He definitely moves quickly!
He definitely moves quickly!
Whether he saw it coming or not, Hugh Hefner is acting like a jilted groom.
Crystal Harris, who was Hugh’s fiance, called off their wedding just days before the ceremony. The July Playboy cover was released, and shows Crystal posing as Mrs. Crystal Hefner. Well, Hugh decided to have the last say – and ordered that each issue be slapped with a “Runaway Bride” sticker over her image.
Hefner, 85, Tweeted Wednesday that July’s Playboy cover featuring Harris, 25, will be affixed with a sticker that reads, “Runaway bride in this issue!” – following the model’s decision to back out of this Saturday’s wedding.
The cover jumped the gun by referring to Harris as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner.”
“Recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover. Look for it on newsstands,” Hefner writes.
Though he’s able to see a little humor in his situation, Hefner was clearly blindsided. “I didn’t see any of this coming, but I’m glad things went wrong before the marriage instead of after. Live & learn,” he says in another Tweet.
Meanwhile, friends have been consoling the Playboy founder. “Holly [Madison] came by to wish me well,” he writes. “The outpouring of support & affection from so many quarters is really touching.”
Harris told Ryan Seacrest Wednesday on his KIIS-FM radio show that she’d been having second thoughts about the wedding for a while. “I just sat back and thought about it all,” she said. “Is this what I wanted? And it wasn’t.”
Here is the Playboy cover that probably shouldn’t have been released!
Crystal Harris poses as Mrs. Hugh Hefner on the July cover – because they should have been getting married on Saturday!
Crystal told Ryan Seacrest this morning that she was the one who pulled the plug on the wedding, but that the Hef was relieved!
“I called it off because I didn’t think it was the right thing for me to do,” Harris told Seacrest this morning. “It was mutual between Hef and I, there was no fight, we sat down and we talked about it.”
According to Harris, while it may appear to be a sudden decision, the question mark had been hanging over her for quite some time.
“For a while I’ve been having second thoughts about everything. I haven’t really been at peace with myself lately. I didn’t think it was really fair to him…They were gonna air a show on it. It was al happening too fast for me.”
And she says that when she broke the news to Hef about not making good on that whole “til death do us part” thing, she said, “He understood. We both agreed that it wasn’t the best idea to get married.”
According to Crystal, for Hef, at least, that ship has sailed. When asked by Ryan if she thought Hef would ever make it down the aisle, she replied swiftly.
“No, he said he was just doing this wedding for me, he thought that’s what I wanted. We’re both relieved.
“I just feel that I owed it to Hef and everyone there to do the right thing and move on,” she said. So how’s her jilted ex fiancé handling this whole thing?
“Hef’s doing great,” she said. If nothing else, he certainly appears to have kept his sense of humor about himself, tweeting out that instead of getting married this Saturday, he’ll instead be watching the film Runaway Bride.
“He’s OK,” she went on. “Hef’s lifestyle isn’t the most normal lifestyle…That’s the thing, this isn’t the lifestyle for me, the multiple girls all around, it’s not the lifestyle I wanted.”
Either way, it’s probably a very good thing they didn’t get married. The Playboy cover is sure odd, though!
Just minutes ago, Hugh Hefner‘s ex-fiancée, Crystal Harris, tweeted a link to her personal website, which sends the public message stating:
After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef. I have the utmost respect for Hef and wish him the best going forward. I hope the media will give each of us the privacy we deserve during this time.
I wonder what her “deep reflection” was all about?

So Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris‘ engagement and wedding have been called off. In case you didn’t know, Life & Style magazine reported back in March that Crystal, while in a relationship with Hugh, had been dating Jordan McGraw, son of Phil McGraw aka Dr. Phil.
As Life & Style first reported in March, Crystal had been dating her songwriting partner and the son of Dr. Phil behind fiancé Hef’s back. Life & Style first spotted the 24-year-old lovebirds cozying up at the Chateau Marmont in LA on March 14. While Crystal attempted to keep their romance low-profile, Jordan didn’t care to hide his affections and was kissing her shoulder and trying to hold her hand – which was still adorned with her 6-carat engagement ring. The pair met through the Organica Music Group, where Jordan worked with Crystal as a songwriter.
Crystal and Hef, who got engaged in December, were only days away from their June 18 wedding date. “Crystal informed me of the news this morning and that the decision to call off the wedding was mutual,” Crystal’s manager, Michael Blakey, President of Organica Music Group, tells Life & Style. “The split was amicable and I’m happy to say that Crystal and Hef will remain close friends.”
And ironic that the son-of-a-psychologist-slash-family-counseling-TV-host would be a part of this Hollywood scandal relationship breakup!
What would Dr. Phil have to say?
And do you think this “engagement” was real in the first place? Or staged?
