Spencer Pratt says he was lying when he told Lauren Conrad he started the rumors of a sex tape featuring the departing "Hills" star — and he did so just to get LC to come to his wedding.

Late last month, Lauren told a panel of festival goers and journalists that during the current season of the MTV docu-drama, Spencer finally took responsibility for starting the sex tape gossip, which spread like a wild fire several years ago.

But in a new interview with AccessHollywood.com, Spencer claims that he only told LC he started the rumor to fulfill his blushing bride — Heidi Montag's -- wedding guest list wishes.

"Let me give you the exclusive right here… See, my lovely wife wanted that girl, LC, to be at our wedding, and I knew I had to do whatever as [an] almost-husband to get her dream wedding put together," Spencer told AccessHollywood.com earlier this week. "So I lied and said that I made something up to make somebody feel good about themselves so that they would attend the wedding."

Spencer said he lied about starting the rumor because it was the noble thing for a married-man-to-be to do for his bride, but he also insisted a tape, which LC has repeatedly denied, exists.

"That's what a husband should do for a wife… Do anything at all costs to make them have their dream wedding," he said. "[But] yes, you did have that tape and yes, [your ex-boyfriend] was trying to sell it. Thank you for coming to the wedding. Love ya. Mwah!"

As for Heidi, she explained that she wanted her former best friend-turned-enemy-turned-friend at her April wedding in Pasadena, Calif. for closure because Lauren is departing "The Hills" at the end of the current season.

"I just felt like it was a good time for her to come and for everybody to put the past behind us and to finally close those doors and to move on in a better, positive direction and on a fresh page," Heidi said. "I just wanted everyone to be there and especially because she's not on the show any more, I would love for her to be there and a part of it."

But while Lauren turned up, as did Audrina Patridge, Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner and several hundred guests, none of them ponied up for wedding gifts.

"I didn't get anything," Heidi said.

When informed that wedding guests traditionally have a year to gift the new bride and groom, Spencer said he'll be checking his mail.

"Is that the rule?" he asked. "I'm waiting for like 400 gifts from everybody because I didn't receive a wedding gift."

"I think maybe we got one," Heidi added.
