Crystal Harris gives Hugh Hefner their dog, keeps engagement ring and Bentley
Crystal Harris might have left Hugh Hefner at the altar, but the Playboy mogul wasn't left empty-handed as his runaway bride gave back his beloved dog.
Harris, 25, visited the Playboy Mansion on Sunday to return the $90,000 3-carat diamond engagement ring and their dog, Charlie. Hefner was "thrilled" to get his Cavalier King Charles Spaniel back, but told Harris to keep the engagement ring and the Bentley he had given her, Us Weekly reports.
"Crystal brought Charlie back because she thinks he's happier here & I appreciate it, because I really missed him," Hefner Tweeted on June 19.
He also seemed to be moving on from the incident, telling a Twitter follower that he had "missed a bullet."
"It's the start of a new day, and a new week, and I'm happy to be single," Hefner wrote on Twitter on Monday.
Harris appears on the cover of the nude magazine's July issue. She and Hefner were supposed to marry on June 18. Harris said on Tuesday that she had decided to end their engagement. On Wednesday, she went on Ryan Seacrest's radio show to clear up rumors and talk about the real reasons she canceled the wedding.
"Hef's lifestyle isn't the most normal lifestyle," Harris said. "Multiple girls all around, it's not the lifestyle I wanted."
Hefner's ex-girlfriends have said in media reports and in books that the Playboy founder engages in group sex with Playmates regularly. He has not confirmed their stories.
Harris was spotted poolside in Las Vegas with reality star Heidi Montag over the weekend.
"@CrystalHarris I had so much fun dancing with you to the #worldpremier of #ClubQueen!" Montag Tweeted on Sunday, June 19, referring to the single "Club Queen" that Harris released on June 14, the day she announced that she had called off her wedding to the 85-year-old Playboy founder. "It's stuck in my head! Entertain me! LOL!"
Harris and Hefner became engaged in December 2010 and have been linked together for about two years. Hefner has been married twice before and Harris said that he was planning the wedding for her sake.
Hefner and his first wife, Mildred Williams, were married between 1949 and 1959 and are parents to Christie and David, who are in their 50s. He and his second wife, Playboy Playmate Kimberley Conrad wed in 1989 and divorced in March 2010. They have two sons - Marston, 21, and Cooper, 20.
Hefner said that Conrad and his ex-girlfriend Bridget Marquardt, who starred on his E! reality show "The Girls Next Door," had visited him following the break-up. Harris and Hefner's ex-girlfriends Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson have also appeared on the series.
Hefner wrote on Twitter that the special had been changed to a "runaway bride" theme and would air in July. Madison and Wilkinson from "The Girls Next Door" were present for the filming and "lending their emotional support," the mogul wrote on Tuesday.
