10/21/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Playboy Mansion is known for its epic Halloween parties, but turns out rich kids in the neighborhood like Paris Hilton door-knocked on fright night ... 'cause it was the best candy in town. 

Paris was leaving the Delilah opening in WeHo Thursday night when she dropped a living paradox known as Hugh Hefner.

Turns out Hef had some stiff competition, from someone with an even bigger mansion.

Model Katie May's Death Coroner Finds ... Chiropractor Did It

10/19/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017-katie-may-INSTAGRAM-01Playboy model Katie May died from a simple visit to a chiropractor for an adjustment, which ultimately left her with a fatal tear to an artery in her neck ... according to the L.A. County Coroner.

TMZ obtained a copy of Katie's death certificate, and it clears up a huge mystery surrounding her sudden death in February. The document says she died when a blunt force injury tore her left vertebral artery, and cut off blood flow to her brain. 

It also says the injury was sustained during a "neck manipulation by chiropractor." Her death is listed as accidental.

As TMZ first reported, Katie -- known as the "Queen of Snapchat" -- had taken a nasty fall during a photo shoot. She thought she had a pinched nerve and went to an L.A. chiropractor on Friday. She suffered a stroke on Monday, and remained on life support until Thursday.

Katie's family is aware of the coroner's findings. They would not comment on whether they or her estate would pursue legal action.

Does it matter? No, because they both look exactly the same with their tops on or off.

Playmate of the Year Dumps NBA Fiance ... Blames Social Media

10/5/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1004_jeff_withey_Kennedy-Summers_getty_instagramSad news ... the NBA player who was called out on Instagram for allegedly cheating on his Playboy Playmate girlfriend ... has been dumped for good. 

You remember the story ... 2014 Playmate of the Year Kennedy Summers put Utah Jazz center Jeff Withey on blast back in June when she found out he took someone else on a movie date behind her back. 

Somehow, Jeff won her back and they got engaged the following month. 

1004-jeff-witey-kennedy-summer-instagrma_subBut now, their relationship has hit a roadblock once again -- with Kennedy calling the whole thing off ... citing "many issues." We're told jealousy was a factor. 

In fact, Kennedy's rep, Zack Teperman, issued a statement saying social media played a huge role in the split.

"While it has its many pros, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc. can also create many issues within a relationship. The negative effects of social media have claimed yet another couple."

Kennedy -- a 3rd year medical student -- has already moved out of the couple's home.

Hef posted this pic with wife Crystal Friday night, shooting down rumors like the cowboy on the screen.

Playmate Ashley Mattingly Arrested for Drunken Joyride

10/1/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927-ashley-mattingly-mug-no-wm-no-blue-dot-lbpd-01Former Playmate Ashley Mattingly was arrested for suspicion of DUI after allegedly plowing her golf cart into 4 parked cars, but she's not willing to accept blame.

According to a witness, Mattingly wrecked last weekend while tooling around her Laguna Beach neighborhood. Cops tell us the witness snapped pics, which they used to trace the vehicle back to Ashley. When they got to her house, we're told she appeared to be under the influence, and arrested her.

0927-playboy-golf-cart-sub-asset-TMZ-01Ashley has a different story though -- she tells us someone stole her golf cart and went on a joyride. She adds she wouldn't have answered the door if she had anything to hide from cops. 

As for the DUI -- Ashley admits she does mix extra strong drinks at home sometimes ... which doesn't seem like the greatest defense. That giant gash on her face might also be tough to explain away.

0930-hugh-hefner-tmzLaw enforcement rushed to the Playboy Mansion Friday ... when rumors swirled Hugh Hefner may have died. 

Several news agencies, including TMZ, got a tip the Playboy king had passed away. We called law enforcement to confirm or shoot down the story ... and we were told they were unaware of a death at the Mansion.

We've learned earlier today, cops went to the bunny house and spoke with staff members who said Hef's health remained unchanged. A staff member told Hef the police had come to check on him and he then personally called cops to say he was okay.

Hef has been in frail health over the last few years ... and rarely comes out of his bedroom.

Playmate Dani Mathers Not Interested in Learning from Her Mistakes ... Anti-bullying Org Claims

9/17/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0916-dani-mathers-INSTAGRAM-01Dani Mathers cozied up to an anti-cyberbullying group after her despicable body shaming incident in an L.A. gym, but went radio silent when it came time to do any work ... according to the organization.

Cure the Hate tells TMZ they first reached out to Mathers after she made headlines for posting a photo of the unsuspecting woman -- but only heard back when police turned up the heat on her.

TMZ broke the story ... cops found Mathers' victim and earlier this month recommended she be prosecuted. Cure the Hate says that's when Mathers said she wanted to partner up ... but they now believe it was just lip service.

The org says they followed up with her 7 times, but never heard a peep. Cure the Hate thinks Mathers' actions, or lack thereof, show she's not serious about making good after the incident.

We reached out to her, but never heard back.

Interestingly, after we called Mathers she finally called Cure the Hate on Friday ... only to say she was taking a pass.

As for the likely charge ... we're told it's Dissemination of Private Images, a misdemeanor punishable by 6 months in jail. The L.A. City Attorney is reviewing the case and will make a decision soon.

The surreptitious photo shoot triggered outrage in the gym community and beyond. Mather's captioned the pic, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

Exclusive Details

0729-playboy-mansion-getty-01Hugh Hefner can officially slap a "SOLD" sign onto his Playboy Mansion, and then head back inside for dinner ... after hammering out a deal with the PBR heir who almost lost it 11 days ago. 

The escrow closed Tuesday for Hef's neighbor Daren Metropoulos -- and we're told it went for a final price of $100 million ... a nice discount off the $110 mil offer Daren nearly closed earlier this month

We're told the compromise was lower price, but Hef gets to maintain access to the home for the rest of his life. Bottom line: Daren can't pop over whenever he wants. However, as the new landlord ... he does get to approve all parties at the mansion.

Daren -- a master re-brander of products and the Pabst Blue Ribbon heir -- who's been living next door since 2009 has already given the thumbs-up to Playboy's Midsummer Night's Dream Party next Saturday ... and the annual Halloween bash.

We're told he plans to connect the adjacent home he owns with the Playboy Mansion and restore both estates to their original versions. Daren was represented by Coldwell Banker agent Jade Mills & Mauricio Umansky represented Playboy.
