Crystal Harris calls off wedding, as Hugh Hefner tweets to let fans know how he’s doing

He may have had a menagerie of bunnies to choose from, but the one he picked has hopped away.

Playmate Crystal Harris called off her wedding to “Playboy” playboy Hugh Hefner just days before the two were set to say “I do.”

Hefner confirmed the news in a short, yet very sad tweet: “The wedding is off. Crystal had a change of heart.”

Now the 85-year-old is using Twitter to let his fans know how he’s doing post-split.

“The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage,” Hefner tweeted shortly after the news was announced. In a classy move, Hefner wished Harris and her new single, “Club Queen,” success.

(Of course later, he later re-tweeted another Twitter user’s accusation: “Omg @CrystalHarrisleft @hughhefner the day her single came out on iTunes. Coincidence? I think not.”)

He did manage to get in a little dig at his ex: “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I've scheduled a movie: ‘Runaway Bride.’ Seems appropriate.”

Still, he’s hurting: “Crystal took Charlie [the dog] with her when she left & I really miss him.”

Don’t worry, Twitter readers, he’s getting support from ex-wife Kim Conrad and ex-girlfriend Bridget Marquardt, who Hef said stopped by the mansion.

He’s also fact-checking articles written about the breakup, correcting the ages of his youngest children for @UrbanfirlnLA and Us Weekly. Hefner also denied the TMZ report that the couple had a “nasty argument” that led to the wedding being canceled.
