LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Despite a report claiming that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt skipped out on Holly Montag’s birthday bash due to a lack of an appearance fee for “The Hills” stars, a rep for the couple told Access Hollywood the story was “not true.”
On Tuesday, FOX News claimed that Heidi and Spencer were no-shows at Holly’s 26th birthday bash on Saturday at Empire Hollywood in LA.
“Holly was really wishing that her sister could just be a sister and stop by her birthday party, but Heidi only goes places if she is getting paid,” a FOX News source claimed. “I mean, this is her sister and she wouldn’t even show up without a fee. That’s disgusting.”
But on Wednesday, a rep for the couple told Access that the FOX News report “is absolutely not true,” explaining that they were not present as Holly had more than one birthday event.
Heidi and Spencer might not have been in attendance, but the evening still had its fair share of drama.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Spencer’s younger sister, Stephanie Pratt, was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence. She attended Holly’s birthday bash earlier in the evening.
According to her booking sheet, “The Hills” star was arrested at 3:45 AM in Hollywood and held on a $5,000 bail. She was released the next morning.
Stephanie was previously arrested in May 2006 on shoplifting charges.
