Crystal Harris and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner were set to get married two weeks ago, but the relationship would prematurely end when Harris told Hefner that she wanted out of the relationship. Now, in addition to our previous, in-depth report about a similar story, Harris is reportedly admitting that the relationship with Hefner was nothing more than a publicity stunt.
According to various sources, Harris is running so low on cash now that she ended her relationship with Hefner that she allegedly tried to sell her $90,000 engagement ring — which Hefner refused to take back after their relationship was done — to a San Diego jewelery shop, according to TMZ. After Harris apparently told the person she was talking to on the phone about who she was, and the person the other line expressed their regrets about the relationship falling through, she replied, “Are you kidding? It was all for publicity.”
However, it seems that Hefner himself has quickly distanced himself from his former beau and has moved on with Anna Sophia Berglund, a 27-year-old Canadian who will be November 2011’s Playmate.
