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.

So, what we have learned is that Hef was faithful during the "brief period" of time he was married before her affair.

He also "worked on the marriage" apparently while she didn't.

We have also learned that Hugh just doesn't know how or doesn't seem to care about specifics on money (or is saying this to deflect attention away from it). Anyway, he must have had a good life.

As for the wife cheating on him:
We have a much younger lady who can probably get who she wants yet she marries an older guy who - if he didn't have some money and fame behind him - would most likely not be looked at twice by a lady of her demographic. Often what happens is very predictable.

Either way, who buys Playboy products these days?

Gee, if she doesn't want that $20,000/mo pittance, I'll take it. I would stoop to accepting a mere $240,000 a year. I know, it's hard, but somebody has to do it.

Wow, I knew that was coming for awhile..surely did not realize SHE was living next door to the mansion!!! After all those years of The Show "Girls Next Door" with Holly, Bridget, and Kendra. He probably wants it over as it was a constant reminder of his failure to keep a wife. I can see why with the triple Bimbos living under his roof now. 84 yr old man living/sleeping with 19 - 20 yr olds cries "Sex offender".

This Biotch should be ashamed of herself. She's lucky he didn't divorce her 11 yrs ago, and she should be glad he's been as generous as he has. Most women are lucky if they even get child support.
Greedy Bitch if u ask me!!!

Oh Hef, honey they are all uneducated gold diggers- just because you helped her when she was poor, hair in pony tail, no style fresh in from Canada , doesnt mean she will be nice to you in return as this is their business-
I hope you dont think these woman would be with you if you had an apt in the Valley do you? Its a trade you are old with money and they want your money and lifestyle in exchange YOU want their young flesh- the deals are not smooth- but this is the life you have decided to live- so just roll with it and dont get upset

She will never get enough money to be happy, even if she drains Hef totally dry. What a shame. She looks like an old, worn out woman. Maybe she needs a lot of expensive plastic surgery.
