Hugh Hefner Laid To Rest In Private Ceremony Next To Marilyn Monroe
Playboy king Hugh Hefner was laid to rest on Saturday at a private ceremony where only a few of his closest family and friends were a part of it, reported TMZ. Sources say that Hefner's four children, his wife Crystal Harris and some Playboy staff were present for the funeral service which happened at L.A.'s Westwood Village Memorial Park.
According to reports, his crypt is directly to the left of Hollywood diva Marilyn Monroe's grave. T Hefner bought the burial spot for $75k in 1992. Not just Monroe but he also lies beside Dorothy Stratten, a Playboy Playmate who just at 20 was murdered in 1980 by her estranged husband. Her boyfriend at that time director Peter Bogdanovich blamed Hefner and the "Playboy sex factory" for her death.
Meanwhile claims that Hefner's Crystal Harris, 31, would receive nothing from his fortune, but reportedly the widow will be keeping a stunning home worth $7 million and a $5 million amount of cash. Reports suggest that a watertight prenup had prevented her from receiving a single penny from Hefner's fortune instead the fortune would be divided between his four children, the University of Southern California and a list of charities. But that same prenup also stated that Harris will get a good amount of money along with a four-bedroom house at Hollywood Hills. Hefner gifted the beautiful house to his wife in 2013.
The youngest son of the Playboy chief plans on carrying on his father's legacy. The 26-year-old is the chief creative officer at Playboy Enterprises, founder of media company HOP and a member of the California State Military Reserve. After the death of his father, he will be inheriting his father's £40 million net worth company.The young gun is also like his father and leads a high-flying life.
"I remember my dad as a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time", said Hefner's son during the funeral."My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer.He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand", he further added.
