If the rumor mill is to be believed, that outbreak of disease-causing bacteria isn't the only thing that's been festering in the shadows of the Playboy Mansion.
It seems while the cat's away (or at least taking advantage of the early bird special), the young-enough-to-be-his-granddaughter mouse will play, and the ever intrepid Life & Style reported that just last week, Hugh Hefner's 24-year-old bride to be was spotted canoodling with a young man at the Chateau Marmont.
As if that wasn't potentially scandalous enough, the magazine breathlessly reported that the young man Crystal Harris was not-so-platonically chillaxing with (unless you kiss all your friends on the shoulders and hold their hand?) was Jordan McGraw, the 24-year-old son of Dr. Phil. Huh?!
Could Crystal be saying goodbye to Mr. December in favor of a May-May relationship? Is Hef back on the singles market? More to the point, just three months out from her wedding date, is Crystal cheating on Hef?! Hang on to your bunny ears, because this rumor is…
What is true is that Harris was indeed seen hanging out with the younger, less follicle-challenged McGraw at the Hollywood hotspot on March 14, however—despite the word of a couple of the magazine's anonymous sources—there was no funny business taking place.
So what brought this platonic twosome together? Well, let's just say Madonna was right—music really does make the people come together.
McGraw, as it turns out, is a record producer (who until recently worked for Organica, a label from which he was let go after allegedly dating too many artists on the DL. But never you mind that, Hef). And Harris, as one might expect, is an aspiring pop star.
"They were out together, but with a group of people and they're all just friends," a Playboy rep assured E! News. "Crystal and Jordan are also working on music together, so they have a business relationship. Crystal has a song coming out in June."
Of course she does. Coincidentally, we're sure, June is also the month in which she's set to become Mrs. Hefner, as she'll stroll down the aisle on the 18th.
Hef himself later tweeted, "There is no truth to the gossip about Crystal & Dr. Phil's son in Life & Style magazine. Anything to sell a magazine."
