Reality TV stars Heidi Montag and husband Spencer Pratt blew their $10 million fortune, because according to Spencer, they believed the prophecy of the Mayan Apocalypse.
“The thing is, we heard that the planet was going to end in 2012. We thought, we have got to spend this money before the asteroid hits. Here’s some advice, definitely do not spend your money thinking asteroids are coming. But the world didn’t end.”
In 2010, Spencer revealed the couple were broke and on the verge of bankruptcy. They even gave up their luxury home and moved in with his father to save money.
Spencer supposedly spent too much on friends and doormen.
“I would give my friends $15,000 for their birthday. Just cash. I would buy people cars. Every valet I met got a couple of hundred pounds tip. I would pay people $200 just to open doors for us.”
He also spent approximately $1 million on suits and fancy clothes.
“My whole million-dollar wardrobe — I would never wear that again. They’re props. Everything we were doing — we were buying props. I bought a big blue monster truck just to drive it on ‘The Hills’ for an episode. Never drove it again.”
Heidi and Spencer might have hit a financial low with their doomsday shopping spree, but the couple have earned $500, 000 for their appearance on the UK’s “Celebrity Big Brother” for one week.
