Los Angeles: Model Holly Madison "spent too many years" being afraid of Playboy boss Hugh Hefner, but insists she won't be silenced now.
The former Playboy model, who earlier claimed in her new memoir "Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny" that she was mentally and emotionally abused while living with her former lover and his other girlfriends, says she doesn't care that he has denied her allegations, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I won't let myself be afraid of him. I spent too many years like that," Madison told InTouch magazine.
"(Hefner) has no mental or emotional power over me anymore. I walked away from that seven years ago (when I left the mansion). He is completely out of my life now," the 35-year-old added.
