It looks like running away from your engagement can have some pretty positive effect on your financial life — just ask Crystal Harris.
The former Playmate and Mrs. Hugh Hefner, who famously broke off the couple’s relationship just days before they were supposed to wed, only to change her mind later, is now sitting pretty in a new mansion purchased for her by her 87-year-old hubby.
TMZ reports that Hef, who currently shacks up with his bride at the Playboy Mansion, paid $5 million for a 5,900 square foot home in the Hollywood Hills where Crystal can live once Hugh makes the trip to the other side.
As it turns out, Hef is not the legal owner of the Playboy Mansion — he’s just renting. Playboy Enterprises owns the swanky pad, meaning that they could kick Crystal out at any point after Hugh dons his robe and slippers for the last time and shuffles off this mortal coil.
However, if the pair decide to exchange their “I dos” for “I don’ts” and divorce, Hef can buy her out of the house or fight her for it in court. Given Crystal’s past brushes with indecision, and Hef’s constant brushes with 19-year-olds, it’s a good thing the couple knows their options.
