Was Spencer Pratt's Marriage to Heidi Montag a Hoax?

With divorce underway, the reality-TV "husband" claims there was very little reality to the marriage

It's looking like Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's divorce is for real -- but was their entire marriage fake in the first place? The famously obnoxious Pratt, 26, is broadcasting to the world that he married his The Hills costar purely for television. He's even claiming -- perhaps jokingly, but it's hard to say! -- that he didn't think they'd actually been legally married.

"I love Heidi but our marriage was a show -- it was part of The Hills world," Pratt told People. Later, on Twitter, Pratt feigned surprise at news reports of his divorce.

"I got served with divorce papers?" Pratt tweeted. "I thought that preacher at the wedding was one of the actors like my paid friends and family & exWIFE."

Pratt's follow-up messages said: "This whole time I have really been married? I thought we did that for ratings?" and "Heidi left me seasons ago! Hello!"

We wouldn't put it past Speidi, the infamous couple starring on TV's most staged reality show, to participate in a fake marriage. In fact, that's exactly what the media suspected when the wedding first happened, finding it suspicious that the couple didn't fill out all the legal paperwork and didn't think to include their families in the wedding ceremony. Still, Pratt's "confession" has the definite tinge of sour grapes. He also told People he didn't "fit with my ex-wife Heidi Montag's ambitions for being a motion picture actor/pop star career and being a single sex symbol for the world," adding that "Heidi couldn't handle King Spencer's fame so she got out of the marriage." As for Montag, she told MTV News that she still loves Spencer, and that the split has been "a heartbreaking experience." We don't know which spouse is being truthful -- and frankly, we're not sure if they know anymore, either.
