Hugh Hefner’s Family Must Stay Alcohol & Drug Free To Inherit His Wealth

During his heyday, world’s top Playboy Hugh Hefner was worth an unbelievable $267m. Granted, that got decimated by the time he died back in September – he was then worth $43m. But that’s still A LOT. Like, more than most of us will ever see in our lives, let alone own.

Unless you’re one of his heirs, then it’s all yours. Or at least a significant part of it, which is still A LOT. But as reported by LadBible, there’s a rub, you see. Hugh set one very important condition: NO DRUGS.

Yeah, you heard that right: NO DRUGS

Entertainment Tonight got their hands on some legal documents, according to which Hugh’s wife Crystal and their four children, David, Cooper, Christie, and Marston MUST NEVER TAKE illegal drugs, nor become alcoholics. That is, if they want to get access to the millions of dollars he left them.

Need I say it? Congratulations Mr. Hefner, that’s parenting done right!

Reportedly, the long document states the following: “Mandatory distributions to the beneficiary and the beneficiary’s withdrawal rights […] will be suspended if: … the trustees reasonably believe that a beneficiary of any trust routinely or frequently uses or consumes any illegal substance so as to be physically or psychologically dependent upon that substance.”

Well, that’s kinda crystal meth — I mean clear, don’t you think? The document then goes on, saying:

“… Or is clinically dependent upon the use or consumption of alcohol or any other legal drug or chemical substance that is not prescribed by a board certified medical doctor or psychiatrist in a current program of treatment supervised by such doctor or psychiatrist…”

So, in short, if you want Hugh Hefner’s Playboy money, you a) Can’t become a drug addict, and b) Can’t become a drunk.

But hey, you’re thinking, how is anyone going to prove that, right? Like, who knows what you’re actually doing in the privacy of your home. Right?

WRONG. Because the official document even grants the rights of the lawyers to request drug tests if they suspect foul play. Or, just routine drug tests, in order to make sure Hugh’s money land in the right, proper, drug-free, alcohol-free, SOBER hands.

Well, that sounds terrible, doesn’t it? We all have our bad periods in life when things might get a bit out of control. And it’s pretty easy to hook up on some things. Well, worry not, because Mr. Playboy thought of that too – if you’re clean for at least 12 months, Smaug’s cave gets open to you once more.

Well, brace yourselves, Hefners. Because the will is coming.

And where there’s a will, there’s a way! (Pun intended.)
