The last words of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner before his death have become known
Crystal Hefner, the widow of Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy magazine, revealed for the first time what her husband's last words were shortly before his death on September 27, 2017. In those days, the businessman was battling an infection.
According to the new book "Speak Only Good: Surviving Playboy and Finding Yourself," the media mogul tried to convince his chosen one that he could overcome the disease. However, he failed. The New York Post writes about it.
Crystal wrote that Hugh Hefner told her: "I'm fine" when he was given antibiotics through an intravenous drip.
Although Hugh was previously believed to have died at the age of 91 of "natural causes," the entrepreneur's wife said that in his last days he had been battling an aggressive E. coli infection that was "very resistant to antibiotics and difficult to treat."
Before that, Hugh Hefner had asked his wife to keep many of the sordid details of her life with him a secret and to tell "only the good things," which Crystal did for five years.
However, after working with a psychotherapist, she decided it was time to tell society how a young girl had to live in the toxic environment of Playboy parties, why she married a man who was 60 years older, and what she was thinking at that time in her life.
Earlier, the model admitted that she was never in love with Hugh Hefner. According to the book, the blonde accepted the proposal but broke off the engagement just five days before their planned June 2011 wedding to return to her ex.
However, this romance did not work out, so the model decided to move to a mansion where loud parties were held all the time. According to her, the price for success and fame, in the case of many Playboy models, is "sleeping with an 80-year-old man," following his strict rules, and pretending to be happy in public.
