"I need to apologize to Heidi and my 11.5 fans," he Tweeted recently. "I'm an epic douche - and you deserve better."

Pratt, a 27-year-old Los Angeles socialite and the self-proclaimed villain of The Hills, which ended in July, has referred to himself by the term before. Montag has not yet responded publicly to his apology.

The reality star, who has also called himself a "famewhore," had in recent weeks bragged about having a sex tape of himself and 23-year-old Montag, although footage was never released. He also said he was planning to write a tell-all book about his relationship with Montag.

The couple married in 2009 and were often shown squabbling on The Hills. Pratt was depicted on the reality show as the person who alienated Montag from her on-screen friends, namely the series' main star, Lauren Conrad.

Montag and Pratt, who have broken up and gotten back together numerous times, on and off-camera, have often been said to have staged publicity stunts.

Montag filed for divorce from Pratt in July, amending a previous petition for legal separation submitted earlier in the year. He signed the papers on August 13 and their divorce is expected to be finalized on Feb. 14, 2011 - Valentine's Day.

"Divorce can be a trying, draining, and emotionally devastating experience for all involved," Pratt told People magazine. "Despite these hardships, most individuals manage to conduct themselves with dignity and maturity. I did not  I failed spectacularly. I horribly embarrassed the one person that meant the world to me. For my outrageous and infantile behavior, I offer Heidi my most sincere apologies."
