Hugh Hefner Break Up? Scandalist.com published as early as on September 6 what the website itself called an exclusive gossip titled "Dumped By Holly, Hugh Hefner Seeks Girls Next Door Replacements?", speculating Holly Madison-Hugh Hefner's break up and believing she may have secretly being dated magician Criss Angel.

"Amid rumors that Hugh Hefner’s main squeeze Holly Madison has been hooking up with another major playboy (magician Criss Angel), a Playboy Mansion insider not only confirmed that the rumors are indeed true, but also exclusively told Scandalist that Holly is leaving him. “[Holly] told Hef that she is moving out of the mansion and breaking off their relationship,” said our source as we were hunting for gossip at MTV’s VMAs.” wrote the website.
Because Scandalist cited the Playboy Mansion insider as its source, the blog entry was wildly thought real and caused abuzz possibly among the whole celebrity blogosphere.

So if Hugh Hefner really broke up Holly Madison, his faviroate girlfriend? The answer is no, the 26-year-old clarified the rumor on her MySpace blog:
Random Rumor(s) of the week . . .
Hef and I are not getting married! It would not be a secret if I were engaged to anyone. There is a bad ass wedding coming up in Season 5 of Girls Next Door, but it's not mine! It was our friends' wedding that Bridget planned. I think it was one of the craziest weddings/receptions Vegas has ever seen. I loved the cut I saw of the episode (one of my all time faves) but they could not even show half of the stuff that went on that weekend!
I gotta admit, Bridget and I tried to get married while we were out there for the wedding . . . but you will have to tune in to see how that panned out! lol!
Addendum: Hef and I are not breaking up, either. We are PIC (Partners in Crime, lol, Kendra came up with that one). We are wrapping up Season 5 of the Girls Next Door and are looking forward to filming a Season 6.
