Founder of Playboy Magazine Hugh Hefner has passed away at the ripe age of 91.
Playboy says Hugh died peacefully at home Wednesday, surrounded by loved ones.
Hefner’s health had been reported to have been in serious decline over the last year and he’s not been seen in public for some time. His passing comes just over a year after his brother, Keith, died battling cancer.
The deceased Hefner founded Playboy in 1953 with Marilyn Monroe making appearance on the first cover. The magazine landed huge celebrities for years to come, including Cindy Crawford, Kim Basinger, Pamela Anderson, Madonna, Sharon Stone, Naomi Campbell, Carmen Electra, Drew Barrymore and Kim Kardashian.
