The blond bombshell says she rather conveniently (a little too conveniently, actually) found Hef's will in his bedroom after she decided to leave him and, in turn, her life in the famous Playboy Mansion. The will, she said, promised her $3 million if she stayed with him.
"It was very clear to me that he'd left that out for me to see, because he was hoping it would change my mind and get me to stay," she said during an interview for Oprah Winfrey's "Where Are They Now?" special. "It just kinda disgusted me more than anything because all he can do is say, 'Oh, here, I'm gonna throw you some money to get you to stay.' It just grossed me out."
The former Playboy model and the magazine founder famously dated for seven years, but the two have been feuding since Holly released her memoir earlier this year, "Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny." The book is highly critical of the 89-year-old magazine magnate and their relationship.
"The only thing he ever gave me is a little bit of fame," she wrote. "Fame is not always worth it."
In the book, she alleges that life in the mansion was one that involved drug use and backstabbing. At one point she claimed she was so miserable that she contemplated suicide. Kendra Wilkinson, Holly's former "The Girls Next Door" costar, has claimed the book is "full of lies."
Holly has maintained that everything she has said is true.
"Hef and I started hitting kind of a rocky patch when it became clear that Bridget [Marquardt] and Kendra were leaving, they were moving on to new things," she told Oprah. "I just had enough and just realized all these delusions I'd been under and that this was no longer the life for me."
She ended up moving to Las Vegas, where she eventually met and married music mogul Pasquale Rotella in Sept. 2013. The two have one child, 2-year-old Rainbow Aurora.
