Hugh Hefner’s son Marston and his daughter Christie visited the home of the Playboy mogul’s second wife, Kimberly Conrad, just two days after his death.

Marston, 27, who is the oldest child of Hefner and Conrad, was dressed in a black T-shirt, jeans and brown shoes, as he walked to the Westwood, California, home.

Christie, 64, who is Hefner’s oldest child by his first wife, Mildred Williams, was seen wearing a black sweater, black pants and heeled boots. She was accompanied by two unknown people as she crossed the street. 

Hefner’s two other children, Cooper, 26, and David, 62, were nowhere to be seen.

The founder of Playboy passed away on Wednesday at the age of 91 after contracting a bug two weeks prior, according to TMZ.

 Heartbreaking footage has emerged of Hefner inside the Playboy Mansion just months before he died, showing him looking extremely frail and using a walker as a carer.

Hefner can be seen in his home in Holmby Hills,California, with unkempt gray hair and wearing light blue pajamas. 

The video of the late founder of Playboy magazine was taken in January of this year after he had just entertained guests at the Mansion on one of his regular movie nights.

In a three-second clip, a female guest is heard saying ‘Wonderful movie’ as Hefner walks towards a pair of French double doors.

The images are further proof of the the rapid health decline Hefner was facing and his reported reluctance to remain away from the spotlight.

Hefner had reportedly been suffering a crippling back infection for two years, was bedridden and could barely walk without assistance.

The last believed picture of Hefner in circulation was taken on June 16 this year, on Father’s Day, showing him playing backgammon with sons, Cooper and Marston.

All four of Hefner’s grieving children raised a toast as they gathered in a California restaurant to remember their Playboy mogul father just hours after his death. 

His sons Cooper, Marston, and David joined their sister Christie for the memorial dinner at the Japanese restaurant Katsuya in Brentwood, California, last night.

It appeared that Hefner’s 31-year-old wife Crystal Harris was not invited to the meal.

In recent years, Cooper had taken responsibility for the running of Playboy magazine while his brother Marston, a writer, has shied away from involvement in the family business.

Hefner’s eldest son David has stayed completely out of the limelight throughout his life, the opposite of his sister Christie. She served as the chairman and CEO of Playboy Enterprises from 1988 to 2009 – and Cooper says he frequently consults her for business advice.

The somber family gathering came just hours after the Playboy founder, the pipe-smoking hedonist who revved up the sexual revolution in the 1950s and built a multimedia empire of clubs, mansions, movies and television, symbolized by bow-tied women in bunny costumes, died at the age 91.

Hefner died of natural causes at his home surrounded by family on Wednesday night, Playboy said in a statement.

The family could be seen raising a glass in honor of their father, speaking to each other outside the restaurant and making their way into a white car after their meal.  

Hefner’s body was driven away from his Playboy mansion early Thursday morning to begin the journey to his final resting place next to Marilyn Monroe.  

Cooper took over as creative director for the company in recent years and hoped to translate the rebellious nature Playboy had in its early days to his younger generation.

A true millennial, Cooper wanted to make the brand more accessible to his demographic of chronic Instagram and Twitter users. A frequent poster himself, his social media pages give a glimpse into the life of the prince of Playboy. 

Hefner was always vocal about wanting both his sons to be involved in continuing his legacy with Playboy.

‘My dad was public about wanting us to run the organization together, but it became evident as we got older that it was not something that spoke to [Marston],’ Cooper said.

As Cooper grew older, the similarities to his father continued to develop. However, as the youngest of Hugh’s four children, Cooper felt compelled to carve out a niche of his own.

Like his father, Cooper he decided to enlist in the military. In January 2017 he joined the California State Military Reserve. Hefner was an infantry clerk in the army in the 1940s, and spent his free time doodling cartoons for the military newspapers – which peaked his interest in journalism.

In a statement about Hefner’s passing, Cooper said: ‘My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom.

‘He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand, one of the most recognizable and enduring in history.

‘He will be greatly missed by many, including his wife Crystal, my sister Christie and my brothers David and Marston, and all of us at Playboy Enterprises.’ 

It was yesterday reported that Hefner’s wife Crystal Harris will inherit nothing due to an ironclad prenup that means she was never added to his will.

The couple, who shared a 60-year age gap, tied the knot on New Year’s Eve in 2012 at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. Before the nuptials, Harris was said to have signed an ‘ironclad’ prenuptial agreement.

A source told US Weekly that while the blonde beauty will be taken care of, she won’t receive a penny of his fortune.

Instead, his estimated $43million estate, will be divided between his four children, the University of Southern California and a list of charities.

That number doesn’t take into account the Playboy Mansion which was sold in 2016 for $100million.

The $43million figure was first revealed back in 2009 when Hefner divorced his second wife Kimberly Conrad.

At his peak, the Playboy magnate was worth upwards of $200million, but as the magazine’s popularity tanked, Hefner lost millions.

By the time of his death the 91-year-old held 35 percent of the Playboy brand and still completely owned the magazine.

He had $36million worth of stocks and bonds and $6million in a joint account with an unnamed person.

His monthly earnings from the magazine only totaled $100,000, with the rest coming from his pension.
