Hugh Hefner Crystal Harris. The former Playboy Playmate announced her engagement to Hefner in December 2010 but later called off the marriage in June 2011 just days before the scheduled ceremony, citing a "change of heart".

Talking to Dr Drew Pinsky for Extra, Harris has since slammed accusations that she only became involved with Hefner for his money, insisting that she was not interested in the financial aspect of their relationship.

"If I was what people think I am, I would have stuck it out for another year. I was to get a gift of $800,000 (£486,000) the day after my wedding and $500,000 (£304,000) tax free every year after," the 25-year-old explained.

"I turned it down, walked away. I left because I realised money was not the most important thing in life."

Harris also said that she was "kind of broken" and "looking for a safe haven" upon meeting Hefner, due to abandonment issues stemming from the death of her father and childhood boyfriend, and claimed that Hefner made her feel like she was "somebody special" when he proposed to her.

Hefner has said that he "dodged a bullet" by not marrying Harris. He is currently dating Shera Bechard.

Hugh Hefner Crystal Harris break up five days before wedding. Hugh Hefner's runaway bride Crystal Harris insisted she does not regret 'a thing' about secretly walking out on the Playboy mogul just days before their wedding.

Meanwhile, the magazine magnate said he still doesn’t know whether the wannabe-singer had 'dishonest' motives to be with him.

In Hef's Runaway Bride, shown on US television last night, viewers got a revealing behind the scenes look at the run-up to last month's wedding to 25-year-old Crystal Harris that never was.

It includes various awkward moments, in hindsight, as doubts are clear in Crystal's mind while the romantic Hefner makes plans for their future.

Crystal complains she had no life of her own being with Hefner, that there 'were always women around' and that she felt 'closed in' by the pressure of the wedding.

Meanwhile, Hefner comes across as a broken hearted romantic.

At the end of the show, his ex-girlfriends Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson come to support him and say he 'dodged a bullet'.

"I would agree with you," he replies, unconvincingly.

Jason Mraz Tristan Prettyman on and off since 2006 split. op singer Jason Mraz has told reporters that he has called off his engagement to fellow singer Tristan Prettyman. The pair got engaged last December but during an interview with The Daily Beast, Jason revealed that the two have realized that the relationship will not work.

The 33-year-old said he feels sad following the split. He said that, “My greatest mistake right now is, I’ve been clinging to my art. In that, I have victory for my art and a great loss for my heart. At the moment, my beautiful fiancée is no longer my beautiful fiancée.”

According to him the relationship was going on because he was the only person who wanted it to work. He revealed that it is not possible for one person to make a relationship work. He believes that his commitment was the reason why the relationship was still working saying he became “less of a man” in the process.

Jason is still a good friend to Tristan saying that the two go to yoga classes together. The “I’m Yours” hitmaker admitted at a point in the interview that he will need to heal himself after the experience with Tristan.

The relationship between Jason and Tristan was at best described as rocky.

Lady Gaga and Luc Carl break up on and off. It looks like Lady Gaga and her boyfriend, Luc Carl, have called it quits. During an interview last Friday, Gaga answered some questions that lead us to believe the ‘Bad Romance’ between the the 25-year-old pop diva and the 30-year-old drummer has ended.

Gaga spoke on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ about relationships, and one comment definitely makes us think that Gaga and Carl are no longer an item. “No, I don’t have a boyfriend and haven’t been on any dates recently,” Gaga says.

She then started referring to her romance with Carl in the past tense, saying, “That relationship really shaped me. I sort of resolved that if you can’t have the guy of your dreams, there are so many other ways to give love.”

Carl and Gaga met in a bar in New York City in 2005 before she hit it big with her breakout song, ‘Just Dance.’ Their relationship has been a roller coaster ride ever since, with rumors about engagements and break ups constantly circulating throughout the media.

Gaga is all about positive thinking, and from the sounds of her comments, we think the ‘Judas’ singer will be just fine. Carl, on the other hand, doesn’t sound like he is doing as well. A few days ago, he tweeted the message “I miss you” along with Bob Seger’s song, ‘Still the Same,’ which is about a lover seeing past all of the negative things that come along with fame.

Maybe the former couple can listen to some of our picks for the best break up songs to help get their hearts on the mend.

In a joint statement, the couple said, "This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us."

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Alex Beh breakup less than a year. Jennifer Love Hewitt and her boyfriend of less than a year have split. "They haven't been dating for a little while," the 31-year-old’s rep tells Us Weekly.

“She’s doing well,” a close friend of the Ghost Whisperer actress said.

Hewitt and actor-director Alex Beh began dating in July 2010, four months after the actress parted ways with Jamie Kennedy who also costars on Ghost Whisper.

Last fall, Hewitt gushed over her new beau, calling him an “old fashioned” gentleman, reports People.

In January, the actress told Ellen DeGeneres that she’s already picked out three Tiffany engagement rings.

