Crystal Hefner, 35, who was married to Playboy magazine's founder Hugh Hefner from 2012 to 2017, took to Twitter to talk about her husband's collection of revenge porn.

Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend, former model Holly Madison, in an episode of the 10-part A&E series titled 'Secrets of Playboy' had spoken about his dark personality.

Madison, who was Hefner's girlfriend from 2001 till 2008, said that Hefner kept naked pictures of several women so he could use them as a form of blackmail. The 42-year old said that she remained with Hefner at the Playboy Mansion with the fear that he would publish her photos.

Madison said, "When I lived in the mansion, I was afraid to leave. Something that was always lingering in the back of my mind, I think since the very beginning, was that if I left, there was just this mountain of revenge porn just waiting to come out." She added, "When you would go out with Hef, he's taking all kinds of naked pictures of these women who we're wasted out of our minds."

On 24 January, Crystal Hefner confirmed Madison's account via a tweet that said," I found thousands of those disposable camera photos you were talking about @hollymadison, I immediately ripped them up and destroyed every single one of them for you and the countless other women in them. They're gone."

 



 

 

Madison replied to the tweet saying, "Thank you."



 

 

Not only this, but Crystal is also trying to set the record straight on other aspects of the documentary. The allegation by Sharmagne Leland-St John that Hefner kept a "home video" of the Manson family and is fascinated by Charles Manson was denied by his widow Crystal via a tweet. She said that it is a lie and that Hefner was only friends with Vincent Bugliosi, the Manson family prosecutor but not with Manson himself.

 



 

 

Nevertheless, the documentary is bringing up so many dark secrets of the Playboy founder who launched its very first edition in 1953 at the age of 27. The first edition of the magazine had sold more than 50,000 copies. Hefner began the empire that spanned for decades. 

Madison, who was only 21 when she moved into the Playboy Mansion and became Hefner's "main girlfriend", claimed that Hefner offered her a "Quaalude", a very powerful sedative which has been illegal since 1984, telling her that the drug was known as the 'thigh-openers' in the '70s. 

Besides, Madison, Hefner's former butler has also claimed that his boss would host "pig-night" where he would invite high-profile people and celebrities and secretly film them having sex with ugly prostitutes. Sondra Theodore, another ex-girlfriend who dated Hefner from 1976 to 1981, compared life at the Mansion to be in a 'Cult'.

After these allegations and some confirmation by Hefner's widow, the Playboy magazine has now issued a statement where it has condemned some of its founder's actions.

"Today's Playboy is not Hugh Hefner's Playboy," the magazine said. "We trust and validate these women and their stories and we strongly support those individuals who have come forward to share their experiences," the statement read.
