Broken-hearted or not, Hugh Hefner is having a little fun after getting jilted by fiancée Crystal Harris.

Hefner, 85, Tweeted Wednesday that July’s Playboy cover featuring Harris, 25, will be affixed with a sticker that reads, “Runaway bride in this issue!” – following the model’s decision to back out of this Saturday’s wedding.

The cover jumped the gun by referring to Harris as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner.”

“Recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover. Look for it on newsstands,” Hefner writes.

Though he’s able to see a little humor in his situation, Hefner was clearly blindsided. “I didn’t see any of this coming, but I’m glad things went wrong before the marriage instead of after. Live & learn,” he says in another Tweet.

Meanwhile, friends have been consoling the Playboy founder. “Holly [Madison] came by to wish me well,” he writes. “The outpouring of support & affection from so many quarters is really touching.”

Harris told Ryan Seacrest Wednesday on his KIIS-FM radio show that she’d been having second thoughts about the wedding for a while. “I just sat back and thought about it all,” she said. “Is this what I wanted? And it wasn’t.”
