“I wish the tabloids had informed me a little earlier in the week that I’m sick,” Hefner joked in response to the rumors. “I might have cancelled my weekend plans.”

The magazine mogul looked to be in great health in this movie night snap, posted just an hour before.

A source confirms to ET that despite reports that Hefner was on his death bed, he’s doing just fine.

“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,” the source tells ET.

Hefner isn’t the only one managing the day-to-day activities of Playboy. In July, his son Cooper returned as the company’s Chief Creative Officer.
