Heidi and Spencer -- Reunited and it Feels So Bad

9/13/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi and Spencer, please ... just divorce already. We got these photos, which were taken yesterday just north of Los Angeles, and the rat we're smelling is really beginning to stink.

0913_heidi_spencer_launch_pcn
Although Heidi insists she's divorcing Spencer, they were walking in stride in Carpinteria, CA at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

Spencer is fresh off his arrest at the airport in Costa Rica, after he was snagged for illegal firearms possession, cited and released.

If these crazy kids can't make it work, what hope do the rest of us have?


Spencer Pratt Was Right, He Was Arrested

9/12/2010 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Every now and again, Spencer Pratt does actually tell the truth -- turns out he really was arrested in Costa Rica yesterday.

0913_spencer_EX_TMZ_01

As we told you earlier, Pratt told us he was busted in Costa Rica for felony possession of a firearm on his way back to the U.S. yesterday. He was cited and released.

Now, we've gotten our look at an arresting document from Costa Rica -- and even though it's in Spanish, it does have his name on it and includes fun words like "guilty," "charged" and "prosecution" (thank you, Google Translate). 

Heidi's name is in there too, listed as his spouse -- and his occupation is listed as "actor."

That word must mean something different in Costa Rica.

Spencer Pratt -- I Was Arrested in Costa Rica

9/12/2010 11:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're not vouching for Spencer Pratt, but his people tell TMZ Spencer was busted at an airport in Costa Rica for illegal possession of a firearm.

0912_Spencer_Pratt_TMZ_ex
As the story goes ... Spencer was on his way out of the country when he was busted for felony possession. We're told he was booked and processed at a local jail and later released after turning over the weapons and signing a confession with the DA.  Yes, we're skeptical, too.

So far, we haven't been able to confirm any of this. But we do have this bizarre statement from Spencer himself:

"As part of my spiritual cleansing I've spent the last week living alone in the jungle, reflecting on my past transgressions, and working to become a better person. I had to live off the land, and hunt to survive. As I departed the country this morning to continue my spiritual journey, I mistakenly brought my hunting weapons to the airport. It was an honest mistake, and they sent me on my way. On an unrelated note, I'm not allowed in the country anymore -- but that's because of the chicken incident."

Well, we know he can't get arrested in Hollywood ...

Heidi and Spencer -- Bored With the USA

9/9/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are each separately talking about permanently moving to Costa Rica.  Do we smell a rat yet?

090710_speidi_tmz

Sources directly connected with Spencer tell TMZ ... he wants to move to Costa Rica for two reasons -- it's a lot cheaper than L.A., and he would be closer to Heidi and possibly salvage his marriage.

Of course, reason #2 assumes Heidi is also moving to Costa Rica.  So we checked with sources in direct contact with her, and they're now telling us Heidi is indeed noodling on the idea of living in the Republica de Costa Rica. 

So the question -- Is this whole divorce thing a pile?  Heidi's friends are kinda hedging, saying she loves Spencer but doesn't know how to deal with all the problems.

No word on how Costa Rica feels about this.


Playmate to Spencer

Gimme Back

My XXX Tape!

9/6/2010 4:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Spencer Pratt may be in possession of a sex tape after all -- one that doesn't feature himself -- because Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon is threatening to sue Pratt over some private XXX footage he allegedly stole from her home.

0903_Spencer_Karrissa_Shannon_DOC_Launch_TMZ_EX
Karissa's lawyer fired off a letter to Spencer -- claiming that he is in possession of footage that was "taken from [Karissa]" and "contains private materials" featuring herself and boyfriend Sam Jones. 

Shannon demands that Spencer return the footage ASAP -- or else she'll sue his pants off.

Heidi Pulls 'Kill Switch' on Sex Tape Negotiations

9/1/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So much for Heidi and Spencer in XXX ... TMZ has learned the estranged couple has officially cut off negotiations with Vivid Entertainment honcho Steven Hirsch ... telling him they're no longer interested.

