The 10-part series, which premiered in the US on Monday, saw former Playmate and The Girls Next Door alum Holly Madison speak of a stash of photos of the girls.

Holly, who dated Hugh Hefner from 2001 to 2008, said she was "afraid" to leave the Playboy Mansion, knowing Hugh allegedly had "a mountain of revenge porn waiting to come out".

In the documentary, she says she considered suicide, E! News reports, but found a new "sense of purpose" when she landed her The Girls Next Door gig.

Crystal Hefner, another former Playmate who went on to marry Hugh Hefner in 2012 and became his widow when he died in 2017, has since taken to social media, addressing and confirming Holly's claims.

She tweeted on Tuesday: "I found thousands of those disposable camera photos you are talking about @hollymadison. I immediately ripped them up and destroyed every single one of them for you and the countless other women in them. They're gone."
