Even if Hugh Hefner died at the age of 91 at the end of 2017, nobody forgets the character he was as well as his very famous Playboy manor where he welcomed all the Playboy models and the most big celebrations of American show business.
The businessman therefore leaves behind a major legacy: The Playboy mansion. It is however a very mysterious mansion where many stories would have happened. In the 1970s, for example, when Hefner went into business and decided to surround himself with “playmates” in his Chicago mansion, his assistant was accused of distributing drugs in the mansion and ended up committing suicide. . She never wanted to testify against her boss and preferred to kill herself in a hotel room so as not to be involved in her accusations.
Following this tragedy, Hugh Hefner decides to move to Los Angeles and finds a new mansion to settle with his “Playmates”. The manor quickly becomes a place of debauchery for all the people of Hollywood and the evenings do not always end well, either for celebrities or for the state of the manor after each over-watered party.
The manor was then the place where darker stories would have happened. In 1974, Bill Crosby reportedly took a 15-year-old girl to Hefner’s mansion in Los Angeles to rape her. Thirty years later, another young woman wakes up in a room in the manor house with Bill Crosby after losing consciousness during the evening. Bill Crosby was therefore charged with rape and Hugh Hefner for helping Bill Crosby assaulted young girls in his mansion.
It is a dark fate for this mansion which was to be destroyed following the death of its owner but which will ultimately remain standing in the city of Los Angeles.
