Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris have reportedly called off their wedding, set for this Saturday, after the 25-year-old playmate packed her stuff and moved out in the wake of a weekend fight with her 85-year-old fiance.
‘The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart,’ Hefner tweeted around noon, confirming the news.
Awkwardly, while others might simply have to cancel the wedding photographer, Harris appears in a ‘Here comes the bride’ photo spread in the July issue of Playboy, accompanied by an article on why she and Hef ‘will live happily after.’
Hefner and Harris got engaged on Christmas Eve, almost a year after he’d asked girlfriends No. 2 and No. 3, twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon, to move out of the mansion so he could get more serious with Harris.
The Shannon twins, initially moved from the mansion to the Playboy House, were asked to leave the property completely in May. Seems Hef didn’t like his ex-girlfriends bringing their new boyfriends over to play.
[Updated, 2:45 p.m. June 14: This post has been updated to include Hefner’s confirmation that the wedding was nixed, which came shortly after the post was written but before it was published. The headline was changed to reflect that certainty.]
