Hugh Hefner's break-up with fiancée Crystal Harris is turning messy as the former couple becomes embroiled in a bitter war-of-words over an interview the model gave to radio host Howard Stern.
The Playboy mogul was left heartbroken after the 25-year-old model called off their wedding plans at the last minute in June. The pair has so far managed to remain friends, with Hefner stating, "I think an argument could be made that she took me for a ride but I must say, quite frankly, it was a pretty nice ride. It was two and a half very good years."
But now the split has turned nasty, with Harris appearing on The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday to mock Hefner's sexual prowess.
She told the host that sex with the publishing boss lasted "like two seconds," before adding, "Then I was just over it. I was like, 'Ahhh.' I was over it. I just like, walked away. I'm not turned on by Hef, sorry. He doesn't really take off his clothes. I've never seen Hef naked."
Now Hefner has hit back at Harris' comments, branding the blonde a liar over her remarks.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, he writes, "Crystal did a crazy interview with Howard Stern today that didn't have much to do with reality. Is she trying to impress a new boyfriend? The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights. Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don't know why..."
"When I said, 'I missed a bullet' when Crystal left, I didn't mean I didn't love her. I meant I realized she really didn't love me... I feel sorry for Crystal. She seems lost. Crystal convinced me that she adored me.
"That was the first lie."
