HUGH Hefner had so much cocaine in his Playboy mansion that a pal’s poodle got addicted to it.
The dog’s drug habit got so bad he was locked away during parties as he’d try to lick guests’ noses for a fix.
The revelation is made by Sondra Theodore — an ex-girlfriend of the late sex magnate — in a new TV documentary.
The American actress and model claims the mutt got addicted after dipping his nose into the “huge vials” of white powder dotted around the infamous property in Los Angeles.
Sondra, 65, says: “There were drugs everywhere.
“John Dante was Hef’s best friend. He had a dog Louis — and this tiny poodle got hooked on cocaine.
The dog could smell it from across the room. He had to lock that dog up when people were around.
“A very famous person walked into the house one night and that dog jumped off the couch and was licking her up the nose.
“She goes: ‘He just loves me.’ We knew why that dog was on her.”
In Secrets of Playboy, which begins in the US on the A&E Network on January 24, Hugh’s former assistant confirms that drugs were rife.
Lisa Loving Barrett, who worked for Hefner from 1977 to 1989, says: “Cocaine was a big deal.”
She recalls that at a couple of the larger parties a pile of the Class A drug was under a toilet paper holder in a downstairs loo.
Hugh lived in the mansion with a bevy of girlfriends from 1974 until his death in 2017 at 91.
The publisher was famed for Playboy magazine and for throwing wild parties at the property, attended by rich and famous guests.
Sondra spoke on the new A and E Network TV series Secrets of Playboy, which begins airing Monday, January 24 at 9pm ET/PT.
The ten part series by A&E explores the hidden realities behind the fable and philosophy of the Playboy empire in the documentary event series Across ten hours, the series delves into the complex world Hugh Hefner created.
