“I love Heidi but our marriage was a show – it was part of The Hills world,” Pratt said Friday. “And that world is on a sound stage.”
As for the reason for the split, Pratt, referring to himself in the third person, said, “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.”
In the end, it seems the relationship just wasn’t big enough for two divas.
“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.”
