Crystal Harris on Cover of Playboy as Mrs. Hugh Hefner, Report Says



Looks like the new Playboy magazine could be a collector's item.

Here's why.

Crystal Harris left her octogenarian fiance Hugh Hefner on Tuesday, five days before their wedding.

Unfortunately, magazines have a pretty long lead time, so the July Playboy, which was to hit newsstands the weekend of their wedding, is already in the trucks.

It's coverline, according to the New York Post?

Not only that, the Lifetime cable network was set to film the wedding for a TV special that has now been scuttled. But there, Hefner may have come out ahead, because the New York Post also reports that Harris was going to leave Hefner at the altar, as the cameras were running, in order to get a big payday when she sold her story to the tabloids.

The report said she was looking for a $500,000 check, but wasn't having any luck.

"Crystal wanted to ditch Hef at the altar. Her plan was to walk up the aisle and say she couldn't go through with it," a source told the paper. "The wedding was to be filmed for a reality special, and her refusal to marry him would be a sensation. She was looking for a tie-in deal of around $500,000 for the exclusive 'I ditched Hef at the altar' interview. While there was interest, Crystal didn't get an offer anywhere near half a million."

Harris was also rumored to be having an affair with Dr. Phil McGraw's son, Jordan, but her manager, Michael Blakey, said those reports were "absolutely incorrect."

Hefner tweeted on Tuesday that "The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart."

The two had been dating since 2009, when Hefner, 85, took up with Harris and a pair of identical, 19-year-old twins.
