Crystal Hefner started out as a Playmate in the late 2000s and in 2012 became the wife of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, 60 years her senior. After his death in 2017, the 35-year-old went through a transformation.

After removing breast implants, she lost thousands of followers every day

Although the influencer initially lost thousands of followers every day as a result, her numbers are now increasing again.

That's what it's all about

  • Crystal Hefner, widow of “Playboy” founder Hugh Hefner, talks on Instagram about the consequences of her image change.

  • When she removed “everything artificial” from her body and no longer posted scantily clad photos, she lost thousands of followers every day.

  • However, she does not regret her change at all.

Crystal Hefner became world famous in the 2010s as the playmate and third wife of the 60-year-old “Playboy” founder Hugh Hefner. After his death in 2017, however, an image change followed. Now the 35-year-old influencer describes herself on Instagram as a “model who became a traveller, investor and health advocate”. In a comprehensive post, she now talks about the change she has gone through in recent years.

“I removed everything artificial from my body and deleted all my old photos. I'm more authentic, more vulnerable and feel like I belong more to myself. I belong to myself.” During this image change, however, she had to fear for her existence as an influencer, because she lost several thousand followers every day.

«I was in the red. Every day. I watched the women who had similar accounts keep posting the same scantily clad stuff and grow exponentially while my numbers went down,” Crystal says.

Crystal now has “an army of supporters”

The tide has now turned, however, and most days their numbers are increasing. “The female fans thwart the male fans. Now I really feel like I have an army of supporters who care about me and see a real soul behind the lens.” About her earlier life as a Playmate, she says: «I lived to make others happy and I suffered in the process.»

Crystal has also found new happiness when it comes to love. She is currently dating reality TV star Ryan Malaty (32). It's unclear how long the two have been in a relationship. However, the couple has been Instagram-official for around six months.
