What Hugh Hefner is Actually Worth


It’s unusual for a gossip magazine to post details of someone’s monthly expenditures. But TMZ did just that after they obtained a copy of Hef’s income and expense declarations, which came with his divorce papers.

Here’s how much Hugh rakes in per month:

— Salary from Playboy: $116,667
— Social Security: $1,896
— Dividends and interest: $121,099
— Rental property: $17,058
— Income from HMH Productions: $15,808
— Pensions and retirement: $413
— Other miscellaneous income: $17,639

–Total monthly income: $290,580

In addition, Hugh has the following assets:

— $306,548 in cash
— $36,802,558 in stocks and bonds (besides Playboy)
— $6,122,990 in a joint account with an unnamed person

— Total assets (excluding Playboy stock and property): $43,232,096

And here’s how Hugh spends his millions per month:

— Rent (including groceries, household supplies, utilities, cell phone and email): $53,593
— Food (approximate): $18,000
— Entertainment: $25,000
— College expenses for kids: $10,130
— Health care: $3,215

$36.8 million in stocks and bonds? I’d like to know more details about where he puts all that.
