Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris have called off their wedding. The Playboy owner tweeted, “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.” Her rep says “The breakup was amicable. Crystal will now be focusing on her music career and her new single Club Queen.” However sources say that Hef was in shock. Harris packed up and left the Playboy Mansion Sunday night.
And the source says the real reason for the split is she is now dating Dr. Phil’s son Jordan McGraw. According to the NY Post,Hugh Hefner’s wedding to Crystal Harris was called off after she secretly planned to ditch the Playboy mogul at the altar in return for a $500,000 media deal. Harris was said to be shopping a deal for a tell all after she ditched Hef in front of 300 guests at their wedding at the Playboy Mansion on Saturday– to be filmed for a Lifetime TV special. Harris had reportedly been secretly seeing Dr. Phil McGraw’s son, Jordan, for months behind Hef’s back. Jordan is her songwriting partner, and they were seen cozying up at the Chateau Marmont in March.
A source says, “Crystal wanted to ditch Hef at the altar. Her plan was to walk up the aisle and say she couldn’t go through with it. The wedding was to be filmed for a reality special, and her refusal to marry him would be a sensation. She was looking for a tie-in deal of around $500,000 for the exclusive ‘I ditched Hef at the altar’ interview.
While there was interest, Crystal didn’t get an offer anywhere near half a million.” It is not known if the Sunday argument was sparked by Hef finding out about her plan to humiliate him. But Harris’ manager, Michael Blakey, insists reports about her cheating with Jordan were “absolutely incorrect” and “total fiction.” Of her plan to ditch Hef in return for a lucrative media deal, he said that was “not true, to my knowledge.” He said of their split, “I have no idea what happened. All I know is that it was an amicable breakup.” The cancellation is lousy timing for Playboy its July issue hits newsstands Friday, with Crystal on the cover. The cover line, according to sources, is “America’s Princess: Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner.”
