Heidi Montag Files For Legal Separation From Spencer Pratt

Could the Speidi split be for reals?

Heidi Montag seemingly took another step away from husband Spencer Pratt Tuesday by filing for legal separation in a Santa Monica, Calif., courthouse.

This is not to be confused with a divorce. The legal separation merely divides the couple's finances moving forward.

Apparently, Heidi thinks she's going to have a lucrative solo career once The Hills is over this summer.

Longtime friend Jen Bunney has told the press she and Heidi are shopping a "single girls" reality show. But other Hills castmates say the split is merely a publicity stunt to keep the fame-loving couple in the public eye.
