“Playboy” magazine founder Hugh Hefner was reported dead after he was found not breathing inside his mansion.
A new report even dished that some police officers rushed to his home on Friday to conduct an investigation.
What could have caused his supposed death? At the age of 90, did he die because of old age, or from an illness which was kept from the public?
According to NBC Los Angeles, the police officers showed up in the residence of Hugh Hefner at around 10:30AM to verify the speculations, especially that some news outlets have claimed that he is currently sick.
What could be their findings?
LAPD Officer Mike Lopez revealed that the death of the former “Esquire” writer “obviously did not happen.”
“Mr. Hefner spoke with an officer at the West LA station and confirmed he’s OK,” Lopez added.
While rumors have continued to swirl claiming that the publisher of the world-famous men’s magazine died 10 years short prior to his centennial birthday, the Illinois-born publisher was actually enjoying some sweet moments with his 30-year-old wife Crystal.
Mirror UK reported that Hugh Hefner shared a snap with his wife on a movie date night on an unspecified social media platform on Friday.
“Tonight’s Mansion movie is the classic western, Shane,” he captioned his post.
To further debunk reports about his alleged death, he also took to Twitter to send his fans a message, which Hollywood Life said was a proof that he still has maintained his“suave swagger.”
“I wish the tabloids had informed me a little earlier in the week that I’m sick,” Hugh Hefner tweeted on Saturday. “I might have cancelled my weekend plans.”
It can be recalled that on Thursday, Page Six reported that a source shared with them how ill he is already.
“He looks like he is down to around 90 pounds and super sick,” the unnamed source alleged about Hugh Hefner’s condition, which ignited death speculations. “His people are really trying to keep this under wraps. You even have to sign a confidentiality agreement to go up to see him.”
