Child Sex Abuse and Incest

Heidi Montag
's father has been arrested for allegedly committing years of sexual abuse and incest with a 13-year-old girl and according to authorities it went on for years ... but sources connected to Heidi and Spencer tell TMZ ... the alleged victim has significant credibility problems.

Bill Montag was picked up by Aspen cops Thursday night. Authorities say the sexual abuse continued until the girl turned 17. The complaint says he abused the child at least 50 times.

As for the time frame ... the alleged abuse occurred between 1993 and 1998. It does not line up with Heidi or her sister Holly.
  
According to the docs, Bill Montag "groomed her with back rubs in her bedroom in the basement of their home," and escalated by attempting to insert a vibrator into her vagina. At age 16 he began performing oral sex. It then gets extremely graphic.

The documents describe the last incident in 1998, when he allegedly crawled into bed with her, tried to pull down her underwear and said, "I want to have sex with you." Authorities say she rebuffed him by saying, "Get the hell out of my room, no!" And he responded, "I thought that's what you wanted. I thought you loved me the way I love you."

Our sources who are very close to Heidi and Spencer tell us ... they are very familiar with the accuser who "is determined to destroy the family."  They say she has stalked Heidi and Spencer at various public appearances to the point security had to remove her.  Heidi and Spence believe Bill Montag will be exonerated.

'The Hills' Jason Wahler

Lands Nearly $1M Pad

Jason Wahler from "The Hills" has gone from a jail cell to a swanky, house back in the O.C.

It's a pretty amazing turnaround ... Jason was living on booze and coke, raking up 6 drinking-related arrests since appearing first on MTV's "Laguna Beach" and then "The Hills."

He hasn't gone far from his roots. Jason snagged this 2,250 square foot home in Laguna Niguel for $875K. As for how ... for starters he's off drugs and booze, with the help of his 2010 appearance on "Celebrity Rehab."

And paying the mortgage is doable, because he works as a big wig at a rehab facility.

Jason married model Ashley Slack back in 2013 and they are happily sunning themselves around their pool in their gated community.

That's a pretty nice reality.

Spencer Pratt

I Miss Being Famous

Spencer Pratt Misses Being Famous
Spencer Pratt just showed us what it looks like when you take fame away from a fame whore ... and the results are really sad.
 
Pratt was on his way out of 1Oak when he moped to photogs how much he misses them, then added, "I miss being famous. I miss it ... I miss it."

But that's not all ... the inebriated reality star also says the people who are famous in 2015 don't deserve it -- because they don't put in the same kind of work he did.

Farrah Abraham disagrees.

Cryin' Over Uber Long Wait

Two Choices:  1) Audrina Patridge got in a blow-out fight after a Halloween party Saturday night ... or 2) she dissolved into tears because her contacts were hurting her and her Uber didn't show.

Audrina and BF Corey Bohan had just left Hyde when she hit the ground and started bawling. Audrina tells us there was no fight -- she was just pissed because it was clear they'd have to wait forever for the Uber and her contacts were uber-uncomfortable.

Well ... we're not buyin' what she's selling. Take a look at the video. Then you decide.

102414_kristin_cavallari_launchThe Chicago Bears are NOT a lost cause ... despite the fact they've lost 3 out of their last 4 games ... this according to Jay Cutler's wife. 

Kristin Cavallari was arriving at an event at the Mondrian Hotel in L.A. last night -- striking pose after pose for photogs -- when she was asked about the struggling Monsters of the Midway. 

But the former MTV star made it clear she believes in her hubby's squad ... even if the sports writers (and Brian Urlacher) have turned against them.

Audrina Patridge Relationship
Audrina Patridge is on the market again after 5 years with BMX biker Corey Bohan ... but retired NFL stars apparently aren't part of her rebound plan.

Audrina was at LAX giving us some relationship advice when a recently minted NFL Hall of Famer just happened to stroll by ... which got our cameraman thinking he'd be the perfect rebound guy.

We'll let you see how the encounter played out ... but suffice to say she's still available

Poor Sapp ... look what he's missing out on.

Exclusive Details
Spencer Pratt Heidi Montag Celebrity Wife SwapHeidi and Spencer Pratt are finally splitting up ... briefly, anyway ... because they are taking part in "Celebrity Wife Swap" and taking home a nice check for it too.

According to our sources, the O.G. most hated couple of reality TV shot an episode that airs next week -- and they'll be swapping with seven-time Olympic medalist Amanda Beard and her husband.

Our sources say the Pratts took home $50,000 for the gig ... which we know is nearly $20,000 more than some other celeb couples have been paid.

Good for them ... but let's hope Amanda got twice that amount.

'Hills' Star Doug Reinhardt

Neighbor War BACKFIRES

Judge Orders Neighbor to Pay $50K

Doug Reinhardt
's neighbor is really eating his hat now -- after he took the former "Hills" star to court and demanded a restraining order ... the judge ordered the NEIGHBOR to pay $50,000.

TMZ broke the story ... Reinhardt's real estate agent neighbor obtained a temporary restraining order against the reality star back in December, claiming Reinhardt had threatened to "beat the f***" out of him for complaining about his late night parties.

The neighbor was back in court recently -- to see if the judge would make the restraining order permanent -- but not only did the judge deny the neighbor's request ... he ordered him to pay $49,500 to cover Doug's legal fees.

Doug's attorney tells us, the judge ruled in Doug's favor ... finding the neighbor's complaint was frivolous.

I'm a Bona Fide Rock Chick Now

Performs in Vegas (Sort of)

3/3/2014 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


One thing is undeniable ... Audrina Patridge is pretty ... out of tune when it comes to singing -- but that didn't stop her from rocking a legendary stage in Las Vegas this weekend.

The former "Hills" star went to Rock n' Roll Fantasy Camp at the House of Blues in Vegas and got to perform an original song with actual rockstar, Lita Ford.

It's unclear how many days Audrina spent at the camp -- but she obviously spent more time on her rocker chick moves (decent) than anything else.

Hey, at least she's living her dreams. Off key, but still ...

For the record, AP ... here's how it's done. Classic Lita.

12:45 P.M. PT --
We just heard from Reinhardt's attorney who told us, "Doug Reinhardt was surprised and very disappointed that one of his neighbors took a complaint about alleged noise at a party that could have been handled in a conversation over the backyard fence to the courts." He says Reinhardt is looking forward to telling his side of the story in court.
update_grey_gray_bar
Doug Reinhardt -- former Paris Hilton BF who appeared on "The Hills" -- has been hit with a temporary restraining order after allegedly threatening to "beat the f**k" out of his neighbor, TMZ has learned.

The 29-year-old -- who's also the heir to a frozen burrito fortune -- has been living in a $15k-per-month home above the Sunset Strip, according to legal docs ... and his next-door neighbor says he's been a total nightmare.

The main issue ... the neighbor, a bigtime real estate agent, claims Doug's been throwing crazy parties that don't START until 2:30 AM.

And when the neighbor complained, he says Doug called him a "pain in the butt" and said, "I'm going to beat the f**k out of you."

The neighbor says he fears for his life ... and begged the courts for protection.

We've learned ... the judge issued a temporary restraining order against Doug, requiring him to keep his distance from the guy -- a whole 5 yards (since they're neighbors, any other distance would essentially require one of the parties to move).

Attempts to reach Reinhardt for comment were unsuccessful.
