Hugh Hefner’s widow Crystal Harris may not inherit any of the wealth from his Playboy magazine empire, according to Us Weekly.
A source told Us on Thursday that Harris and Hefner signed an “ironclad” prenuptial agreement before their wedding at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in December 2012.
Harris had not been added to Hefner’s pre-existing will at the time, and the magazine publisher’s large fortune was instead promised elsewhere.
“[It’s for] his children, the University of Southern California film school and a variety of charities,” Us’ source said.
Some Twitter users on Friday reacted to the possibility that Harris, 31, may not receive any of Hefner’s savings following his death two days before.
I doubt we'll see estate battles between Hugh Hefner's widow & family.— Lee Radziwill (@RadziwillLee) September 29, 2017
Hopefully Anna Nicole with J. Howard Marshall taught them a lesson.
Plz keep Hugh Hefner's 30 year old widow, Crystal Hefner, in your thoughts and prayers because she's allegedly inheriting nothing— g-money (@sauceboss666) September 29, 2017
Hey guys, Hugh Hefner's widow is only 31 years old. May have been a prenup but there's probably a little something there.— 🗝KMAD🗝 (@KMADrunner) September 29, 2017
Go get em tigers!
Hefner, 91, passed away on Wednesday from natural causes while surrounded by loved ones at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
The businessman’s estate was estimated to be worth $43 million in 2013, a number that does not include the $100 million he sold the Playboy Mansion for in August 2016.
Harris, a nude model who served as Playboy’s December 2009 Playmate of the Month, married Hefner in December 2012 when she was 26 and he was 86.
Hefner was married twice before tying the knot with Harris, and she initially broke off their engagement in June 2011, five days before a wedding they had planned for then.
Playboy’s first issue was published in December 1953, with a nude image of actress Marilyn Monroe taken for a calendar used as the publication’s debut centerfold.
Hefner later credited Monroe with securing the magazine’s longstanding success, with its first issue completely selling out with 50,000 copies getting sold across the U.S.
The publishing mogul is survived by Harris, his sons Cooper, David and Marston Hefner, and his daughter Christie Hefner.
