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.
