Is Hef Close To Bankruptcy???

| Filed under: PlayboyKendra WilkinsonHolly Madison


Are financial woes the real reasons behind Hef's break ups with Holly and Kendra?

Reportedly teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, Hef has not only been forced to cut back on staffing, but now, in a bid to rake in some extra income, the public is being invited to the exclusive Playboy Mansion parties…at $5,000 to $25,000 a ticket. If there's a hot celebrity on the guest list, expect a ticket in the higher range!

The Mansion has long since been available to rent for corporate events, but this is the first time that anyone can pay to take a dip in the infamous Grotto, where clothing doesn't stay on for long.

What people don't know is that Hugh Hefner himself does not own the mansion - his company does. And yes, he pays rent on it. About $700,000 a year.

Not untouched by a waning national economy, Hef's stocks have plunged to a third of what they were worth a year ago.

So are the Bunnies included in that staffing cut? Has all the gold been dug?

Martha Lindeman, Playboy Enterprises’ senior vice president, said otherwise, of course. Apparently the Bunnies "are not even on the payroll. So, they would be the last to go."

Unless they're heading out on their own accord.

Poor poor Puffin.

    What's broke for the average Joe,is nothing Hugh Hefner will ever experience.

    Even if he is struggling,he has more money than most of us will ever see in a lifetime.

    Sorry,I don't pity the rich.lol

    Re: _Alice_ – yeah i heard he had sex with a guy once…is that true?

  17. 17

    Everyone is experiencing tough economic times right now - so this does not suprise me - however, I highly doubt that Playboy is close to bankruptcy!

    there will always be some woman who wants to be used that will take care of all of his needs…

  19. 19

    now that the playboy whores have read this I guess they wont want any sexy times with Hef anymore….oh wait I forgot those bitches can't even read so forget it

  20. 20

    Re: her_own_wings – rumors are that he loves gay porn. and he admits to having occasional flings with guys.

  21. 21

    Hurry Hef and get on Social Security….

    While this country still has it. Ha!

  22. 22

    HA HA!

  23. 23

    This guy is funny. Do people believe he f*cks these stupid girls?

  24. 24

    Thats NOT TRUE!!!! Hefs mansion was bought a long time ago, its already paid for!!!!!!!

  25. 25

    Okay, he don't won the house, but his company does… doesnt he own the company?

  26. 26

    they are not selling tickets to the official halloween party on the 25th. they are selling tickets to a party that will be held at the mansion by another company, not playboy.

  27. 27

    Looks like the Party is over for Hef.
    Maybe he will lose him home because fo the corporate fat cats too!

  28. 28

    keep it together Hugh!
    I need my paycheck!

    girlfriends REPLACED already!
    by twins Karissa and Kristina, hotter and younger…

  30. 30

    He's a predatory old man who has profited in an immoral way for years. Karma will eventually get your ass though, man. Gotcha…

  31. 31

    I heard that perpetual hanger on, Bill Maher, is doing is part to help Hef out financially, by giving blowjobs for a dollar a plop.

  32. 32

    hope the old fucker is close to death,that would solve his problems

  33. 33

    guess after he screwed Kendra (skank), his dick fell off and now he is broke. poor hef!!

  34. 34

    I agree with another post, Playboy is totally irrelevant and out-of-date.

    Also I'm sure he is gay.

    Those women are just `high-class' (expensive) WHORES.

  35. 35

    i hope the mag dosent go belly up, but it really needs to expand alot…better pictorials - not quality but originality and more ehtnic women are SERIOUSLY NEEDED, especially asian. most of the articles are good, but there needs to be more of them..perhaps a road test section as well and less ads. the big draw used to be on the bunnies but nowadays, who pays $$ for it when there is terabites and terabites out there free…

    lmao - mabye hef can get a bail out from the gov't also - isnt playboy an american institution?

  36. 36

    Um, isn't like porn free on the internet?
    So who actually buys or pays for Playboy?

  37. 37

    with free naked girls and porn on the internet why pay 7 or 8 dollars for a magazine anyway? and as far as the mansion parties go, i have gotten an email saying i can go for 5000.00 when i could of gotten in for free. damn free poison concert :(


  38. 38

    they using him for fame and money and now that he might be feeling the pinch due to the bad economy they parting their ways. anyways Hef always has woman around so he shouldnt feel to bad. Thankfully he didnt give into Holly nagging him to marry her because she woulda took it all he's a smart man. They aint getting his big fortune it he passes away that all stays with his real wife and kids. That Lady aint stupid she didn't divorce him. Maybe his kids can keep the Playboy Manchin and do the same as their Father..

  39. 39

    The Feds need to bail out the bunnies.

  40. 40

    Ah, so that's why the rats were jumping ship! Yeah, you really find out who gave a shit about you and who didn't when you're money's gone…

  41. 41

    That Holly was practically *begging* Hef to marry her for 4 seasons of that show! She even tried to convince him to at least have a baby with her and probably just so she could have a definite financial connection to him for life. She went on and on about how he was her "soul mate" and blah blah blah and now that he might be broke all three girls are suddenly finding him so much less appealing. It's kinda hard to claim you're not a gold-digger given that sort of evidence!!

  42. 42

    Re: _Alice_ – Hugh Hefner is *gay*? That's the stupidest thing I have read all night - and I've been to facebook, here, and MySpace. So that's saying a lot! LOL

  43. 43

    its that nasty wife of his that has drained him bigtime all these yrs
    good thang u had them sons hun

  44. 44

    Him paying rent to his company allows him to deduct all the 'luxuries' he gets for the mansion. That actually is helping him keep more money………

  45. 45

    aww poor hef :-(

  46. 46

    i hate him he let go of the best girls in his life bridget hollu n kendra 4 tangoed twins but his life must suck rite now hes running out of money less girls…

  47. 47

    The girls aren't on the payroll, but they do get allowances of thousands of dollars per month. If the allowance goes, so do the golddiggers.

  48. 48

    It is called KARMA! An 82 year old screwing his granddaughters all these years is nasty. Oh wait he wasn't related to all the young ass thrown his way. EIther way it is sick and sad that these girls are so desperate for attention and money from an old fart. Get a rich 40 year old sugar daddy, travel the world, and actually enjoy getting fucked!
