Just about 2 months after filing for separation on June 8, Heidi Montag, 23, has finally filed for divorce from her husband Spencer Pratt, 26, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. “Heidi has amended her petition for separation and today [July 30] has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Spencer,” Heidi’s lawyer Jodeane Farrell confirmed to People.
“The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner in an out of court settlement,” Jodeane continued. “Both parties are amicable with each other and over the possibility of finalizing their divorce.”
On Nov. 20, 2008, Spencer and Heidi were married unofficially in a ceremony in Mexico. On April 25, 2009 the couple were united in a second ceremony in Pasadena, CA.
Now here is the questions: is this for real or is this just another ploy to get attention (that’s what Heidi and Spencer’s marriage has been all about)?
What points to the fact that this news could be real is the reality that stars like to release news that they want to slip under the radar on quiet afternoons when the public is paying less attention. Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson did it by announcing their separation in Nov. 23, 2005 just before Thanksgiving. And, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston also announced their separation on the night of Friday, Jan. 7, 2005.
