(Newser) – Poor Spencer Pratt just is not having a good week. First, the reality star’s wife fired him as her manager and replaced him with a psychic. Now it comes out that Pratt’s story about leaving The Hills to fight cyber crime is a lie. The truth? “He is leaving The Hills for six weeks because he was asked to,” a source tells Us. Pratt allegedly “flipped out” when a female producer asked him to do something, and she was so “rattled” she filed a complaint.

“He got so crazy that he screamed, 'I should kill you for even asking me to do that!'" the source says, adding that Pratt was almost kicked off—but “the show agreed that Spencer would leave The Hills for six weeks to do anger management training once a week at home. If he completes it, he can return.” One person, though—supposedly Pratt's new boss—says he's serious about cyber security. Click here for that interview.
