CHICAGO — Playboy is making a last-minute addition to the cover of its July issue after founder Hugh Hefner’s fiancee called off their wedding.
Chicago-based Playboy says it is affixing red and yellow stickers over the cover image of 24-year-old Crystal Harris. The stickers say, “Runaway Bride in this issue!” The 85-year-old Hefner announced Tuesday that the pair will not wed.
The issue is due on newsstands Friday.
Harris appears on the July cover wearing a sailor hat with the headline “America’s Princess introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner.” The pair were to be married Saturday at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
Hefner tweeted Wednesday that “recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover.”
A Playboy spokeswoman says the magazine is adding stickers to as many issues as possible.
