If anyone wants a part of Hugh Hefner’s inheritance, they need to follow one important rule…

Cosmopolitan is reporting that Hefner mandated that his wife and his four children must maintain sobriety to collect their share.

The document detailing his trust reportedly explains:

“If the trustees reasonably believe that a beneficiary of any trust routinely or frequently uses or consumes any illegal substance so as to be physically or psychologically dependent upon that substance, or is clinically dependent upon the use or consumption of alcohol or any other legal drug or chemical substance that is not prescribed by a board certified medical doctor or psychiatrist in a current program of treatment supervised by such doctor or psychiatrist, and if the Trustees reasonably believe that as a result the beneficiary is unable to care for himself or herself, or is unable to manage his or her financial affairs, all mandatory distributions to the beneficiary, all the beneficiary’s withdrawal rights, and all of the beneficiary’s rights to participate in decisions concerning the removal and appointment of Trustees will be suspended.”

In order to prove that they’re staying clean, the five relatives all must submit to random drug screenings.

Hefner also made it a point to exclude any other potential children he may have from collecting his money. His will states:

“Any person who claims to be a child of mine, including any child of mine conceived after my death, unless such child lived with me in my household and was acknowledged by me in writing to be my child.”

With a $43 million fortune left behind, it’s no wonder Hugh Hefner is taking such precautions.
