Reports are running rampant that Hugh Hefner’s son, Marston Hefner was arrested on Sunday and is under investigation for claims of domestic violence against his girlfriend Claire Sinclair. Marston is just 21 was arrested without incident on Sunday night and later released on $20,000 bail. I’ve learned that Claire suffered minor injuries, and she appeared to raise the incident on Twitter. Hugh has had a strange reaction too… he thinks they can “patch it up.” Hmm..
This pic of Marston and Claire was taken last June. Claire was named Playmate Of The year 2011. The two have reportedly had an on and off again relationship since 2010, but have been living together for a few months in Pasadena.
TMZ has reported that Claire called 911 on the weekend claiming Marston had attacked her and when cops arrived at the house, there were visible injuries, bruises and red marks on Claire’s body. Marston admitted that they had gotten into an argument but that he didn’t physically attack Claire. Ugh!
Claire’s remarks on Twitter yesterday are seemingly pointing to the incident… she wrote, “There’s two types of pain in the world – pain that hurts you, and pain that makes you stronger…All of your positivity is giving me strength.”
Is she suggesting that she endured both kinds of pain, and that this will make her stronger? It’s not clear and of course like anything really, there will be multiple sides to the story and various shades of gray.
Last year Hugh celebrated his 85th birthday with his son, Marston, who turned 21. They have a strangely close and yet odd relationship. Hugh isn’t your regular 85 year old, but he has had a strange reaction to the news.. He said, “If they care about each other, they’ll patch it up.” Regardless of what actually went down that Pasadena pad, I don’t think this is a case for “patching up.” Sounds like to me they need to go their separate ways. Now.
UPDATE: Claire Sinclair has relased a photo of the injuries she says she suffered at the hands of Marston Hefner over the weekend:
You’re looking at the bruising damage 2011 Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair claims she suffered at the hands of Hugh Hefner’s son during a violent rampage this weekend. TMZ broke the story … 21-year-old Marston Hefner was arrested Sunday night after allegedly kicking and punching Sinclair during an argument in their Pasadena, CA apartment. Now, 20-year-old Sinclair tells us … the Playboy heir has physically abused her on SEVERAL OCCASIONS … but she’s still willing to forgive the guy. “I don’t condone domestic violence, but if one ounce of good can come from this bad experience, then I can live with it and move on” … Claire says. “That is why I will not press charges against Marston Hefner if he keeps his word to give a public apology for physically abusing me on several occasions, and seeks psychiatric help for his anger issues.”
It remains to be seen if any good can actually come from this assault allegation … but, yes, I agree that AT THE VERY LEAST Marston Hefner needs psychiatric and anger management treatment.
