Heidi Montag Files for Legal Separation

6/8/2010 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Heidi Montag just showed up at the Santa Monica Courthouse and officially filed for legal separation from Spencer Pratt.  She lists irreconcilable differences as the reason for separation.


Heidi did not file divorce papers.  The legal significance of legal separation is that her earnings will become her separate property from the date of separation.  Heidi lists the date of separation as today, June 8.

Interesting ... under the section, "community assets and debts," Heidi wrote, "No such assets or debts."  It's unclear if Heidi and Spencer have a prenup which keeps their assets separate, or if they're broke.


Heidi tried filing in Malibu -- of course -- but the Malibu courts don't do divorces. 

Heidi filed the legal docs in her own handwriting.  There's no evidence she has a lawyer.

It's all fake. She'd have a lawyer do it if it was even remotely true.

Why is she dressed like that in summer in CA? I thought they said the separation was just a PR stunt

What better way to "TRY" and make it seem real and not another one of their publicity stunts, then to do this. Just because you file, doesn't make it REAL..

I'm allergic to "bulls**t

Can we all please just ignore these two? This is a publicity stunt and everyone knows it. Legal separation, as mentioned above, is about as binding as giving your high school sweetheart a promise ring and her running around telling everyone it's a marriage license. AND, if she were REALLY separated from that tool, her lawyer would have filed the papers and she would never have actually gone to the court herself to file. Show me the pictures of Sandra Bullock, Sean Penn, Al Gore, or any high profile person who actually went to the courthouse to file legal separation papers/divorce papers. HORSES***.

I definitely agree this is all for the publicity. I give it 6 months before they are all happy together again. If this was real, she should have marked incurable insanity as the reason for their separation cause Spencer has lost his friggin mind.

Looks like they've been reading TMZ and have seen that everyone is onto the sham! They decided to take it to the next level because even marriage isn't as important as staying in the limelight with these two zeros. Yikes this is just getting sad.

Who cares? If these annoying-waste of space idiots want to divorce, separate, stay married, get surgery, go commando or eat dog poo in their filthy house, I DON'T CARE!

My two cents ;)    

irreconcilable differences? What is it a Christian woman can't live with little Satan? Good for you Heidi. This is the best move for your life. Forget about the career. You life is what is important.

Why didn't she site the reason for the separation as incurable insanity, it would have more sense then irreconcilable differences considering, they are exactly like each other. Would have made the claim a little more believable IMO.

#51, I disagree. I believe for the publicity and to "prove" to the world this WAS for real (not) they WOULD take it all the way to divorce court. So let's see who can outlast who in this idiotic charade!
