Hugh Hefner’s butler claims girlfriends 'slept with Playboy staff behind his back'
| Last updated
Oh, what a nightmare when your multiple ‘girlfriends’ start getting off with your staff.
It must be so hard to keep track when you’ve got so many women that are ‘yours’ as well as people to serve your every, other, need.
In his famous home, ‘Hef’ lived with his famous ‘Bunnies'. There were parties and events, from tennis to drinks receptions, which celebrities would often attend.
So unsurprisingly, Hefner had plenty of staff to keep the place ticking away.
And now one of his former butlers has spilled some of the tea.
Bryant Horowitz was the robe-wearing man’s butler from 1997 until 2016 and confirmed a rumour during a recent appearance on the Girls Next Level podcast.
Host Holly Madison said: “I heard one of the girlfriends was having an affair with one of the butlers and they had sex on the tiger-skin couch.”
And ever the gentleman, Horowitz said: “Yes, that is true - but I’m not naming any names.”
He was also asked if there was any truth in the rumour that one of Hefner’s ‘girlfriends’ had an affair with a security guard.
Confirming it, the butler said: “That also is true. There have been instances of that going on but those people did not last 18 years.”
At the tycoon’s parties, staff were totally forbidden from ‘fraternising’ with either residents or guests at the Playboy Mansion.
Horowitz said: “There was a pretty stern don’t fraternise with the girls rule. That was the big rule, that you don’t fraternise with the guests.”
But that didn’t necessarily stop the flirting from the Playmates and girlfriends, with Horowitz explaining: “Sometimes if they had drinks they would be coming in [to the kitchen] and things like that but I would try to remain as professional as possible and keep my distance.”
He does admit that he couldn’t completely help himself from getting somewhat involved though.
Getting close to the party guests was just too tempting for Horowitz as he added: “There was one actress there that wanted to date me, and we did for a couple of months… but not a playmate.
“I was there for 18 years. If anything had happened I wouldn’t have been there that long.”
