Steve Bing Destroyed Himself
The film producer Steve committed suicide at the age of 55. Bing passed away on June 22, 2020, after jumping from his 27th-floor apartment of the Los Angeles Ten Thousand building.
As per the sources, Steve’s depression and financial issues led him to destroy himself. The multimillionaire businessman Bing was in a relationship with his girlfriend Allexanne Mitchum, Bentley Mitchum‘s daughter. Allexanne died due to an overdose of drugs on July 3, 2019.
Bing, who was planning to start a family with Mitchum, felt guilt over her death. The report claims he had mental health problems and had unclear debts before committing suicide. Upon hearing Steve’s death announcement, the 42nd U.S. President Bill Clinton paid tribute.
Steve shared a good friendship with Bill. He had also contributed an impressive wealth to Clinton Foundation. Tweeting condolence, Bill wrote, “I loved Steve Bing very much. He had a big heart, and he was willing to do anything he could for the people and causes he believed in. I will miss him and his enthusiasm more than I can say, and I hope he’s finally found peace.”

His Relationship With Elizabeth Hurley
Steve was in a brief relationship with Elizabeth Hurley, an English actress who has appeared in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Bedazzled, etc. Steve and Elizabeth were in a brief relationship in 2001.
From the relationship, Elizabeth became pregnant. She gave birth to their son Damian Charles Hurley on April 4, 2002. But, Steve denied being his father. Hurley fought legally to prove Bing as the biological father of her baby. After the nasty legal paternity battle, a DNA report finally proved Damian as Elizabeth and Steve’s son.
The 19-years-old Damian is following in his mother’s footsteps. He has played the character in the primetime soap opera The Royals. Also, Damian is signed by the top international modeling agency, IMG Models.
Damian Hurley And His Half-Sister Kept Away From Inheritance
Besides Damian, Steve also had a daughter Kira, born with former tennis player Lisa Bonder. Like Damian, Kira was also proved by DNA report as Bing’s biological daughter. However, after the tragic demise of the film producer, his two children (Damian and Kira) are disinherited from Bing’s family fortune.
Steve inherited $600 million from his grandfather Leo S. Bing, a real estate developer. Now, after the death of Bing, his father, Dr. Peter Bing, went to court to cut off their inheritance, claiming they were born without ”wedlock.” He also told instead of giving the wealth of ‘grandchildren trust‘ which was set up by him to Damian and Kira, it will apply to Steve’s sister Mary’s daughter Lucy and Anton.
Damian’s mother, Elizabeth, and Kira’s mother, Lisa, also went to court claiming their kid should get an inheritance even if they were born without a marital relationship.
