However, in an interview with British Vogue Kate Moss insisted her memories are only positive, with the Los Angeles house appearing to be more like a family home than a harem.

I really liked him and he was there with his kids and a few of his bunnies and one of his bunnies took me round the house and gave me a tour and stuff,” she told the publication. “I met his secretary who’d been with him for like 70 years, they’re just like a lovely institution or something, family vibes. I don’t know, I really liked it, there was nothing like seedy or gross about it. It was kind of really playful,” added Kate. She is no stranger to defending men under attack, she also defended her ex Johnny Depp, 59, against unsavory accusations made during his recent defamation trial with Amber Heard, 36.

Former Playboy bunnies Holly Madison, 42, and Bridget Marquardt, 47 who were considered his “main girlfriends” have revealed shocking insights about Hefner and life in the mansion in their new podcast, “Girls Next Level.” The women revealed Hefner had a “black book,” which he used to keep a record of the women in the house. “The black book kept track of a few different things,” Marquardt said. “It kept track of when somebody collected their allowance so you couldn’t ask for it twice." “It also kept track of who slept with him and when,” she said. Madison described the sex life with Hefner as “hell” and “traumatic.” “He wouldn’t move. He would be like a bump on the log in the middle of the bed,” she recalled, adding the women in the mansion “wanted to get [the sex] over with as quickly as possible” because they weren’t “into it.” “We thought of it as a chore that we had to do or else we’ll get kicked out of the house. Everybody just wanted to make it go by as quickly as possible,” Madison, who was with Hugh from 2001 until 2008, revealed.
