Did Hugh Hefner turn down Britney Spears for a Playboy photo spread?
"Extra" talked with Hef to set this wild rumor straight!
"All that stuff in the tabloids about my rejecting her, somebody else made up those stories," he insisted. "I have only heartfelt concern for her situation, and I hope her career gets back on track."
He added that he'd love to have Britney appear in the magazine as soon as she gets her personal life straightened out.
