L.A.'s favorite octogenarian, Hugh Hefner, has confirmed via photographic evidence that he's back together with his one-time runaway bride, Crystal Harris. Hef tweeted a picture of himself with the 26-year-old blonde from yesterday's Fourth of July festivities at the Playboy Mansion.

Harris and Hefner, you'll of course recall, were engaged to be married in 2011. Harris broke off the engagement five days before the wedding, the timing of which conveniently coincided with the release of an issue of Playboy featuring her on the cover, allowing for just enough time to slap a bunch of "Runaway Bride" stickers on the magazine before it made its way to newsstands.

The couple had a difficult break-up, with Harris shit-talking Hef's ability to perform in the bedroom to Howard Stern, but that apparently didn't stop the Playboy founder from taking her back, which he did in June of this year.

It's a tangled web we weave.
