PLAYBOY founder Hugh Hefner’s wife Crystal Harris is expected to inherit nothing after the 91-year-old’s death.
Crystal, 31, is thought to have signed a prenuptial agreement and is believed to have never been added the magazine magnate’s will.
However, she’ll apparently be ‘looked after’ following the entrepreneur’s death, reports US Weekly.
Hefner, the pipe-smoking embodiment of the lifestyle he touted, died at his LA home of natural causes last night, Playboy said in a statement.
Hefner is survived by Crystal as well as his daughter, Christie; and his sons, David, Marston and Cooper.
Playboy announced no immediate funeral plans, but Hefner owned a plot in a Los Angeles cemetery next to Marilyn Monroe.

Paying tribute, the firm behind the magazine described Hefner as “the American icon who in 1953 introduced the world to Playboy magazine and built the company into one of the most recognisable American global brands in history.”
His son Cooper said “my father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom.
“He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand,” he continued.
Hefner has four children from his two previous marriages.
His daughter Christie who was born in 1952 and son David, born in 1955, were from his frist marriage to Mildred Williams, who he was with from 1949 to 1959.
His younger two sons – Marston, born in 1990, and Cooper, born in 1991 – were from his marriage to Playboy’s “Playmate of the Year”, Kimberly Conrad.
He split with Kimberley in 2010 – the same year he announced his engagement to his current partner.
At the time of his death, Hefner’s net worth was estimated to be around £40million.
His fortune is believed to have totalled some £160million in years gone by, but was hit hard when Playboy’s stock lost 80 per cent of its value.
