Access Hollywood reports that the owner of the Playboy Empire, Hugh Hefner, and his girlfriend, Crystal Harris, have called of the wedding. They both confirmed the news in Tuesday.
It appears that the blonde beauty wasn’t that sure about spending the rest of her life as Mrs. Hefner. So she changed her mind just a few days before the wedding, as Hef announced on his Twitter page: “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.”
Later that day, Crystal issued an official statement giving more details on the split:
“After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef,” she told the public. She also expressed her feelings and expectations on the matter:
“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.”
Michael Blakely, Crystal’s manager told the press that the couple has split amicably and that they will remain friends. He assured the press that the rumors according to which Jordan McGraw (Dr. Phil McGraw’s son) has something to do with the break-up, are “absolutely not true”.
Despite the “amicable” split, Hef’s heart is broken. On Tuesday evening he tweeted that he replaced his plans for the wedding day to others, more common. “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: ‘Runaway Bride.’ Seems appropriate.” He admitted that the breakup suffered is “a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage.”
It hasn’t been long since the couple announced the ceremony cancellation. Hef already had visitors who offered him a shoulder to cry on. One of the most supportive people was Bridget, one of the three stars of the reality TV show “Girls Next Door” filmed at the Playboy Mansion. “Bridget Marquardt came by to give me her loving support. Very dear” he wrote. Hef’s former girlfriend, Holly Madison sent her support via Twitter: “U r too sweet. Wish I was there to support, too.”
Hef and crystal announced their engagement in December last year. At that time, many people were amazed that he ended up a “one woman’s man” again, including former girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson. “We r comin over w some jack n coke… oh n a pipe lol” she wrote.
