The third time apparently won't be the charm for Hugh Hefner. The Playboy founder, married twice before, confirmed via Twitter that his 25-year-old fiancée Crystal Harris has called off the couple's impending wedding.
Back in February, Harris was announcing on "Piers Morgan Tonight" that she was all set to marry Hef on June 18. The Playboy Playmate gushed about the wedding details, noting that her best friend and her sisters were on board to be her bridesmaids. "It's going to be fun!" she told Morgan.
But perhaps the nuptials started to look less thrilling. A few days before the ceremony was scheduled to begin at the Playboy Mansion - and right around the time Funny Or Die released a video about the occasion – Harris seems to have opted out.
"The wedding is off," Hefner tweeted on Tuesday. "Crystal had a change of heart."
And over on her website, Harris explained, "After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef. 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."
As of now, Hef hasn't revealed any additional details on what happened with Harris, although a music manager for the one-time bride-to-be - who's apparently also a singer - told E! News that "it's very sad" but it was also "amicable."
