According to reports, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has passed away at 91, reported by TMZ and other sources. Hugh died at his home peacefully surrounded by loved ones.
According to TMZ:
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 cancer.
Playboy magazine catapulted Hef into a cultural phenomenon … paving way for the iconic Playboy Mansion that quickly became known for its legendary parties.
As TMZ reported … Hefner parted ways with the pad in August 2016 … selling to Pabst Blue Ribbon heir Daren Metropoulos for $110 million. But the sale had one condition — Hefner could live in the mansion without the new owner’s meddling until Hefner died.
We send our condolences to his loved ones.
