Lauren and Heidi are reportedly secret friends; Spencer says “there is no sex tape”

A tabloid report suggests a new layer of deception on The Hills: Lauren and Heidi might actually still be friends, not mortal enemies.

In late October, the two feuding stars “were laughing, hugging and being very affectionate with one another. There were no MTV cameras around. This seemed like the real deal. I saw Heidi coming to visit Lauren at her apartment without her fiancé Spencer Pratt,” an anonymous source told Star magazine. The tabloid reports that the two “were seen together the weekend before Halloween getting into Lauren’s black Mercedes convertible, which was parked in the garage of Lauren’s building.”

Meanwhile, the National Enquirer reported today that Heidi’s fiance Spencer Pratt, who was accused of spreading rumors that Lauren Conrad had a sex tape, has “a sex tape of his own that shows him and a few buddies exploring … hot Brazilian babes.” The paper cites an “inside source” who “says Spencer showed the tape to a Hollywood video editor and repeatedly asked him to spruce it up — saying he might secretly release it into the marketplace while claiming it was ‘stolen,’ a la Paris Hilton, Pam Anderson, etc.”

However, Spencer denies that’s true. “I was never on camera, and there is no sex tape. However, I did go to Brazil three years ago to film a jujitsu tournament for a documentary,” Spencer told Us Weekly. However, an anonymous source offered encouragement, saying that the value of such a tape “could be upward of a million dollars. He could turn it into a money-making machine.”
