Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner is considering getting married to girlfriend Crystal Harris, 60 years his junior, despite previously insisting he didn't want to wed again.
Hefner, 83, admits he is happier than ever with 23-year-old girlfriend and hasn't ruled out making their union official, E! Online reported.
When asked about whether he would consider marriage, he said, "It's certainly possible. I certainly care enough for her. I certainly love her enough. We'll see. All I want is for the relationship to be as happy as it is. I'm having more fun than I did when I was 20."
It seems as if the media mogul, who has been married three times, has had change of heart as he previously vowed never to tie the knot again. "I haven't had a lot of luck with marriage. I don't have a good track record and I don't want to screw this one up," Hefner said.
He first started dating Crystal a year-and-a-half ago, while he was still in a relationship with 20-year-old twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon. However, in January he confirmed his romance with Crystal was "getting more serious" and asked his other lovers to move out of the Playboy Mansion into the neighbouring Playmate House
Long before Tiger Woods met Elin Nordegren, he "went out a few times" with singer LeAnn Rimes, it has emerged.
According to Us Weekly, the golfer, now 34, and the country singer, 27, were an item for a short duration of time.
"They hooked up and everything," a source said. "Tiger was really into her. He likes those blondes!"
The weekly claimed that the duo ended their romance after the singer's father disapproved of the pairing, saying their seven-year age difference was unacceptable, reports The New York Daily News.
"Then her dad almost had a heart attack," the source added. "And he made her stop seeing Tiger."
In 2002, Rimes tied the knot with former dancer Dean Sheremet, while Woods wed former Swedish model Elin in 2003.
Brendan Fevola of the Australian Football League (AFL) has had his name cleared over the Lara Bingle nude photo scandal.
"Given the evidence currently available to us and the time elapsed since the alleged behaviour, the AFL has not established that a breach of our rules has occurred," the Herald Sun quoted AFL football operations general manager Adrian Anderson, as saying.
He added: "However, we will continue to monitor whether there are legal proceedings arising from this matter and the AFL remains willing to speak with Ms Bingle."
It was alleged that Fevola snapped Bingle nude during their brief relationship in 2006 and distributed the pic to other AFL players.
According to Anderson, Fevola admitted taking the picture but its distribution could not be proved.
Anderson said: "The AFL does not condone any behaviour which shows a lack of respect towards women.
"All AFL players and officials should be aware that taking and distributing private images without consent is unacceptable and can result in sanctions under the AFL player rules."
LONDON: If sources are to be believed, then a series of calls and texts between Kings Cross nightclub baron John Ibrahim and Lara Bingle led to the model's split with Aussie cricketer vice-captain Michael Clarke.
According to sources, Clarke demanded his fiancee's phone records after he returned early from the Aussie tour of New Zealand - and was shocked with what he found.
"It was John Ibrahim's phone number. The phone calls and texts were at all times of the day and night," the Daily Telegraph quoted one insider as telling the New Idea magazine.
"(Clarke) wasn't at all happy that she was in contact with John - especially when he was away on tour," the insider added.
Ibrahim has reportedly been close to Bingle for years.
Friends insist they share a "special bond", with Bingle often visiting him in his Dover Heights mansion as well as his nightclubs.
Just when it looked like the controversy surrounding disgraced Pakistani fast bowler Mohammed Asif and his estranged girlfriend Veena Malik was over with both agreeing to settle issues, there has been a new twist to the story with Veena's ex-friend and actor Babbar Shah claiming to be her husband.
Shah claimed that he had married Veena, a famous television actress and model herself, two years ago and said that he has evidence to prove that he is legally married to her.
Shah told media persons that he was shocked to hear that Veena and Asif had married.
Shah said he had married Veena a couple of years ago in front of 22 people who were witness to the wedding.
"I have got concrete evidences and can show them at any time," The News quoted Shah, as saying.
"I can make striking revelations in connection with my marriage with Veena if I am forcefully implicated in this scandal any further but my family has advised me to keep this matter at an arm's length," he added.
Shah also provided some photographs and mobile clips to the media to prove his claims.
