Heidi Montag Can't Afford Bodyguard, Takes Up Martial Arts

| by

Heidi Montag is preparing to kick some ass - if she has to!

It seems times are hard on the boulevard for Heidi, who can no longer afford bodyguards. Admitting her and hubby Spencer Pratt are on the brink of bankruptcy, she's making some drastic lifestyle changes to cut down on expenses. She said:

"I can't afford security, so I practice self-defence and chain punching.

"I have spent millions on security in the last four years because I had to take care of the cost all on my own. It's crazy and it's hard, but life is not always fair.

"I have had to change my life. I can't afford to go out to the clubs anymore because the sort of protection I need can cost anywhere from five to 10 thousand dollars a night ... when you travel it's even worse, because you need to cover the guards' travel, food, lodging, etc., and pay them. That is actually where all my money went because safety is number one."


So instead Heidi has been practicing Wing Tsun, but doesn't feel fully confident in her fighting abilities. Heidi has been laying low and out of the limelight because she's afraid of travelling alone without her security. She told

"It is scary to be out there without protection, people do follow me and you can never be too careful."
