Heidi & Spencer: We Were Never Tortured

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt issued a statement Monday denying recent tales of torture and serious illness they supposedly faced while shooting I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! in Costa Rica.
"Many of these reports are false and inaccurate, including any reports of 'torture' on the show," their rep says. "What we can say at this time is that Heidi went to a hospital in San Jose, Costa Rica, Saturday evening because she was not feeling well. She has been released from the hospital and is doing well. The couple remains in Costa Rica."
"In addition," the statement continues, "it was reported the Pratts have fired their legal counsel. This is inaccurate."
Their statement is a far cry from the reports of the last few days, the most serious of which came from Pratt's own sister, Stephanie, who claimed that Montag was "virtually on her death bed" after the couple were locked in "black rooms with no food or water and freakin' spiders biting them."
The statement also clarifies the whereabouts of the couple, who already tried to leave the set of the show once.
