The publishing giant recently saw Bieber's documentary 'Never Say Never' on Valentine's Day with fiancée Crystal Harris and said he would be happy to host the teen star, after Bieber reportedly requested a visit. "Today we got news that Justin and his father want to come to the Mansion," said Hefner to CNN's Piers Morgan.
After seeing the film, Hefner also tweeted, "When you do something special for your girl, like taking them to a Bieber movie, they never say never," and later said, " I got a tweet from Justin Bieber after mentioning his interest in visiting the Mansion to Piers Morgan on CNN the other night."
It's still not clear if the visit will take place after Bieber, who follows the mogul's Twitter account, responded to Hefner's comments via Facebook saying, "So Hugh Hefner says the girls have the fever ... interesting. I'm a teenage boy. Come on."
This isn't the first time Bieber has been annoyed by Playboy news directed at him. Last year, Bieber expressed his disgust at the rumors that Playboy offered his mother Patricia $50,000 to pose in the magazine, dismissing it via Twitter saying, "That rumor just grossed and wrded me out (sic) ... My mom is a moral woman. Let's just leave that one for what it is."
Hefner tweeted earlier this morning that Bieber's visit would be with an adult since minors are not allowed in the Mansion unescorted. "The Justin Bieber visit would be with family ... Teenagers don't visit the Mansion unescorted," said Hefner.
If the visit does happen, Bieber will go with his father Jeremy to meet Hef and the Playboy Bunnies, who are apparently really big fans. "I want to meet Justin Bieber," said Hefner's fiancee Harris during the interview. "I have Bieber fever. We all do, all the Playmates. We all want to meet him."
