Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Damian shared a photo of a sunset peaceful while sharing his thoughts and feelings after the death of his father.
He wrote: “I Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has reached in the wake of the terrible news.
“I’m going to try to respond to as many of you as I can, but please know that I will always remember your kindness.
“It is very strange and confusing time and I am extremely grateful to be surrounded by my incredible family and friends.”
A few Moments earlier, the mother of Damian shared a series of photos of herself with Steve on his own Instagram feed with a heartfelt tribute to the man of business.
She wrote: “I am saddened beyond belief that my ex Steve is no longer with us. It is a terrible end.
“Our time together was very happy and I post these pictures because even though we went through difficult times, it is a good, wonderful memories of a gentle, kind man in the know.
“Last year we had become close again. We talked the last time about our son of 18 years of age. This is devastating news and I thank everyone for their beautiful messages.”
Elizabeth and Steve enjoyed a romance in the early years of the century.
The former couple are believed to have dated in 2000 and welcomed their son in 2002, after they had been separated.
On Monday, TMZ reported that Steve had been “depressed” about being isolated and the lack of human contact during the coronavirus lock, but it is currently difficult to know if it had something to do with his apparent suicide.
