One shareholder of Playboy isn’t going to sit back and watch any longer as offers to purchase the enterprise come in and get turned down. A class action lawsuit has been filed blaming founder Hugh Hefner for continuing his expensive lifestyle while his empire falls.

There is an investment company who has analyzed the business and found this: “We think the wild card here is Hugh Hefner. If you were Hugh Hefner, 81, would you give up the parade of busty blondes, the fancy mansion and the reality TV show for a payout?”

In 1999 you could purchase a share of Playboy stock for $36. Today you can get the same stock for a mere $3.14 – far less than the $5.99 it takes to purchase a monthly issue of the magazine.

The shareholders have had enough. The suit goes on to say, “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 girls by his side.”

I has not been revealed (yet) how much the shareholders are looking to gain from the lawsuit. No matter what happens it is a safe bet that Hugh will never have to go without his bevy of babes.
