Heidi Montag: My Web Site Was Hacked
10/16/2007 AT 12:00 AM EDT
Heidi Montag wants to set the record straight about a surprising posting that went up on her Web site Monday–she didn't post it.
"My Web site was hacked last night, so I'm not sure what was posted up," she said Tuesday during an event at a Los Angeles Taco Bell in support of World Hunger Relief Week.
A posting dated Oct. 16 and titled "The Truth" went live on Monday night, reading: "Me and Spencer did spread the false rumors about Lauren's sex tape."
The Hills star Lauren Conrad has long blamed Montag and her fiancé Spencer Pratt for starting rumors about an alleged X-rated tape, which Conrad insists does not exist.
Montag and Pratt seemed more perplexed than anyone else as to how the posting made it on the site, with Pratt citing the "Blonde Defense." "I don't think Heidi would even know how to log in to her Web site," he joked to reporters. Montag quickly added, "Yeah, I don't even know how to run that, or else I would have put up World Relief Week, and all these statistics about world hunger."
As for finding the culprit behind the posting, Pratt seemed ready to bring out the big guns, "Right now they're trying to track down whose IP address it was. We got Jack Bauer on it,” he cracked.
Asked if she could imagine a future reconciliation with her former best friend Conrad, Montag told PEOPLE: "I mean, as far as right now, probably not, but time tells all, so we'll see."
As of Tuesday, a new message was posted on Montag's Web site that read: "Just wanted everyone to know that my blog got hacked last night and the hacker(s) posted up FAKE blog post about me admitting to spreading the rumors about the LC sex tape.