"I actually have three because I feel like I'm doing the guy a favor. I feel like I don't want to be upset if he picks a bad ring,” Hewitt said.

A month later the actress reported that Beh “buys me flowers everyday. Ever since we met. Every single day, I’m serious! He’ll either give me a bouquet or handpick one. So Sweet!”

+Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger less than two years. Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger have reached their limit. After less than two years together, the couple have split, multiple sources confirm to UsMagazine.com. Reps for both Cooper and Zellweger had no comment.

Justin Timberlake Jessica Biel split four years. Break-up rumors would reignite for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel once he started doing publicity rounds for this summer’s Bad Teacher. So I actually felt kinda guilty this morning when I heard the news that the couple of four years has, in fact, officially split. Sorry guys — I hope I won’t suffer any karmic retribution for my negative prophecy!

Here’s the official statement from their reps: “Addressing the media speculation regarding Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s relationship, we are confirming that they mutually have decided to part ways. The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.”

Justin and Jessica had been together since 2007, but their relationship was always a bit rocky, if you believe the celebrity rags. And things appeared especially strained recently — according to fellow revelers, they barely spoke at Vanity Fair‘s Oscar bash a few weeks ago. The A-Team actress and her multi-hyphenate beau have broken up and gotten back together before, however, so maybe this isn’t the last we’ll see of them. But my gut, which has clearly been right lately, is telling me that this is truly the end for the couple, and that JT is going to move on to a series of high-profile flings right quick. Supposedly he’s quite smitten with his Friends With Benefits (out July 22) co-star, Black Swan actress Mila Kunis.

I know we’ve got some celeb gossip hounds out there! How quickly do you think both Jessica and Justin will move on… and with whom will they start canoodling next?

+Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene "less than a year". Stick a fork in ‘em! Pop singer Joe Jonas and Twilight stunner Ashley Greene — who have reportedly been shacking up together in the actress’ Los Angeles apartment since the fall — recently called it quits after less than a year of dating, celebrity informants blabbed to The New York Post’s Page Six Column Thursday.

“It was mutual and amicable,” says an insider, who believes the twosome with an affinity for public displays of affection “drifted apart” due to their heavy work schedules.

The crooner was certainly singing a different tune when quizzed about his romance with Greene in an interview with the April issue of Details Magazine, which hit newsstands just this week.

Go figure…

The actor-musician has been romantically-linked to Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato said the thing he liked most about Ashley was her ability to put his “feelings first.” Jonas claimed to appreciate what he had with the brunette beauty because he’d had his heart broken by a famous girl in the past. (*Cough* Camille Belle *Cough*)

“I won’t say her name, but I was in a relationship, and we tried to work things out, and she, you know – I was really upset because she – she broke up with me. I think what works about it with [Ashley] is she really puts my feelings first. She understands my busy schedule. She’ll fly out to my shows – she’s been to places in South America that I can’t even pronounce…”

+ryan reynolds scarlett johansson two years of marriage. Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson have called it quits after more than two years of marriage.

If reports are to be believed, then Scarlett, 26, was the one who initiated the separation.

In a statement, Ryan, 34, and Scarlett said: "After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated," reports the Daily Mail.

The couple got engaged in May 2008 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Vancouver, Canada, that September.

The stress of being apart was too much for Scarlett to take, and she ended the marriage two weeks ago. according to Us weekly magazine source.

"They are being very civil about it. The big problem with their relationship is the distance. They spent a lot of time apart when they are working... She's been unhappy for a while," the source said.

Al and Tipper Gore split 40 years. They were the happy exceptions — high-school sweethearts whose passionate romance led to a famously stable marriage in a capital perpetually rocked by tawdry scandals and sleazy affairs.

But on Tuesday, less than a month after they marked their 40th wedding anniversary, former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, announced they were breaking up.

The couple, who have four grown children, disclosed the news in a brief e-mail to friends and supporters. Gore, 61, and his wife, 62, gave no hint of whatever hidden turmoil might have caused their union to crumble.

"We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate," the e-mail said. "This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

Longtime friends seemed stunned and saddened. A couple that had lived much of their lives in the public eye apparently had kept their heartbreak quiet.

A family friend in Nashville, Tenn., said he was "as surprised as everyone else."

A close confidant who said he'd spoken recently with both Gores dismissed the inevitable speculation about infidelity.

"There's nothing to that," he said. "Nothing whatsoever."

Henry Howard, the Gores' next-door neighbor in upscale Arlington, Va., said the couple led busy but often separate lives. He said they rarely seemed to appear together at their Tudor-style home outside Washington.

"Usually one would come at a time," Howard said. "Tipper was there more over the last couple years and then Al would come in between trips."

Gore was vice president to Bill Clinton from 1992 to 2000. His pursed-lips propriety and seemingly rock-steady marriage stood in sharp contrast to a president whose sexual affair with a White House intern led to a national scandal and impeachment.
