Hugh Hefner's Loves & Hookups

All of Hugh Hefner's past and present girlfriends and wives. Hefner dated tons of women, most of them bunnies who he discovered. This long list of lovers and exes covers an entire lifespan yet the women seem to always be young. One of many famous celebs who married much younger women, Hugh Hefner has only been married a couple times but he's dated continuously. Not that it's unexpected, but some of the gorgeous women on Hugh's arm have been caught on celebrity "tapes" with other high-profile men. Kendra Wilkinson, for example, is high on the list of such celeb tapes and is no stranger to the attention. As of now, Hef himself has not been in the middle of a celebrity tape scandal, but who knows what the wily old man will get up to next? Here are all the playmates Hefner's been official with (who knows how many are "unofficial").

At age 86, Hugh Hefner married 26-year-old model Crystal Harris, who was still his wife upon his passing in 2017. Other notable Hugh Hefner partners include Holly Madison, Shannon Tweed, and Bridget Marquardt.
