It has been a tumultuous few months for the duo formerly known as Speidi. Heidi Montag moved forward with [article id="1644908"]a divorce from "Hills" co-star Spencer Pratt[/article] and subsequently tweeted to Lauren Conrad that [article id="1646279"]her friend was correct about Spencer's ill intentions[/article]. And this week, the two were spotted away from their California homes.
target="_blank">TMZcameras caught the pair, who have been sparring on Twitter, together in Costa Rica. Heidi apparently had intentions to spend some time away from Malibu in the wake of the split; Spencer, who reportedly followed her down there, spoke to People.com about why they happened to be in the same country.
"I had to bring the puppies down and help them move in," Pratt said about why he was spotted down there with his estranged wife. "[Heidi] thought I was going to leave, but I'm not. I didn't want to get divorced ... I have nothing in Malibu, I'm homeless, I'm nothing without her."
While there is still talk of a sex tape starring Heidi, she says that it does not actually exist. "Everything was calm and going smoothly with the divorce," she said. "We were really getting along and it was amazing he was being so thoughtful to help me move. Then things turned. There is no sex tape that exists and there never was. Spencer is trying to drum up press. This is exactly why I wanted to divorce him in the first place." Spencer insists that the footage does exist, and that he plans to release it.
For now, Heidi is just trying to look out for herself. "I'm going to leave the hotel and get a house because Spencer won't leave me alone and won't go back to Malibu right now," the former reality star explained. "It's just too hard. I still love him, but I can't stand what he's doing."
