Hugh Hefner will never be forgotten.
As you all may know, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner passed away last night peacefully in his Los Angeles home.
He was 91, and he lived a crazy life since launching the Playboy magazine in 1953 that then led to legendary mansion parties and notable figures that graced each publications cover such as Marilyn Monroe, Cindy Crawford, Kim Basinger, Pamela Anderson, Madonna, Sharon Stone, Naomi Campbell, Carmen Electra, Drew Barrymore and even Kim Kardashian.
"My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom," Cooper Hefner, Playboy Enterprises' chief creative officer and Hugh's son, said in the statement as reported by HNHH.
Hefner's death comes after a lengthy disappearance from the limelight and close to a year after the death of his brother Keith, who passed due to cancer.
He's survived by 4 children, Christine and David from his first marriage and Marston and Cooper from his second marriage.
Hugh had a few cameos in a number of movies and TV shows that boasted and familiarized his name even more. We're talking "Entourage," "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "The House Bunny," and "Sex And The City."
Earlier this year a doc-series titled American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story premiered on Amazon Prime that chronicled his life and his impact on global culture.
In light of his recent passing, lots of rappers and celebrities have been pouring their condolences on social media sending a restful peace to Hefner.
Most notably is Pamela Anderson who has done 14 covers and 15 pictorials for the magazine. The 50-year-old shared a crying video to Instagram with heartfelt words on how the last time she saw Hefner, he was "using a walker."
"You didn't want me to see. You couldn't hear," she continued in the post. "You had a piece of paper in your pocket you showed me - with my name Pamela with a heart around it."
