Hugh Hefner Drops $5 Million on House for 27-Year-Old Wife Crystal Harris

Exclusive 0514_crystal_harris_hollywood_hills_home_launchHugh Hefner really loves his 27-year-old Playmate wife Crystal Harris … we”re told he”s created an intricate plan to set her up in a multi-million dollar estate, where no one in his world can displace her once he dies … but there is one hitch.

Hef plunked down $5 million last month for a 5,900-square-foot Hollywood Hills mansion, which is held in trust for the 2 of them.  Short story — Crystal owns the house with him.

Playboy sources tell us … the couple is happily living at the Playboy Mansion, and they have no plans to move.  So why, you ask, did they buy the Hollywood Hills home  Fact is … Hef is a renter!  He doesn”t own the Playboy Mansion … it”s owned by Playboy Enterprises.

We”re told the 87-year-old perennial player wants to make sure Crystal has a roof over her head when he”s gone, and the Hollywood Hills estate fits the bill.

As for the one hitch — it”s if they get unhitched.  Then Hef will either give her the house, buy her out, or fight it out in court. 

BTW … the house has 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, an infinity pool and sick views — perfect for a young widow.
