Hugh Hefner Pulls Trigger on Marriage

9/9/2009 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hugh Hefner After eleven years of estrangement from his wife, Hugh Hefner finally made the move to end his marriage to former Playmate Kimberley Conrad.

On Friday, Hefner filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court seeking to dissolve their marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences." The docs say they were married on July 1, 1989 and have been separated since January 12, 1998.

Hefner had been supporting Kimberly and their two sons, who have been living in the house next door to the Playboy mansion.

But things got rocky this year when Hef sold that house, and then Conrad sued Hef -- accusing him of screwing her out of more than five million bucks.

UPDATE: In the docs, Hugh is asking the judge to set spousal support at $20,000 per month -- justifying such a small amount by saying he's already given Kimberly close to $12 million since their 1998 separation.

The old man has made millions off of women for years ,it's time to turn the tables! Most of the women he made the millions off are now dead or destitute. She needs half of the assets!

Who in the world needs $20,000.00 a month to live on-seriously. Dang-she was smart to marry rich! I would love to not work and make that kind of bank! DAAAAAAAAAAAAANG!

Oh-and putting his financial business on blast is pretty tacky TMZ!

This obsolete glossy dirty pic relic has wasted too much of his dwindling fortune on airhead golddigger blondes who are not even the best in bed. He needs to diversify his taste in women to get the best poontang. Variety is the spice of not just life, but also lust.

These whores marry these rich guys and think they're in it for love. Don't know who's more stupid....but in this case, I think it's Hef. Why marry them when he can just screw them?

I agree with "The Source" about the reason for the divorce being now after all these years. Maybe his health is bad and he knows something others do not besides the fact that he is just old. The reason for him supporting her all these years was obviously because she was the mother of his children and now that they are old enough to go away to college why continue to give her a free ride. He is willing to pay her 20k a month. That is a lot of money for the people of the general population. I think she can survive on it. I survive on a lot less per month. I guess he does not want her to inherit the fortune if he dies since the marriage was on paper alone with no actual relationship between them.

Wait... How was the sale legal? Sure, a husband can buy a house without his wife's signiture, but it usually takes the signitures of all owners to sell a house.

...Hugh Hefner is married?

I think he divided the number of times she gave him sex into the amount of money he gave
her and decided that this is NUTS....no woman is worth that....and decided to end it.
This is yet another one of many, many reasons not to marry a California woman...no way, no how.
All the good looking ones are gold diggers....ask James Caan.

Hoping with all my heart that he and Holly will get back together and marry. I have always believed that she really loved him, and vice-versa.