Heidi Montag Sextape

Sources close to the couple tell us Spencer's rep shot a letter to Hirsch explaining, "Heidi's made it very clear that she is not interested in releasing any tapes" ... adding, "It looks like she pulled the kill switch."

The letter also explains, "Spencer's not interested in further destroying their relationship by pursuing an avenue she's so vehemently against."

Spencer's rep also told Hirsch that Pratt "thought  $5 million would be enough to convince her, but now [Heidi] is saying she'll bring out the legal team if he persists."

So the question we gotta ask ...

Speidi's Relationship Is for the Dogs ... & Cameras

8/31/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

Pretending to act somewhat surprised they were being photographed, Spencer Pratt made his way to his "estranged" wife Heidi Montag's villa in Costa Rica yesterday to once again exchange the dogs they have joint custody over.

No word who will retain rights to Spencer's Ewok beard or Heidi's bandaged nose in the divorce.


Vivid to Spencer -- Show Me the Sex Tape!

8/29/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Heidi Montag sex tape has thus far been all talk from Spencer Pratt -- and now the president of Vivid Entertainment wants Spencer to show his hand.

0828_steven_hirsch_spencer_pratty_tmz_getty_2
Steven Hirsch tells TMZ he isn't going to down to Costa Rica to meet with Spencer about the sex tape -- until Spencer coughs up a preview. Specifically, Hirsch says he wants to see at least 30 seconds of whatever it is Pratt's got.

As we first reported, Pratt is asking for at least $5,000,000 for his library of footage. Hirsch says he asked Pratt to send him some kind of preview because he doesn't want to be part of any publicity stunt. So far, he hasn't seen a frame.

Looks like we'll find out soon if Spencer is bluffing ... or if he really has Heidi's pair. 

Heidi Montag Sends Mixed Messages on Sex Tape

8/26/2010 8:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Montag says there's no sex tape featuring her and Spencer Pratt ... but she still wants to have a sit-down with the Prez of the biggest porn company in the world.

Heidi Montag Sextape

TMZ has obtained an email Heidi sent to Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch in which she says, "I don't think Spencer has any footage of the two of us. I think hes (sic) making it up for publicity for a new reality show he wants me to do but I really can't tell.  He can be sneaky."

But then Heidi writes to Hirsch, "I wanted to drop you a line and let you know where Im (sic) at with all of this.  If you decide to come to Costa Rica I look forward to hearing your thoughts."

Spencer insists he has a catalog of XXX videos featuring him and Heidi. 

It certainly has the smell of an upcoming release. 0826_hirsch_tmzlive_small

0825_spencer_heidi_EX_Getty_01

We're told Spencer -- who's currently hocking sex tapes starring himself, Heidi and a Playmate -- still "loves" his estranged wife ... and is willing to do whatever it takes to stop the divorce.

In fact, we're told Spencer has finally admitted to having a "fame addiction" ... and wants to seek help for that too.

As for Heidi -- we're told she's down to work things out ... despite all of the public drama he's put her through recently.

Stay tuned ...

 

Heidi on Sex Tape -- Let's Get Down to Business ...

8/24/2010 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Montag is privately acknowledging the existence of her sex tape ... TMZ has learned -- and sources close to the former "Hills" star tell us she's finally willing to talk business.

0823_montag_hirsch_heidi_steven_EX
We're told Heidi has agreed to listen to Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch when he arrives in Costa Rica to make an offer on the footage ... some of which is said to contain girl-on-girl action with Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon.

We're told Heidi wants Hirsch to provide her with the sales numbers on Kim Kardashian's sex tape -- which was also released through Vivid -- because Heidi may be interested in working out a "back-end deal" if Steve can't offer enough cash up front to satisfy Montag.

Hirsch told us he's leaving for Costa Rica sometime next week.

Stay tuned ...
