Cooper Hefner, heir to the Playboy fortune, has come to the defense of his famous dad, Hugh Hefner.
The 23-year-old Playboy heir took to Twitter to defend claims made by Holly Madison in her new memoir, “Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny.”
In the tell-all memoir, Madison made claims that she suffered emotional and verbal abuse while she was dating Hefner and living in the Playboy Mansion.
Just days ago 89-year-old Hefner accused Madison of “rewriting history,” reports Us Weekly.
E! Online shared a statement released by Hefner earlier this week, wherein the mogul clearly calls out Madison for her claims in the book. He states that he has maintained friendships with many of his ex-lovers, but that “there a few who have chosen to rewrite history in an attempt to stay in the spotlight.”
Over the course of my life I’ve had more than my fair share of romantic relationships with wonderful women. Many moved on to live happy, healthy and productive lives, and I’m pleased to say remain dear friends today. Sadly, there are a few who have chosen to rewrite history in an attempt to stay in the spotlight. I guess, as the old saying goes: You can’t win ’em all!
Jumping to his father’s defense, Cooper pulls no punches in his Tweets aimed at the former Playboy-turned-author. Cooper accuses Madison of being a “gold digger” who painted herself “as a victim of a relationship they aggressively sought out for” and referred to her and others as a “Justice League type group of wonderfully sh—y people.”
How does a person who is famous for being a gold digger paint themselves as a victim of a relationship they aggressively sought out for?

Madison has not responded to Cooper’s Tweets.
This is not the first time – and won’t be the last – that celebrities take their fights to public social media platforms and the internet. Just days ago, rapper 50 Cent posted a viral video poking fun at Rick Ross’s recent arrest.
