Playboy Bunny Karissa Shannon made an explosive statement, saying that she was “disgusted” when she found out that she was “carrying the devil’s child.” The model just wanted to have an abortion after she found out that she was pregnant with Hugh Hefner’s child.
She moved in into the Playboy mansion in 2008 with Hefner, a controversial magazine publisher, with her twin sister Kristina, after being lured by him, The Sun says. The following year, Shannon found out that she was pregnant after going through a series of blood tests. She was reportedly terrified that Hefner would find out that he had impregnated her.
She was afraid of what the world would think about the six-decade age difference between the two. “I just wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible. I didn’t want Hef to find out and he never did,” Shannon spoke about how she was desperate to get an abortion, “It was like the devil was inside of me. I didn’t want anyone to know I was carrying an 83-year-old man’s child.”
