Hugh Hefner Accused of Screwing Playboy

2/8/2010 9:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hugh HefnerHugh Hefner has been sued for living the good life and refusing to give it up for the sake of his company.

We've obtained a class action lawsuit filed by a Playboy shareholder who claims the company is falling apart and Hugh has intentionally sabotaged two potential deals in the last 6 months to sell the company at a decent price.

In the lawsuit, an investment company that analyzed Playboy's business sent a note stating "we think the wildcard here is Hugh Hefner." The note continues, "If you were Hugh Hefner, 81, would you give up the parade of busty blonds, the fancy mansion and the reality TV show for a payout?"

The suit goes on ... "Hefner has continued to live the good life and make sure everyone knows it. Hefner remains in the limelight, showing up at media events and at the Playboy mansion ... with his girlfriends by his side."

The suit laments, "Today, the price of a Playboy magazine is far higher than the price of Playboy common stock." In 1999, the stock sold for $36 a share. Today Playboy closed at $3.14. The magazine sells for $5.99 ... because of the articles.

The plaintiffs say Hefner runs roughshod over the shareholders and they want unspecified damages.

If there were pics of naked women on the stock certificates, I might buy a few shares.

Dear Scott at 8:09 pm...

Hugh Hefner doesn't actually bang 18 year old women anymore.

They put him alone in a room with 18 year old women, and then they TELL him he banged them.

Poor Hef doesn't know the difference.

I just hope the cameras keep rolling when finances force a move from the mansion and the show becomes "Next Trailer Girls."

Guess what? It is his company; his creation. It goes down when he goes down, and obviously he still like to kick it a little bit.

Hugh Hefner can call me anytime. Respect for the memories and thanks for the show!

I always wanted to be a bunny...

Guess what... There wouldn't be a Playboy with out Hugh Hefner. His idea, his format, his name. If he doesn't want to sell then everyone is just gonna have to wait for him to die. Deal with it.
