We wish Hugh Hefner all the best!
Late last year, the Playboy founder was the subject of several death rumors circulating around the Internet. Luckily, the legend is very much alive and kicking, and was active on social media up until January of this year.
But how is he doing now??
In an interview with E! News published Wednesday afternoon, son Cooper Hefner FINALLY gives an update on his father’s health. According to the magazine’s current Chief Creative Officer:
“He’s doing fine… My dad has always made the joke that if the mansion was your house, why would you want to leave?”
We are so glad!!
While the 25-year-old understands why the rumors began, he assures everyone that his father is still doing well.
“I think because he has stepped back from the day to day operations of the business, people have thought that his health was not very good… The reality is he has a really bad back├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥that happens when you’re 90├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥and he is enjoying life at the mansion.”
Although Cooper said his dad was “excited” about his upcoming Amazon docuseries American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story, the 90-year-old was unable to attend the premiere Tuesday night.
Even though he wasn’t able to celebrate, Hugh still has a big week ahead of him! Not only does his new show premiere Friday, he turns 91 on Sunday.
No matter what age he is, Mr. Hefner is still the man!
