Add this to the list of things Heidi Montag is doing to stay relevant in the wake of The Hills‘ cancellation: she is considering pressing charges against the show’s creator, Adam DiVello, for inappropriate sexual behavior.
Montag claims that after she got her plastic surgeries, DiVello groped her newly scooped-out back and plumped-up ass. Meanwhile, Lauren Conrad says that Heidi’s accusations are false, telling Us magazine “I am in utter shock at the allegations made against Adam DiVello. Not only are they completely absurd, but they are 100 percent without merit. Adam is a true professional and a wonderful person to work for.”
A source told Perez Hilton that “tension on the set of The Hills has truly escalated in the last few weeks and Spencer and Heidi are very close to bringing legal action against the show,” as a result of the inappropriate behavior toward Heidi. DiVello’s unwanted touching is the reason she has started traveling with an entourage of security lately. The source, clearly someone from Team Heidi and not a neutral party, also said “Adam can get away with that with the Audrinas and Kristins of reality TV but not with Heidi! He is a pervert and a creep. The other girls dont feel they can’t defend themselves because they are afraid they will lose their job if they talk about the man’s workplace behavior. Heidi will not tolerate sexual assault in the workplace!” Not to diminish the point, but, um, they’ve already lost their jobs, right? This kind of behavior though IS creepy and unacceptable, but no charges have officially been filed against DiVello, and MTV spokesperson told Us “We have looked into this matter and the allegations made against Adam DiVello are completely false and without merit.” [Photo: Getty Images]
