Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion Under Health Investigation


Hugh Hefner


Around 100 people who attended a fundraising event at the mansion last week complained of a respiratory problem, which allegedly was caused by the fog machine.

Health officials are investigating Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion over fears the famed property was the source of a recent disease outbreak, according to a new report. Dozens of conference guests who attended a fundraiser at Hefner's Los Angeles residence on February 3 were reportedly struck down by a respiratory infection.

Local reports suggest a fog machine used at the bash could have spread the illness, according to TMZ.com. A number of other venues used for the Domainfest global conference are also being considered by authorities at the Center for Disease Control and the Los Angeles County Health Department.

A guest in attendance said of the disease, "I was wiped out quickly." About 100 people are believed to have contracted the illness, which is being described as something comparable to Legionnaire's Disease.

But a Playboy Mansion representative has shut down the allegations altogether - because others present at the bash have not experienced any symptoms.

The publicist states, "There is no truth in the rumor that anyone caught anything at the Playboy Mansion. Nor is there any evidence. None of the Playboy staff became ill, the deejay was in the middle of the fog and she didn't get ill. We have been contacted by the Health Department and the Playboy Mansion is co-operating fully with the investigation."
