Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner died at the age of 91 three years ago after selling his empire to billionaire investor Daren Metropoulos.

Hugh started his life out as a copy-writer for Esquire but branched out on his own after being denied a pay rise.

A year later, Hugh launched his own men’s magazine, Playboy, with Marilyn Monroe on the front cover.

Hef continued to capitalise on the brand for more than 50 years and installed himself in the Hollywood showbiz social scene.

He died at the age of 91 three years ago this weekend.

The initial Playboy headquarters was in Chicago, but he set up the Playboy mansion in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles in 1971.

His multimillion-dollar mansion became known for its raunchy and wild parties, which attracted some of the most famous faces, including Elvis Presley.

Elvis was among the regular visitors that stopped by the mansion in the 1970s and reportedly spend a night with eight bunnies.

After his stay at the mansion, Hef sealed off the room The King stayed in and rebranded it the Elvis Suite.

It's said the singer was only allowed to stay in that room and it remained closed off even after his death.

Beatles legend John Lennon was also among the faces invited to the mansions and the musician reportedly made a drunken mistake.

He is said to have taken a masterpiece off of the wall and stubbed his cigarette out on it.

It caused a stir, but Hef forgave the star and invited him back afterwards, restoring the painting to its former glory.

Hef also had his own zoo installed on the property – even getting a special permit to keep the exotic animals.

Tragedy struck after one particularly raucous party at the mansion when the next day, one of Hef's beloved llamas was found dead.

The animal's body was discovered by grounds workers the following morning – it has never been revealed how the animal died.

The mansion's luxurious swimming pool was often the focus of the Playboy parties, especially the grotto which housed a private hot tub.

Waters were regularly filled with bikini-clad women and rowdy party guests all out for a good time.

However, the fun came to an abrupt halt after one party in 2011 when 120 party-goers mysteriously fell ill afterwards and were all suffering the same strange symptoms.

It was later found the waters were contaminated with bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ disease, a form of pneumonia.
