Bruises 2011 Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair claims she suffered at the hands of Marston Hefner
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."

Hugh also released a comment on the situation ... saying, "If they care about each other, they'll patch it up." 

So, we gotta ask ...

She should date Hef instead of his punkazz son. Hef is 100 years old & too old & feeble to ever lay a hand on a woman.

That is the playmate of the year? Wow, I didn't see her naked but you can sure see how photoshop and airbrushing must have won her that gig. Not even remotely what I would say passes for drop dead gorgeous. And Hef says "if they care about each other they will patch it up"? How can the playmate of the year need to patch things up with a guy who beats her...guys are standing in line to date her.

I've bruised myself worse than that workin' out in the yard!!!! If women know they are in a violent relationship and stay in it, then they deserve what they get!!! I know that's mean, but it's the truth!

Maybe her boyfriend was mad that she screwed his Dad to get the title Playmate of the Year. Don't they all have to screw him to get that title? Listen up little Missy - the guy has a problem and the sooner you press charges and let him know you mean business the sooner you will heal mentally enough to get the hell away from him. They don't stop. They just don't. Once a punching bag always a punching bag.

Hugh is senile. So we shouldn't take the "patch it up" statement too seriously. He may not be fully aware of the injuries, especially if his son is the one feeding him the info about the situation.

Hefner's son is a punkazz POS. What does this young man have to be so angry about? Is he poor, broke, jobless, living in his car with no food?

This POS has lived a cush life, never had to work a day in his life. He's had everything giving to him...EVERYTHING, yet he feels entitled to beat up somebody smaller and weaker than he is.

This girl needs to run and not look back. Find a nice young man who will treat you like a princess...they are out there. Get out of L.A. It's a cesspool of low life POS who value money over anything and everything. This azzhole is probably not even embrassed in the least about what he has done.

Hid mama should be so proud that she has raised such a steller human being. You know, Trump's kids were all raised with a silver spoon and none of his son's have even done something like this. Trump is a blowhard but he knows how to raise kids.

Hef son = POS. However, SHE, like so many women, needs psychiatric help to avoid "needing" or "fearing the loss of" some screwed up jerk who would abuse her. Fix your incomplete childhood issues and improve your life'll probably life longer too!

She got PMOY by sleeping with hef's son and basically kissing up to Hef. Now it's backfired on her. Not saying she deserves what she got but to say she wasn't courting trouble is irresponsible. Hef treats women like crap and so don't be surprised if his son follows his example of feeling women are his to do with as he pleases. She will try soak up as much sympathy out of this without charging him. Trying to play a manipulative minx will only get you so far before you fall on your ass. Not saying what he did was right but it's really hard to garner sympathy when we all know she will play this for the pr coup that it is.

and yes she's not that attractive and trying to pass herself as some kind of nostalgic type pinup model like a kind of marilyn monroe/bettie page type. Her pmoy spread was not sexy or attractive.

"the Playboy heir has physically abused her on SEVERAL OCCASIONS ... but she's still willing to forgive the guy" WHAT A DUMB BROAD! TMZ PLEASE STOP REPORTING ON THIS AS THIS STUPID GIRL IS TELLING EVERYONE IT IS OK TO BE PHYSICALLY ABUSIVE IN A RELATIONSHIP. HARVEY DO YOU WANT YOUR DAUGHTER TO END UP LIKE THIS! No one deserves to be beaten by their sig. other, but in her case it may actually knock some sense into her head!

She should stick with him. Look what it did for Chris Browns career. Beating women is the new way to get more rich and famous.
