Find Out What Playboy Mogul Hugh Hefner, 91, Left For 31 Year Old Wife, Crystal Harris

Find Out What Playboy Mogul Hugh Hefner, 91, Left For 31 Year Old Wife, Crystal Harris Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris
  • Harris married Hefner in 2012, but the signed a prenuptual agreement cutting her out of his will
  • Instead, he bought her a $5 million home and left her an additional $5 million lump sum upon his death
  • The four-bedroom pad, which is now worth $7 million, is a sizeable 5,900 square feet
  • It has a cinema room, a vast walk-in wardrobe, an infinity pool, five bathrooms and a games room
  • It also overlooks the Sunset Strip, while vast windows let in light but block heat
  • The rest of Hef's estate has been left to charitable causes and his four children

 

Despite claims that she would receive nothing from his fortune, Hugh Hefner's widow, Crystal Harris, 31, will keep a stunning home worth $7 million and a $5 million lump sum, it has emerged.

A watertight prenup had apparently blocked Harris from receiving a penny of the 91-year-old's $43 million fortune on his death. Instead, it was divided between his four children, the University of Southern California and a list of charities.

But that same prenup in fact promised Harris a substantial package of money, as well as the four-bedroom Hollywood Hills house that Hefner bought her in 2013, TMZ reported.

Hefner bought the 5,900-square-foot home for $4,995,000 and placed the deed in a trust for Harris in 2012, the year before they married.

As well as its four bedrooms, it has five bathrooms and a gorgeous outdoor infinity pool surrounded by decking and is now worth around $7 million, according to Zillow.

The interiors are kitted out in a sleek, modern style composed of hard geometric angles, with bright white and white oak wood as the primary colors in the scheme.

That's a sharp contrast to the classical stone-and-mahogany style of Hefner's famous 21,987-square-foot Playboy Mansion.

Vast glass windows ensure that there is always light streaming in when desired, especially in the multiple living areas ideal for entertaining. 

They've also been tempered with a low emissivity - or 'Low-E' - coating that absorbs infrared radiation, to stop the home from heating up too much in the LA sun - though of course there's AC in case of a particularly hot day. 

The home was built in 2011 and features white oak, Brazilian walnut, and Caesarstone tiling on its floors to add warmth and elegance.

The kitchen is based around a central island area, with seating for three - but space for eight more diners can be found at the beautifully appointed table in the combined dining area, which also features a sofa and TV.

For truly spectacular viewing, however, square-eyed show watchers should turn to the screening room, where two wide sofas and two plush armchairs face a huge TV.

Meanwhile, the adjoining games room has a poker table, pool table and a low table ideal for a post-game glass of wine.

As well as the four bathrooms - the master bathroom featuring his-and-hers sinks - there's a walk-in wardrobe the size of some New York apartments, which should provide more than enough space for Harris' clothes

The master bathroom also includes a Gessi steam shower with nine shower heads for an all-over wash.

Also inside the building are 'floating staircases' and cantilevered terraces that overlook the Sunset Strip.

The home is wired up to smart technology, has an inbuilt garage and is generally a pretty stunning place for a 31-year-old to inhabit - albeit under sad circumstances.

However, it doesn't come cheap, even with ownership; the property tax was $62,348 in 2015 and 2016 alike. 

Perhaps that's why the property was up for rent in August at a cool $25,000 per month.

That listing was then closed on September 9, according to Zillow. 

At his peak, Hefner was worth upwards of $200million, but as the magazine's popularity tanked, he lost millions.

He was worth an estimated $43 million in 2009 - a figure that did not include his Playboy Mansion, which he sold in June for $100 million; half its asking price.

By the time of his death, he held 35 per cent of the Playboy brand and still completely owned the magazine. He had $36million worth of stocks and bonds and $6million in a joint account with an unnamed person.

His monthly earnings from the magazine only totaled $100,000, with the rest coming from his pension. 

The rest of his estate has been divided between his children: Marston and now-Penthouse-boss Cooper, who were born to second wife Kimberley Conrad; and Christie and David, whom he had with first wife Mildred Williams.
