MISSING Heidi Planck argued with her boyfriend before disappearing and he thought she was "ghosting him", according to her ex-husband.
The mom-of-one, 39, disappeared after suddenly leaving her son's football game on October 17 where loved ones say she appeared "edgy" and "angsty".
Ex-husband Jim Wayne, 63, reported Heidi missing after she failed to pick up their son from school three days later.
He told The Sun Heidi had an argument with the man she had been dating in the week before her disappearance – but insisted her new beau is a "great guy."
Wayne, who runs a beauty salon to the stars in Beverly Hills, said: “They had been in an argument the week before so he didn't know anything about her disappearance.
“He thought she was just ghosting him. He had no idea.
“He said that they got into an argument because he lives in San Francisco and she wanted him to come down but he couldn’t because he had to work."
But Jim insists Heidi's new man is a "great guy", adding: "I don’t have any worries about him, he’s a great guy."
He added: “I'm no detective for sure, but he seems like a really great guy.
“As I said, I'm not a detective, but I can pretty much assure you that that’s not it.”
Jim explained that he is acting as the “lead contact” for the police and Heidi’s friends through the ordeal.
Asked to describe Heidi, Jim said: “She’s a great worker and a great mom.
“We have totally different parenting styles, I’m a very strict dad. This is not my first rodeo, I’ve got two older kids.
“Our son is Heidi’s only child and she is a bit more relaxed in her parenting style.
“We were married for a couple of years but had been with each other for four years. We divorced nine years ago."
Heidi was captured on security footage leaving her home with her dog in her gray 2017 Range Rover on October 17.
That dog was found later that day on the 28th floor of a high-rise building in downtown LA – 12 miles from her home in Downey, California.
But it was not until three days later that Heidi was reported missing by her ex-husband Jim after failing to pick up their 10-year-old son from school.
Her car remains missing, according to local reports, after her laptop and phone were found at her home during a wellness check on October 20.
Then on October 29, FBI agents raided her home, allegedly leaving with files; they had been expecting to find a crime scene there, according to local reports.
That came after it emerged Heidi's boss was under federal securities investigation for possible fraud charges, according to local reports.
'SOMETHING OUT OF PLACE'
Planck's friends posted flyers in LA on Saturday near to where her dog was found wandering an apartment building.
Los Angeles Police Department Detectives have not said how Planck is connected to the complex.
Jarrod Burguan, a retired San Bernardino police chief, said: "People are very, very attached to their pets, and their pets do not just go missing.
"There clearly is something out of place here."
One friend told CBS: "It seems to us that everything stems from that building where her dog was found."
