New York: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt might be back together, but the couple’s financial condition is apparently so weak that they may file for bankruptcy.
After living a life of luxury, which included laying out cash for a home in Malibu, fancy cars and private jets, as well as financing Montag`s music career, the two have not only been left penniless, they also owe 2 million dollars in taxes.
“We were immature, worrying too much about the famous part instead of the actual business part. In hindsight, we shouldn`t have spent any of our money. We should have been low-key and saved," the New York Daily News quoted Pratt as telling Life and Style magazine.
With ‘The Hills’ off the air, Pratt said he’s ‘looked into unemployment checks’.
“We thought ‘The Hills’ was going to be like the original ``90210`` and we’d have another five to 10 years. The ratings were consistent. But we never saw ``Jersey Shore`` coming. Before, TV audiences were fine with seeing us all argue, but now they want you to punch one another in the face and hook up with three different people. Our cast was a bit boring and snooze worthy in comparison. No wonder we got cancelled," he explained.
But the pair insists they don’t need sympathy over their self-inflicted troubles.
“We don’t want sympathy. We did this to ourselves and feel like idiots. But we’ve grown up and are definitely not as naive anymore,” concluded Pratt.
