(Newser) – Crystal Harris called off her wedding to Hugh Hefner because things with the 85-year-old were "just happening too fast," and she decided, upon reflection, that the marriage wasn't what she wanted, she says. "I'd been having second thoughts about everything, so I haven't really been at peace with myself lately," the 25-year-old playmate told Ryan Seacrest. She says there was no fight between the two and they both agreed that getting married wasn't the best idea, People reports.

Harris says she isn't seeing anybody else and she's focusing on making an album. Multiple other sources say the split was less peaceful than Harris paints it—click here for a round-up. Harris appears on the cover of July's Playboy as "Mrs. Crystal Hefner," but Hefner says he plans a correction, Reuters reports. Subscription issues have already been posted but newsstand copies will have a big red cover sticker announcing: "Runaway Bride In This Issue!"
