Nearly three months after Playboy founder Hugh Hefner died at the age of 91, his trust documents are available to the public, and the Girls Next Door alum did everything he could to make sure his family doesn’t party too hard without him. The documents outlined that the beneficiaries of his estate – his widow Crystal Hefner and his kids Christie, David, Marston, and Cooper – will not receive any distributions if they frequently use illegal substances or become dependent on alcohol or prescription drugs.
According to People Magazine, the trust documents state that if a trustee believes one of the beneficiaries is violating Hefner’s rules, they can withdraw the beneficiary’s rights and suspend distributions. If that happens, the beneficiary must be clean for 12 months before receiving money again.
The document goes on to state that a trustee can request a drug test from any suspected abuser. Perez Hilton reports that if a test comes out positive, the suspended distributions can be used to pay for treatment.
The trust also outlines what is to happen when it comes to Hef’s possible future offspring. Because he had such an active and prolific sex life, Hefner clearly defined who his kids were and who isn’t getting any part of his money.

Hugh Hefner disinherited “any person who claims to be a child of mine, including any child of mine conceived after my death, unless such child lived with me in my household and was acknowledged by me in writing to be my child.”
That means that Hef even had his frozen sperm in mind when putting this trust together!
His sons Marston,27, and Cooper, 26, will become co-trustees when they turn 30, despite the potential conflict of interest, because of their knowledge, skill, and relationship to their father.
Hefner established the trust in 1991 and was the initial trustee until his death.
Last month, former playmates, friends, and family gathered in both Los Angeles and Chicago to pay tribute to the man that said he couldn’t have imagined a sweeter life. Chicago Now reports that Cooper opened the Chicago program and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Some of the celebrities and playmates in attendance included Rascal Flatts lead guitarist and singer Joe Don Rooney and his wife Tiffany Fallon (2005 Playmate of the Year), Norman Lear, Barry Gordy Jr., and James Caan.
By the end of the night, a video, featuring a treasure trove of footage from High Hefner’s entire life, started with the song Young at Heart by Jimmy Durante and ended with Joan Baez’s Forever Young.
