Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has slammed reports that he is unwell. Many reports were making rounds that he is extremely sick.

The 90-year-old took to his Twitter account to clear the rumours. He tweeted: "I wish the tabloids had informed me a little earlier in the week that I'm sick. I might have cancelled my weekend plans."

Adding on, he also posted a picture with his wife, American model/television personality Crystal Harris. He wrote: "Tonight's Mansion movie is the classic western, 'Shane.'"

According to ET, Hefner's health is fine. A source said: "It's no secret that over the past few years he has suffered with back pain that has made it a bit more challenging for him to get around, but at 90 years of age, he is enjoying his life, and is still very involved in the day-to-day activities of editing the magazine."

Previously, Harris had revealed that she does not notice the 60-year age difference between her and Hefner. She told Access Hollywood: "Hef's very romantic, very cozy. We really care about each other and get along great. I don't notice the age difference. Hef's a lot of fun."
