Heidi Montag's husband has a new goal

Spencer Pratt claims he is leaving The Hills – to fight cyber crime.

Heidi Montag‘s husband, who is studying software engineering, says he’s joining the American Defense Enterprises computer security division.

‘In the last few months I have discovered a new passion and new purpose to my life,’ Spencer, 26, tells People.

‘Upon learning of President Barack Obama‘s declaration that the “cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation,” I have decided to refocus my energy and devote my full resources to helping America face this and other unprecedented challenges.

‘My new mission is this: To do my part in maintaining the technological superiority of the US military and prevent emerging technologies from threatening our nation’s security.
 
‘With this in mind, I have decided to take a break from my obligations to MTV‘s The Hills and discontinue filming any more episodes for this current season.’

Spencer‘s announcement follows 23-year-old Heidi‘s decision to replace him as her manager with a psychic named Aiden Chase.
