Nobody gets the best of Hugh Hefner!

The Playboy head honcho was supposed to be gravely ill perhaps even to the point of death this week, and yet that now totally appears to be false, especially in light of a tweet Hef sent on Friday night!

In response to all the hubbub, and a call to police that landed authorities at his home to do a welfare check, Hefner seemed in good spirits when he sent out the following tweet (below):


Sounds like he’s doing just fine!

An inside source revealed more about Hef’s health and it sure sounds like however this rumor got started, it was WAY off-base!

The source said:

“Hef is 90 years old so he has the health of a 90-year-old. He’s an old man. I’m sure he’s not in the best of shape but it’s just old age. This story [about his deteriorating health] always pops up, but as far as I know he’s just very old and there’s nothing really new about that.”

Well then!

As for home health attendants at the Playboy Mansion? No cause for concern there, either!

The source said:

“Hef’s had nurses for years, too. He’s always had doctors coming to see him at the mansion, he never goes out to the doctor. But it’s not like new hospice care or anything like that.”

OK then — now we just wonder what those weekend plans are supposed to be!

We might be able to take a guess…
