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 ...

That poor girl. She is in a dangerous situation and doesn't seem to realize that men who beat on women don't stop. She could be killed by this guy. Where are her parents?

I guess Playboy must be looking for women of the lowest common denominator to pose nude in their magazines now.

Claire-person, get out, while you still can...ALIVE.

There is no man rich enough, fine enough, or slinging it on you good enough, for you to accept even ONE beating and go back to him.

No man is perfect, but not EVERY man is a woman-beating, sonofabit@h and wh@remonger. Really, you could toss a rock in ANY crowd and hit a man better than THAT!

REALIST: YOUR COMMENT is ignorant. Yes, someone can be punched, kicked in the ribs and have no marks. The harm, actions still happened. From personal experience, once someone hits you, they will indeed do it again even if they say they wont, its a matter of time, one little anger fit. Drop this UGLY SKINNY UGLYYYYY MORON and go on to the next rich kid.

Claire - I doubt you will ever read this... but seriously once a man hits you it won't stop. It will get worse and he does need to be charged. Every abused woman seems to think that the man will change, it was somehow her fault and things will get better. My sister almost died at the hands of a man that continued to abuse her for five years. It doesnt stop it wont get better and your family will most likely have to literally drag your butt out to safety. Luckily for my sister it was not in a body bag and I pray for your sake you get out before its too late. Dont stay with an abuser!

Thats a olayboy model?? she looks like a child that belongs in a college classroom, learning about History, Math, Science, a second Language. You mothers and fathers that let your children do this and throw away the futures of becoming successfull in life, are trash!! That girl looks 15.

my question is why are they living in an apartment in Pasadena? I like Pasadena, but didn't know there was high rise apartments for the rich in Pasadena.

Also, if she never dated Hefners son then she would of never been named playmate of the year. Who names their son Marsten? isn't that like a name for the 1800's? or like 1904?

Wow..So, she says she doesn't condone violence? Thats Exactly what she does...Get beat, goes a beat dog.. ANd Hugh he must be NUTS, to think there is nothing wrong with this type of violence towards women. He must be an abuser himself. Verbal or Physical, its still abuse.
But, she is young and i am sure if, she goes back, she can loose her looks the next time. By getting her head bash in..
