Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, who was heartbroken after his former fiancee Crystal Harris called off their wedding plans at the eleventh-hour last month, has revealed that he felt conned by her as she never really loved him.
He however, insisted their relationship was ‘a pretty nice ride’ while it lasted.
"Obviously. Sure. Of course," the New York Post quoted him as telling CNN’s Piers Morgan when asked if he felt conned by Harris.
In his first TV interview since the split, Hefner told Morgan that he was not embarrassed about what had happened but had shed a few tears.
He also said he remains clueless as to the reasons why Harris cancelled their planned June wedding.
"I really don't know what happened but I think over time the rest of the story will come out," he said.
"There is more that we don''t know and at least one other guy in the picture ... [and] her career [as a singer] was clearly more important to her than she let on," he added.
Hefner said he had his first inkling something was not right when he and Harris took a trip to London together a few weeks before the planned wedding.
"Things did not seem to be quite they way they should be. Something was not right but I did not see it coming. I truly did not see it coming," he said.
He conceded the relationship with Harris "had run its course and she didn't really love me."
"She had indicated she wanted to get married, she was the one who said sooner rather than later," he added. "She seemed like the real deal."
