Hugh Hefner laughs off illness reports

Hugh Hefner has poked fun at rumours suggesting he is battling ill health.
Reports that the 90-year-old Playboy mogul’s health had deteriorated so dramatically he was on his death bed have recently been circling and some allegations even suggested he had passed away.
However, Hugh took to Twitter to set the record straight on Friday (30Sep16), jokingly writing, “I wish the tabloids had informed me a little earlier in the week that I’m sick. I might have cancelled my weekend plans.”
He also shared he was kicking off his weekend watching the movie Shane with his wife Crystal. Besides a picture of him and Crystal, 30, he wrote, “Tonight’s Mansion movie is the classic western, ‘Shane’.”
It was also reported police officers had gone to his home after hearing the death scare rumours, but Los Angeles Police Department Officer Mike Lopez disputed this, telling NBC, “This obviously did not happen. Mr. Hefner spoke with an officer at the West LA station and confirmed he’s OK.”
A source also confirmed to ETOnline Hugh was doing just fine, adding that although he suffers from back pain and sometimes struggles to get around, he is “enjoying his life, and is still very involved in the day-to-day activities of editing the magazine (Playboy).”
