Heidi Montag Needs 'Some Alone Time,' Away From Spencer Pratt

'I just needed space -- even away from my husband,' Heidi says about recent separation from fellow 'Hills' star.

After news broke late last week that Heidi Montag had moved out

of the home she shared with husband and fellow "Hills" star Spencer Pratt, she spoke briefly about the split with People.com. Montag said she needs some time away from her husband of one year.

"I needed some alone time," the reality star said of the separation from Pratt. "There are so many lies out there about me and I just needed space — even away from my husband. I had to get away from the lies my family and supposed friends are saying about me. It's time to concentrate on myself."

Montag has already found a new roommate: She's currently living with former "Laguna Beach" star and sometimes "Hills" pal Jen Bunney. However, just because she's not currently living with Spencer doesn't mean that she doesn't still care for him as she takes this time to figure stuff out.

"I've always loved Spencer," Montag said, adding, "but right now we're working on things."

On Friday, news broke that Montag had moved out of the Malibu home she shared with Pratt.

"Yes, the split is real," Montag rep Lexi Vonderlieth told CNN via e-mail. "Like to say separation for now. As you can imagine it is crazy right now. She's trying to lay low the next couple days. What I can say is that it's a separation for now, not divorce."

While Spencer has remained mum about the breakup and hasn't tweeted in the days before or after the announcement of their separation, Heidi has been active, tweeting about her time with Bunney.

"So happy to finally spend time with my Bunny again! Girls only!!!!" Montag tweeted. "This is going to be the best summer of my life!!!!!! Laying out in the hot sun! Enjoying the beach."
