Heidi Montag And Spencer Pratt Split, Rep Says

'It's a separation for now, not divorce,' Heidi's rep tells CNN.

Heidi Montag has left her husband and "Hills" co-star Spencer Pratt, Montag's rep confirmed to CNN on Friday (May 28).

"Yes, the split is real," Lexi Vonderlieth said. "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."

According to TMZ, which first reported the story late Friday, Montag moved out of the couple's Malibu home because she was fed up with "all the fake bad press that Spencer controls."

After a not-quite-official Mexican ceremony and opting out of courtroom nuptials, [article id="1610024"]Heidi and Spencer tied the knot[/article] in April 2009 at a lavish wedding in Pasadena, California, in front of 200 friends and relatives. While a lot of controversy has surrounded the couple -- including their tumultuous stint on [article id="1613492"]"I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!"[/article] and [article id="1637817"]Heidi's extensive plastic surgery[/article] -- their devotion to each other never seemed to waver.

But there have been some warning signs recently on Montag's Twitter page, where she admitted earlier this week that she has "no friends" and wrote: "I am not Heidi Pratt, I am Heidi Montag."

Neither Spencer nor Heidi -- who are typically very active on Twitter -- have tweeted about the split since the reports surfaced Friday.
