Heidi Montag files for divorce from 'Hills' husband Spencer Pratt

July 30, 2010 |  1:18 pm

Heidi-spencer-divorce Looks like it's really over for reality television duo Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.

The surgically enhanced blond took her petition for legal separation a step further on Friday, filing for divorce in Santa Monica Superior Court.

"Heidi has amended her petition for separation and today has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Spencer Pratt," her lawyer tells People magazine.

"The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner in an out of court settlement. Both parties are amicable with each other and over the possibility of finalizing their divorce."

The once-dynamic duo are no strangers to publicity stunts, leading to wide speculation of a hoax when news of their breakup hit in late May.

Since parting, Montag's career got a nice jolt of adrenaline with proposed reality projects and a cameo in Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston's "Just Go WIth It." Pratt has spiraled deeper into obscurity, with fleeting designs on starting a paparazzi agency.

Montag and Pratt held a big white wedding in April 2009 in Pasadena, where the ceremony, naturally, was filmed for the now-defunct MTV show "The Hills." Sadly, the world won't see their divorce proceedings in prime time. Then again, we don't put anything past these two.
