Byline: NATALIE EVANS and JAMES RODGER

PLAYBOY founder Hugh Hefner was reportedly laid to rest next to Marilyn Monroe in a private funeral ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Hef, who leaves behind Black Country widow Crystal Harris, died on Wednesday aged 91.

According to the Mirror , he was laid to rest next to Hollywood icon Marilyn in the space he purchased 25 years ago.

Hef bought the burial spot on the left next to Marilyn for $75,000 in 1992, according to TMZ . The Some Like It Hot star was laid to rest there in 1962 after her death at the age of 36.

Crystal, 31, has been left with a luxury Hollywood Hills home AND millions in the bank following Hef 's death. The West Bromwich model has been left with $5 million and a 5,900 square foot pad - complete with four bedrooms, five baths and an infinity pool.

It had previously been claimed Crystal wouldn't get a penny in inheritance following his death as the couple signed an iron-clad prenuptial agreement before they married back in 2013. Hef's $43 million fortune will be divided among his four children, the University of Southern California, as well as a list of charities the star supported.

The ultra-modern house, which is now reportedly worth $7 million, comes complete with a cinema room, huge kitchen and a large outdoor swimming pool, the Mirror reported.

Harris - Playboy's Miss December in 2009 - met Hef at his annual mansion Halloween party, where, dressed as a French maid, she caught his eye.

Crystal was modelling at the time and doing a psychology degree, but soon packed in the studies after hitting it off with Hef. Hefner announced he would tie the knot with his Black Country fiancee some six years ago.

Before moving her family to America, Crystal's mum Lee Lovitt used to run the West Bromwich pub Ye Olde Rose And Crown.

When the wedding was announced she said: "I will be happy to see Crystal and Hef marry - as long as my daughter is happy, I am happy."

Hefner had married Mildred Williams in 1949 and they divorced 10 years later.

He then married Playmate Kimberly Conrad in 1989. They also separated 10 years later.
