Posted on 09/10/2009 6:43:09 AM PDT by Zakeet
After more than a decade of separation, Hugh Hefner is seeking an official return to his bachelor status.
The Playboy founder filed for divorce on Friday from his wife and former Playmate, Kimberly.
Hefner is asking a judge to order him to pay Kimberly Conrad Hefner $20,000 a month in spousal support. That would be half of the $40,000 a month that the Playboy founder has been paying her since they separated in 1998, the records state.
He wants the monthly payments to end in two years, or after a trial on the couple's divorce is held, whichever comes first.
Hefner, the 83-year-old founder of Playboy magazine and its public ambassador, has lived with three girlfriends at the infamous Playboy Mansion since 2001. Their relationship has been the subject of the E! show "The Girls Next Door."
Hefner and Kimberly Conrad Hefner were married in 1989, the same year she was named Playmate of the Year. They separated in 1998. Hefner continued to live at the mansion, and Kimberly Hefner moved into a home next door with the couple's two young sons.
She sued Hefner last month, claiming he owes her $4 million under their prenuptial agreement and for proceeds from the sale of the home she is living in. Her lawsuit states Hefner agreed to pay her $250,000 per year for every year they were married after their fourth anniversary.
In recent years, Hefner and his girlfriends who have included Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt have starred on "The Girls Next Door." His relationship with all three has since ended and he's now living with three new women, including twins.

At my age, it's getting expensive to buy true love!
The man buys those blue pills by the case, trouble is he forgets where he puts them. And it takes several hundred and he falls to sleep while taking them.
Naw. She gets half of his earnings, starting on the day they were married. Just like any other divorce settlement. Too bad, Hughie.
Story’s no good without pics of the future ex or his latest squeeze.
Think of the antiobiotics they need at that mansion....
I hope the guy lives to be 95 and still has blond 20 year olds hanging off his arm and cooing........."Oh Hef is sooo hot!!" Maybe then the world will finally see this for the empty farce that it is.
Does anybody believe that Hef’s multiple “girlfriends” are anything more than a PR sham? I have to admit that just about every guy has dreamed of being in his shoes (or slippers) at some point but these days his Viagra pony show is just pathetic.
He’s no dummy, they signed a pre-nup, surely at his insistence.
Look Hef, someone should tell you: you look ridiculous. You look like a befuddled old man. I know, I know, you think guys should envy your lifestyle and wish to be you every waking moment. But what you don’t get is that most men secretly acknowledge that, by 70 years of age, a MATURE man has moved on from chasing “poontang” to caring and loving the next generation (i.e. grandchildren). If you’re whole loverboy schtick is authentic, you’re incredibly pathetic.
I think I could just about struggle along on $20K per month.
Now this is funny!
I remember watching some documentary show about the Playboy mansion. Hef was giving a tour and it was funny because the place was really cool circa 1979 but hasn’t changed much since. It reminded me of my Great Uncle who had this great vacation home that he stopped updating in the 60s because he got too old to care. Poor Heff and his collection of 10,000 movies VHS lol.
“Poor Heff and his collection of 10,000 movies VHS lol”. Buy that man a Bud!! LOL.
Not in Holmby Hills. Kim's gonna have to start slumming it in a different zip code.
Isn’t he being an incredible hypocrite getting married in the first place?
Good. If I lived in Holmby Hills, I'd be thrilled at the opportunity to move. I loathe Holmby Hills and everything it stands for. In the places I love to be--the mountains of Colorado, the piedmont of Virginia, Aiken and Charleston in South Carolina, or Wellington, Florida--you can survivequite nicely on $20K a month.
The girlfriend thing is a job for these girls and Hef is nothing more than a father/grandfather figure. These girls have curfews, allowance, etc. It is all so fake. Hefs relationship with Holly Madison was real. She wanted marriage and kids and he couldn’t give either so she moved on. If you watched The Girls Next Door you can see for Kendra it was all a career thing. She even said so when leaving Hef for her now hubby. So I don’t believe these girls really spend a lot of time with Hef other then getting paid to be on his arms at public events.
Probably, but I still hope she gets half.
Just like any pimp. Just like any pimp.
California IS a community property state.
In the United States there are nine community property states: Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
Unless you sign a prenup.
So? I hope she get millions anyhow. IDGaF about Hugh Hefner. Courts throw prenups out all the time.
Though I’m no lawyer, I have to think state law would be part of the argument, especially since SHE is alleging Hef hasn’t lived up to the prenup.
I’m asking here, but if the judge rules that Hef breached the prenup, and since he voided the contract, then Community Property kicks in and she gets half of earnings for the time they were married.
Could such a ruling be possible?
I,too,am not a lawyer so I don't know.Allegations are made all the time in divorce cases.At first glance you can seldom be sure which ones are true and which are unfounded.If the judge,by chance,declared the prenup "null and void" and that declaration was upheld by higher courts I would think that this would revert to your basic California "beautiful people" divorce.
