The late actor, who created the Playboy magazine, left behind an impressive estate after his death. His pre-nuptial agreement assigned his property to his children and his wife Debbie Harris. Harris received $7 million from the estate. But it’s unclear how much of this will go to the children of his other wives. The estate will be divided among his four children: Crystal, David, Marson, and Cooper.
Crystal Harris is the third spouse of Hefner. The Hollywood Hills mansion is listed as her co-owner on the deed. The couple were playmates and had a close relationship. While she will not inherit the fortune, Hefner left $5 million to Harris, his children will receive the rest of the money. The rest will go to several charities, including the University of Southern California Film School.
Hefner’s crypt was located in Hollywood. He bought it for US$75,000 and was buried next to the actress Marilyn Monroe. Although his will didn’t reveal his intentions, his children will inherit a large portion of his fortune. They will have to prove their kinship, because it’s not clear how his children will be cared for. And they will likely fight over it.
The Playboy mansion and brand, which Hefner owned, were sold in August 2016 for a $100 million. Hefner owned 35% of the Playboy brand, a magazine, and stocks, and six million in a joint account with an unnamed person. In addition to this, Hefner’s Playboy Mansion was sold to Darren Metropoulos, a neighbor. Although Metropoulos purchased the mansion, the actor agreed to stay in the house until his death.
