When Hugh Hefner passed away at the age of 91, he left behind many memories of suave style, crazy antics, and a deeply debatable legacy. Many have called him an iconic figure of American society, others say he was a misogynist who caused irreparable damage to women's rights.

Not only is his history under a veil of controversy, it seems the future of his estate is as well.

The founder of the hugely popular magazine on pop culture, intellectual content, and of course, nude women, was believed to have amassed around $43 million dollars in net worth at the time of his passing.

It wasn't the richest he had ever been though. In fact, the wealth of this late celebrity peaked in 1999 when the Playboy stock was worth $250 million. Still, considering he began the company with only $8,000 he probably wasn't too unhappy in the later years of his life.

The question is: who gets to keep what is left?
