Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, 85, has accused his 25-year-old ex-fiancee of lying after she took a parting shot at him, saying they only had sex once and she was not turned on by him.

Crystal Harris, who called off the California nuptials with Hefner five days before the planned wedding in June, told radio show host Howard Stern this week that sex with the Playboy magazine mogul “lasted like two seconds” and that she had never seen him naked.

“Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don’t know why,” he tweeted late Tuesday, according to celebrity bible People magazine. The remark, which was re-tweeted by some fans, has since been removed from his account.

“Crystal convinced me that she adored me. That was the first lie,” Hefner said in response to a tweet from a fan. And he told another: “I feel sorry for Crystal. She seems lost.”

Harris also claimed that she and Hefner only had sex once in their two-year relationship, that she had never seen him naked and that Hefner was more into “couch cuddling and movie nights” than sex.

Hefner asked Harris to marry him during a party last Christmas Eve, and a wedding had been planned last month at Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, a luxurious Gothic-style mansion in Beverly Hills. But just days before, he tweeted: “The wedding is off,” adding” “Crystal has had a change of heart.”

At the time Harris did not explain why she dumped Hefner, except to say on her Twitter account that the decision came after “much deep reflection and thought” and that she continues to have the “utmost respect for Hef.”

On Wednesday, Hefner also sought to explain a comment he made after the wedding was called off, apparently voicing relief that he had not married Harris.

“When I said, ‘I missed a bullet’ when Crystal left, I didn’t mean I didn’t love her,” he said. “I meant that I realized she didn’t love me.” The wedding would have been Hefner’s third.

However, the founder of the adult entertainment empire has already moved on, announcing that his new girlfriend is Shera Bechard, a 27 year-old French Canadian model who was Playboy’s Miss November 2010.

“I’m happy to be in a better place with new girlfriends (Miss January 2011) Anna Sophia Berglund & Shera Bechard,” he tweeted, adding that he had won Tuesday evening’s game of dominoes at his Playboy Mansion home. [Photo via P.S. Zollo/Flickr; Story via Reuters]
