If you thought Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s separation, be it real or contrived, couldn’t get any weirder, you clearly misunderestimated Speidi.
They’re now each accusing each other of having affairs, and that’s not all – Heidi has gone so far as to hire a private investigator to spy on Spencer.
As we reported last week, Heidi is allegedly staying at the home of the hilariously named Cougar Zank, a Marine turned bodyguard and pal of Pratt.
Earlier this year, Zank moved into the home Spencer and Heidi were renting at his request, with Pratt claiming that the two were writing a script.
But when Heidi Montag split with Spencer in May, Zank invited her to stay with him at a home he rents in Malibu, which totally set Spencer off.

He considered Cougar Zank his friend, and is sure the only reason Cougar would have sided with Heidi in the split is that “he wants her for himself.”
A source also says that Heidi just returned from New York City and that none other than Cougar Zank accompanied the plastic princess on the trip.
“They are definitely friends. I don’t know if there is anything more to it than that, but Spencer believes there is,” the source said. “He’s certain.”
It’s reciprocal, too. One of Heidi’s major concerns, close sources reveal, is that Spencer has been seeing another woman since their split in May.
“She is anxious to find out if her suspicions and the rumors are true. It is really important to Heidi to find out if Spencer has been cheating on her.”
Well, sure. As for Heidi’s aforementioned NYC trip, it was to find a producer for her new reality series with Jen Bunney, also her current roommate.
She met with executives at ITV, the company behind I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, which featured Speidi last summer, according to reports.
The source also says Heidi, who filed a petition for legal separation from Spencer last weekend, plans on following that up with a divorce petition.
“It will be filed,” the source says, noting that “She felt she had to get the separation petition done in a rush last week to stop the money flow.”
Under California law, community property ends on the date of separation, meaning anything she earns from that day forward is Heidi’s alone.
“Heidi is very concerned about the finances,” the source says. “Everybody knows she’s made more money than Spencer. She needs to protect it.”
Could this split actually be real? Whose side are you on?
