The Truth About Marilyn Monroe and Hugh Hefner's Relationship
Hugh Hefner has been laid to rest next to iconic sex symbol Marilyn Monroe, but the real question is: why? Did the two have a steamy romance that no one knew about? Were they friends? Or did Hugh just have a thing for blondes (which we all know to be true)? Well, it's a little more complicated than you'd expect, but the short answer is that Hugh loved Marilyn - even if they never met! Hugh purchased the crypt next to Marilyn's burial site in Westwood Village Memorial Park back in 1992 for $72,000. It was because of his love for the movie star and her influence on his career, not because they were ever romantically involved . . . or even friends, for that matter. "I'm a believer in things symbolic," Hugh told the magazine back in 2009. "Spending eternity next to Marilyn is too sweet to pass up." RelatedHugh Hefner's Playmate Love Interests In
