PLAYBOY MAGAZINE FOUNDER, HUGH HEFNER DIES AT 91
Hugh Hefner, founder of the famous Playboy magazine and
Media giant is dead. He died on Wednesday at his home, the Playboy Mansion, in Holmby Hill area of Los Angeles. He was 91.
Playboy says Hugh died peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones.
Hefner’s health had been in serious decline over the last year and he’s not been seen in public for some time. His passing comes just over a year after his brother, Keith, died battling with cancer.
Playboy magazine catapulted Hef into a cultural phenomenon … paving way for the iconic Playboy Mansion that quickly became known for its legendary parties.
According to TMZ … Hefner parted ways with the pad in August 2016 … selling to Pabst Blue Ribbon heir Daren Metropoulos for $100 million. But the sale had one condition — Hefner could live in the mansion without the new owner’s meddling until Hefner died.
