25 Shocking Secrets About The Playboy Mansion

Hugh Hefner Didn’t Own The Playboy Mansion

You’d think Hefner — who was rumored to be worth around $50 million at the time of his passing — would’ve owned this iconic building. As fate would have it, he actually didn’t technically own the building.

According to various reports, Playboy Enterprises owned the building. It got to a point where Hefner actually had to lease the building from the company. Before you start feeling bad for Hugh, let’s look at the fine print of the contract. Some reports insist Hefner only had to pay $100/month for the leasing of the building.
