Even in death, Hugh Hefner will be living fabulously. The Playboy founder is to be buried next to Marilyn Monroe, the first ever cover girl of his famed Playboy magazine. Click through for more details on Hugh’s extravagant final resting plans.
Hugh made sure he would be buried next to Marilyn nearly 25 years ago, when he first bought the crypt adjacent to Marilyn’s in the mausoleum where she’s buried. The going price for a spot next to the iconic 1950s sex symbol? $75,000.
Hugh will be in good company at the mausoleum, which is located at Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles. Besides Marilyn, Truman Capote, Rodney Dangerfield, Natalie Wood, and Farrah Fawcett are all buried at the VIP cemetery, ET reported.
Hugh died Wednesday, September 27, of natural causes at the age of 91, surrounded by families and friends at the Playboy Mansion.
Hugh gained fame in the 1950s when he founded Playboy magazine, which featured articles, comics, and of course, NSFW photos of women. His empire quickly grew, with club, hotels, and TV shows, including the hit reality show The Girls Next Door.
Hugh is survived by his wife Crystal and four children, Christie, David, Marston, and Cooper. He once said of himself, "the interesting thing is how one guy, through living out his own fantasies, is living out the fantasies of so many other people."
