior reached new depths. But all is peaceful now.

We'll see if that lasts.

Spencer Pratt wants your attention celebrity pictures.

The Hills star, increasingly aware of his decreasing relevance and grasping for ways to stay in the news, has formulated a plan - reporting the news himself! 

Not unlike Tila Tequila (there's a career role model for you), Spencer once ruled the celebrity side of the gossip game, but now wants to be on our side of it.

Thursday, he told his Twitter fans to send him celebrity photos, promising: "I will post them on my new blog KINGSPENCER.com and give you credit and $.”

Yes, he’s got a website called King Spencer dot com. Too bad he forgot to actually launch it by the promised date of June 13 before plugging it ... dumbass.

Don't bother going to KingSpencer.com. You've seen all of it already.

In another Tweet, he says “anyone tweet me any celebrity sitings I'm starting my own PAP agency! I will pay for good tips if they get me the photo hahaha!”

Yeah.

While you have to give Spencer Pratt his due for the entertainment he provides, he may need to fine-tine his business acumen if he hopes to succeed here.

Rambling Tweeting rampages are fun to read, but you're gonna need more than that. Feel free to email us if you want a guest column at THG, though, man.

NOTE: Follow THG on Twitter. No submissions of celebrity pics required - and unlike some wannabe gossip blogs, our site's actually live. Most of the time.

Cut off by The Hills, and possibly by his wife, Spencer Pratt has been left alone with his thoughts. Fortunately, he still a Twitter account on which to share them.

Without any reality show producers to worry about, the hothead returned to the social networking site after a prolonged absence, unleashing a fury of Tweets.

No one is safe.

While he did not directly address his separation from Heidi Montag, Spencer targeted Hills stars and strangers alike in a rant easily comprising 100+ Tweets.

On Lo Bosworth: “Lo has been banging 60 year old rich guys on the side to keep up her look because she only gets paid few grand and plays star HAHA.”

“I pray to see @lobosworth ugly ass out in a club now that i can do whatever i want without feeling bad for heidi! lo your [sic] f--ked! Wh-re!”

Crystals For Brains

Spencer Pratt has officially lost it.

On Audrina Patridge, who he previously accused of getting "Tijuana plastic surgery": “Audrina has fake everything. Damn we fakeass reality show foolios.”

On Whitney Port, now the star of MTV's The City: “No whitney port sucks and has ever since we were in high school together before all her surgeries.”

On Heidi's mom, Darlene Egelhoff: "it's her fake mom. ask the government! darlene lied about everything she told Heidi. she stole heidi as a baby! REAL."

Wow. Spreading the love to strangers as well, Spencer targeted a particular Twitter user from England who had been writing to him, sending replies.

“Glad we didn’t let you in America foreigner b--ch! USA is to [sic] smart for you fool. log off our American website and go do something foreigner.”

Heidi filed for legal separation from Spencer on June 8 with photographers in tow, igniting speculation that the couple was just scheming for publicity.

With Spencer absent from The Hills and real life in recent weeks, however, you have to wonder if Heidi really did up and leave the nut job for good.
