Hugh Hefner’s death came as a shock to many, but since his passing, many of us have been wondering something. Does his wife, Crystal Harris, inherit anything from her late husband? Well, the internet has been wondering the same thing.
According to Us Weekly, Crystal Harris may actually NOT inherit anything from her late husband, who died of natural causes at the age of 91 on September 27th. Some are shocked with this, others are not.
A source exclusively told Us Weekly that back in 2013, the model, 31, and Hefner signed an “ironclad” prenuptial agreement before their wedding at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles back in 2012.
Crystal has not been added to his pre-existing will at the time, according to Us Weekly. So who exactly does his massive fortune go to?
According to the source, the massive fortune has been promised to “his children, the University of Southern California film school and a variety of charities”.
It’s been reported that Hugh Hefner’s entire estate was estimated to be worth $43 million back in 2013.
But that doesn’t include the $100 million for which he sold the Playboy Mansion in August 2016. Various news outlets are now trying to get an update from Harris on this topic.
Hefner’s son, Cooper, confirmed his father’s death in a statement released last Wednesday night. He noted, “My father lived an exception and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer…”
He continued, “…and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights, and sexual freedom,” the 26-year-old film producer wrote.
Cooper continued, “he defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand, one of the most recognizable and enduring in history”.
He concluded, writing “He will be greatly missed by many, including his wife, Crystal, my sister, Christie, and my brothers David and Marston, and all of us at Playboy Enterprises.”
