After just over a year of marriage, former Hills star Heidi Montag filed for divorce with her husband Spencer Pratt. Yes, 20 to 30 orgasms a day isn’t enough to keep one married to Spencer Pratt.

People reports that “two months after Heidi Montag went to court seeking legal separation from husband Spencer Pratt, the reality starlet filed for divorce … [citing] the usual irreconcilable differences in the divorce petition filed in Santa Monica, Calif., Superior Court.”

Her lawyer told the magazine, “Heidi has amended her petition for separation and today has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Spencer Pratt. The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner in an out of court settlement. Both parties are amicable with each other and over the possibility of finalizing their divorce.”
