Looks like it's official.

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 UsMagazine.com.

Montag, 23, cites irreconcilable differences in her petition. She filed for legal separation from Pratt in June.

The Hills stars wed in April 2009.

Montag recently dropped out of a planned reality show with her former BFF Jen Bunney. "She has a lot to deal with right now," blogged Bunney — who left "The Hills" in the second season after feuding with Lauren Conrad over Brody Jenner.

Indeed, a rep for Montag told Us shortly after the split news broke: "Heidi is going through a difficult time."

A source close to the couple says that Montag initiated the breakup when she moved out of their home. "Heidi loves Spencer but she had lost contact with her friends and family," the insider explained.
