The Wedding is Off – Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris
Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris announced their engagement at the end of last year. Hugh Hefner has confirmed: he and Crystal Harris will not marry this Saturday as planned. According to Life & Style reports that another man, Crystal’s songwriting partner Jordan McGraw, came between Crystal and Hef. The magazine first spotted Crystal and Jordan, who is Dr. Phil’s son, getting cozy at the Chateau Marmont in March. Crystal denies the relationship is romantic.
“The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart,” he tweeted on Tuesday, which was scheduled for Saturday at the Playboy Mansion. More than 300 people were set to attend the nuptials.
Meanwhile Crystal’s camp claims the decision was mutual. “After much deep reflection and thought, I have decided to end my engagement with Hef,” Harris said in a statement. “I have the utmost respect for Hef and wish him the best going forward.”
“It’s very sad,” her music manager Michael Blakey told E! News. “It was amicable.”
TMZ broke the news of the canceled event this morning, alleging that 25-year-old Harris and the businessman “had a nasty argument this weekend on the phone.”
“Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve schedule a movie: Runaway Bride,” Hefner, 85, Tweeted Tuesday night, just hours after news broke that his bride-to-be Crystal Harris, 25, had a change of heart about their upcoming nuptials. “Seems appropriate.”
“The breakup is a heart breaker,” he continued, “but better now than after the marriage.”

By Hefner’s side through the heartbreak: ex-girlfriend and former Girls Next Door star Bridget Marquardt, ex-wife Kimberly Conrad – whom he divorced in 2009 – and Conrad’s mother.
Even Kendra Wilkinson Tweeted her support for her ex-boyfriend. And Holly Madison, who openly clashed with Harris, joined in: “Wish I was there to support, too!”
This would have been Hefner’s third marriage. The “Girls Next Door” cast member broke ties with his second wife, Kimberley Conrad. He ended things with first wife, Mildred Williams, in 1959.
Former “Girls Next Door” star Holly Madison, who had a long-term relationship with Hefner, loved him for years but dumped him in 2008 because he said he wasn’t interested in settling down with her or marrying again.
