Hugh Hefner

The Leak Screwed Us --

Releasing Lohan Issue EARLY

12/9/2011 2:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hugh Hefner has been screwed by the Internet .. and now the Playboy honcho has announced he's releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early ... after the entire spread was leaked on the web.

Hef just tweeted, "Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we're releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early."

As we previously reported, Playboy invested a TON of money into the Lohan edition -- and had printed thousands of extra copies in anticipation of unprecedented demand.

No new release date has been announced ... yet.

Instead of nude pictures of Lohan!---I'd rather see Pictures of the real Marilyn Monroe and She has been dead for 50 years!

REEKS of stunt - this is all to generate buzz for the release. It worked - look at how much online buzz has been generated about the cover. This "leak" was planned long ago.

Lindsay leaked them, famewh*re that she is. Staff and photographers have a vested interest, if they want to keep working, in making sure they aren't (and how many times have you ever seen a leaked Playboy cover before? Exactly.). And everyone at Playboy knows she did it.

Here's another rumor: these are the reject pictures, and were leaked on purpose, and the real pictures are coming out next week. Would explain why they aren't as good as was expected...

I think playboy was going for the classical look of the Monroe shoot and that is why the pictures are over lighted, but this isn't the 50's. I've seen paparazzi pictures of Lindsey with puffy nipples, at least they could of made her look excited sensually and not look so bland.

So you lost a couple million from exploiting a crackhead for her last sliver of fame? Guess youll have to comfort yourself by walking through your mansion and having the line of 12's take turns satisfying you. Hard to feel bad Hef.

Playboy is tired and old, just like Hef. Lindsay should have let a real erotic photographer taken the pics like Stephen J. Hicks of Digital Desires, because the only way anyone would have been happy with these pics is if she showed it all.

Her wig is crooked & her face is jacked. Couldn't they at least try to make her look somewhat attractive? Fail!

Man, it sucks that someone leaked this. Hefner gives a lot to charity and Playboy expected big revenue for the edition after the big pay-out. Whoever did it should be ashamed and held accountable. Hope the H.H. org. finds out who it was and TMZ tells us.

Hugh doesn't understand that porn is FREE on the internet now-he came from an age where he was one of the few selling what you could not see elsewhere-he is managing to stay afloat with 2 of the biggest loser dinosaur businesses about to be extinct right now-print and porn-people don't need it printed out and every arrogant twit college skankkk these days has FREE porn to spread around-it is making it really tough on the "true porn stars" to get enough money for their heroin habits and tattoos-maybe they will think twice about HOW they make their livings in the future-I think the only reason to look at this hag is to see how much collegen she shot in her lips before the photoshoot and how she looks nothing like herself-it's like Japanese anime porn
