He may be rich, famous and eccentric, but no one can accuse Hugh Hefner of not loving his animals. He and his fiance have split, and now Hef and Crystal are in a custody battle over their puppy. Dahvi Shira at People Magazine reports on their fight over Fido in the article below.
Hef & Crystal in a Custody Battle over Their Puppy
Shortly after Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris ended their engagement in June, the Playboy mogul said Harris let him keep Charlie, their shared Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
But now, Hefner, 85, says he and his former fiance, 25, are still going back and forth about who gets permanent ownership of the pooch.
“We both love the puppy,” Hefner told PEOPLE on Thursday at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. “I told her if she wants to keep the ring and the Bentley, then maybe I can keep the puppy. I [hope] we will work it out.”
Hefner, who still insists he “missed a bullet” by not tying the knot with Harris – who was linked to Dr. Phil’s son right after the split – points out, “The puppy’s valuable, but not $100,000 worth.”
