and Spencer Pratt
used to be close pals, as Zank was the reality star's bodyguard for ages. But Zank has been relieved of his post, along with the rest of Spencer's security team. What gives? Cougar Zank (Pacific Coast News)
According to Radar Online
, Pratt's "paranoia" is to blame. He reportedly got suspicious that Zank was having an affair with his now-estranged wife Heidi Montag
and let him go, even though he used to live in Speidi's home.
A source explained, "Somebody within the inner circle was tipping off a major Los Angeles based photographic agency about their whereabouts and Spencer could not figure out who it was. So, he just fired everybody to make sure the slate was clean, but the only problem was Zank sided with Heidi, and it looks like they are trying to broker deals on their own now."
Thus, Spencer has accused Heidi of seeing Zank on the side, and in turn, she has accused him of cheating on her, too. Ah, reality television.
