As you’ve likely heard by now, iconic Playboy founder Hugh Hefner passed away last night at the age of 91.
Sources say Hef, as he was known to so many, passed peacefully, at home in his famous mansion, surrounded by loved ones.
Among those loved ones was Hefner’s third wife, Crystal Harris.
Hefner and Harris married in 2012, and their relationship was often a tumultuous one.
The couple was originally scheduled to tie the knot one year earlier, but Harris called off the wedding, and was consequently dubbed “the runaway bride” on the cover of Playboy.
Harris returned to Hefner, and the couple eventually reconciled.
The sixty year age difference, caused many to question Harris’ motives in marrying Hefner, but the model says she was never after the publishing magnate’s money.
We hope for her sake that she was being truthful in that assertion, as The Daily Mail is reporting today that Harris will receive no inheritance from Hefner’s estate.
The London tabloid claims that Harris signed an “iron clad” prenup before marrying Hefner.
As such, she’ll receive no part of his estimated $43 million fortune, which will instead be divided amongst his four children, the Universisty of Southern California, and several charities chosen by Hef.
Playboy’s popularity declined in recent years, and while he played a reduced role in the magazine’s day-to-day operations, Hefner remained the face of the brand until his death.
More important to his heirs, of course, is the fact that he retained 35 percent ownership of the Playboy corporation.
There’s no word on how his share will be passed on, but it’s believed it will be divided equally among his children.
Hefner handed off the bulk of the magazine’s operations duties to his son Marston last year.
Sources close to the situation say that Harris will be “taken care of,” presumably with a monthly stipend.
But it seems that if Crystal was hoping to never work again as a result of her marriage to Hefner, she may have been mistaken.
