Crystal Harris Dumps Hugh Hefner

On Christmas Day 2010, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner logged on to Twitter to announce his engagement to Crystal Harris. "When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears," he enthused. "This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory."

Six months on, and just days before the couple, aged 85 and 25 respectively, were to exchange vows, Hefner had less happy news for his 639,000 followers. "The wedding is off," he tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. "Crystal has had a change of heart."

Harris, a former Playboy Playmate of the Month, also went online to confirm that she would not, after all, become Hefner's third wife. "After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef," she wrote on her personal (and not-so-safe-for-work) website. "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."

Hefner, again on Twitter, denied suggestions there had been an angry argument: "The TMZ report that Crystal & I 'had a nasty argument', prompting her to call off the wedding, is untrue. There were no arguments."
As sympathy tweets flowed in from his followers, Hefner issued a number of other messages on the microblogging site. "The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage," he later tweeted. And: "Since we're not getting married on Saturday, I've scheduled a movie: Runaway Bride. Seems appropriate."
Hefner also retweeted, without comment, a remark by follower @LinzLuvs. It read: "Omg @CrystalHarris left @hughhefner the day her single came out on iTunes. Coincidence? I think not."
