Heidi Montag filed for divorce from Spencer Pratt Friday in Santa Monica, Calif. Superior Court.
"Well, some say if you can't handle the heat get out of the kitchen. Heidi couldn't handle King Spencer's fame so she got out of the marriage," Pratt, 26, tells Us Magazine.
Montag, 23, cites irreconcilable differences in her petition. She filed for legal separation from Pratt in June.
The Hills stars wed in April 2009.
So will they reconcile?
"This breakup is the latest part of Spencer's master plan," an insider recently told Us Weekly, explaining that the couple is in panic mode now that their MTV reality show has wrapped up. Another source adds that duo is "laughing over" the breakup headlines "and having a blast."
Avril Lavigne is "very happy" with her new boyfriend Brody Jenner.
The 'Girlfriend' singer - who started dating 'The Hills' star in February after filing for divorce from her husband, Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley, last October - and her new lover are very settled in their relationship, according to Brody's friend Audrina Patridge.
Audrina said: "They're very happy together, they're really good together. A lovely couple."
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I first met her a couple of years ago, and thought she was such a nice girl then. She's still a really nice girl now, and is really very talented. She's so great."
Avril and Brody have grown closer and closer in recent months, and recently proved their dedication to one another by having matching tattoos.
Avril has a 'Brody' inking next to her right breast, while Brody's 'Avril' tattoo is on his inner arm.
Whitney Port hasn't seen much of her co-stars in The Hills since she headed to New York to launch her fashion line Whitney Eve.
'I've kept in touch a little bit with Lauren Conrad,' says the actress, 25. 'I was recently back in LA at a concert and saw the whole crew. There are no hard feelings - I'm the kind of person who takes people for who they are.
'I don't like confrontation. Unlike a lot of them, I don't go out looking for drama.'
Whitney also doesn't understand Heidi Montag's osbsession with going under the knife.
'If you really feel like you want a little nip and tuck, that's your prerogative but that's not something I'd ever want to get into - especially to the level Heidi did,' she explains.
