In accord with the prenup, Crystal didn't get access to the estate. She did, however, inherit a Hollywood Hills house, which she listed in 2018 for $7.2 million. Hugh is thought to have paid around $5 million for the luxury home in 2013. Crystal also received $7 million in cash, according to The Sun.

Crystal Hefner recently shocked fans by debuting a new look on Instagram.

Crystal announced that she was eager to switch things up and stop catering to the fans' expectations in an Instagram post on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2022.

"Over five years, my account has shifted from not always safe for work posts to my real safe for work life. The real me. I was living for other people before, to make others happy, suffering internally in the process," she wrote.

"As most of you know, I grew my following during my Playboy years. Certain photos grow followings fast. In short, sex sells. I don’t know whether I felt empowered by dressing scantily clad, showing cleavage, etc., or if I just felt it was expected of me."

"Now I can confidently and 100 percent proudly say, modesty is what empowers me these days, and because it feels so much better internally, it will probably be this way for the rest of my life," she added.

"⁣I removed everything fake from my body and deleted all my old photos. I am more authentic, vulnerable and feel that I belong more to myself. I am mine.⁣⁣"
