A day after news broke that Crystal Harris called off her wedding to Hugh Hefner, just 5 days before the ceremony, more details are now coming out on why Crystal chose to walk away.
According to a new report by TMZ, Crystal’s change of heart had a lot to do with money and her music career. Despite the incredible wealth of Hef, head and founder of Playboy, sources close to Crystal reveal she was only receiving a “couple hundred dollar” in weekly allowance.
Crystal was reportedly fed up with that amount and wanted to make her own money. Reason #2 was also her singing career. Crystal, who reportedly did not give a lot of input into the wedding planning, was solely focused on launching her music career even with her wedding just days away.
In fact, Crystal released her first single “Club Queen” just this week. Sources add that Crystal felt she “couldn’t be married to Hef and have a successful music career.”
And according to a report by RadarOnline, reason #3 has to do with Crystal’s ongoing
affair relationship with Jordan McGraw, 24-year-old son of Dr. Phil. News first broke back in April that Crystal was cheating on Hef with Jordan. Crystal denied the news back then but Radar reports the two are still seeing each other, and that is also part of the reason Crystal could not marry Hef.
“She has a boyfriend. She is seeing Dr. Phil’s son, Jordan. She thinks she is going to be living with all of Dr. Phil’s millions,” reveals a source. Interesting because former girlfriend of Hef, Kendra Wilkinson was also secretly dating her now husband Hank Baskett while she was still living in the Playboy mansion.
Crystal’s rep however released another statement yesterday once again denying any cheating on Crystal’s end, not that we would expect a rep to admit such a thing anyways. Crystal also went on the Ryan Seacrest radio show this morning stating that calling off the wedding was a mutual decision. “I called it off because I didn’t think it was the right thing for me to do,” she said, adding the decision “was mutual between Hef and I.”
Crystal added that she’s been having doubts for a while. “For a while, I’ve been having second thoughts about everything,” admitted Crystal. “I haven’t really been at peace with myself lately. I didn’t think it was really fair to him … it was all happening too fast for me … I just thought about it and [asked myself,] ‘Was this what I wanted?'”
As for Hef, he seems to be doing well considering all things. Below are some of his tweets from yesterday –
- “The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage.”
- “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: “Runaway Bride.” Seems appropriate.”
- “The TMZ report that Crystal & I “had a nasty argument,” prompting her to call off the wedding, is untrue. There were no arguments.”
Hef also stated that Crystal took their dog Charlie with her while he then retweeted this message late last night, “LinzLuvs Omg @CrystalHarris left @hughhefner the day her single came out on iTunes. Coincidence? I think not.”
And finally, it came out just moments ago that Crystal is gracing the latest July cover of Playboy magazine. The cover (pictured below) is titled “America’s Princess: Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner.” Awkwaaard!
