Hugh Hefner’s former No. 1 girlfriend, Holly Madison, revealed that she had no emotional attachment to him at the time of his death in 2017, following a tumultuous relationship.

She had criticized her time in the Playboy Mansion in her book, “Down the Rabbit Hole,” and chose not to publicly address his passing.

Madison detailed her strained relationship with Hefner, stating that she felt relief after leaving the relationship, and she continues to face criticism for speaking out against him and his empire.

“When he passed away, everybody expected me to have some big reaction or post about it on social media, and it just felt weird, said Madison.

“I didn’t have any emotional attachment to him anymore in any way,” she continued.

Adding, “I’d already come out talking about what a toxic relationship this was for me. Why am I supposed to post a memorial on my Instagram?”

“Before he passed away, there had been maybe five or six years where I just had not spoken to him at all. He had become a completely different character in my mind,” lamented Madison.

“I felt like I had taken myself kind of out of that universe pretty solidly. But it was a really odd time,” she recalled.

“For me, after leaving that relationship, I kind of felt like he had always interacted with me in such a fake way. Because every interaction he had with me was all about control or this fantasy he had of a relationship. It almost felt like playing house in a way,” remembered Madison.

Madison continued and spoke about some of the negative attention she continues to receive.

“There’s still people who want to attack me for telling my truth, even if it has nothing to do with them,” she told People Magazine.

“Just because when you’re coming from the mansion, it’s kind of this high-stakes environment where people attach who they are to this title of being a Playmate or being associated with Playboy, so they don’t ever want to hear a bad word about it. … And it just gets really catty even now with some people, but those people aren’t in my life, so it’s OK.”

Today, she is a mother of two and co-hosts a podcast with former playmate Bridget Marquardt.
