Madison became his “#1 Girl” in February 2002, after all but two of his girlfriends had gone. Madison expressed her desire to marry Hefner and have his children throughout her time with him. In a May 2008 interview at the Playmate of the Year luncheon, Hefner stated, “I adore Holly and believe we’ll spend the rest of our lives together, but marriage isn’t part of my plan. It’s not a personal issue; I’ve just had a bad experience with weddings.” Madison has alleged that her affections for Hefner were caused by Stockholm syndrome during her time at the house.
