Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was only a step away from marrying Playmate and girlfriend Crystal Harris, but the 25-year-old blonde changed her mind just a few days before the wedding. However, she attempted to return the engagement ring to Hef, but he said she could keep it. Just in case you were wondering, the price of the three-carat ring was approximately 90,000 dollars.
RadarOnline reports that “The Girls Next Door” star, Crystal Harris, tried to give her engagement ring back to Playboy magazine founder and editor-in-chief, after a failed attempt of tying the knot just a few days ago. But Hef wouldn’t want to hear it. He refused to receive it back.
Harris said it was never in her mind to keep the ring, because of the situation. She left Hef and she said that returning the engagement ring “was the right thing to do”. She stopped by the Playboy mansion in order to return Hef not only the ring, but also a dog, Charlie, and a Bentley. Hefner told her she could keep the ring and the car that he had previously given her.
According to their statements – Crystal’s and Hef’s – we can draw the conclusion that marriage was something that neither of them really wanted. On the one hand, Hef wanted to marry crystal because he thought it was what she wanted, but he could feel it wasn’t the right thing to do. “After all is said and done, staying single is probably the best. I think I just missed a bullet.” He wrote on his Twitter page.
On the other hand, Crystal gave more details on her having second thoughts about the wedding to Ryan Seacrest’s On-Air radio show, just a few days ago. She said that Hef’s lifestyle isn’t the most normal lifestyle and she didn’t fee she could get used to that kind of living. “This isn’t the lifestyle for me’– multiple girls around all the time and the Playboy lifestyle — I don’t know” she told Seacrest. It was all happening too fast for me, and I just sat back and thought about it all and if this was what I wanted. It wasn’t So calling of the wedding was the right thing to do.
Harris says she doesn’t worry too much about her ex fiancée, as he has “really close people around him all the time.”
