Living in Luxury
Good old Hugh Hefner is a mighty big spender as documented in a court filling on his own finances, but before all that he has a monthly income of $116,667 income from playboy. He has close to 35 Million in stocks and bonds from the company side and generally pulls in money from a lot of other sources like royalties, pension, property rentals and a lot more. He specifically spends $25,000 a month on entertainment of different kinds and we don’t really imagine it to be anything like Xbox games.
Cars: Hefner like any other millionaire spends money on those beautiful road beauties and his collection is especially cool with cars like the Lamborghini Gallardo, several BMW’s and a couple of classic cars that you certainly cannot see in a museum.
Home: he lives in the extraordinary Playboy Mansion which has a lifestyle standard of its own. Its real value is a mystery as everyone seems to be giving it a different price tag but one thing is for sure that this is not your average mansion with a wingspan of 20,000 sq ft. and amenities that put a five star hotel to shame.
