Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt Spent $10 Million, Anticipating Mayan Apocalypse

Posted: Updated:

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were so convinced that the Mayan Apocalypse was coming that they blew through $10 million before the calendar hit Dec. 21, 2012.

In a recent interview with Britain's OK! Magazine, Pratt revealed he and Montag spent all their cash before doomsday.

“We made and spent at least 10 million dollars," he reportedly told OK!, via the San Francisco Gate. "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," Pratt told OK! of the apocalypse cash-purge. “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.”

Montag and Pratt also revealed their doomsday misstep to the Mirror, saying that they purposefully decided to spend their money on things like an armored truck and designer handbags because they thought the end was near.

Whether or not Pratt and Montag really spent their entire fortune because of doomsday, or if the former "Hills" stars just have a interesting sense of humor, is unclear.

The couple revealed they were having major money problems as far back as August 2011 when they moved in with Pratt's parents in Santa Barbara.

“I only miss the money,” Montag told "Access Hollywood" in October. “If we would have saved our money, it would have been better.” She continued, “I’ve never really counted, so I’m not sure [how much we lost], a lot … over a million or so."

They might have taken a financial hit with their supposed doomsday spending-spree, but Montag and Spencer just had a big payday. Speidi earned $500,000 to appear on the U.K.'s "Celebrity Big Brother" for what amounted to one week's work.
