TMZ reported that Steve took his own life, with police officers called to his luxury apartment building in Los Angeles.
Steve was the founder of the Shangri-La Entertainment Hotel after he fell out of Stanford to pursue a career in Hollywood following his grandfather’s nearly $ 600 million legacy.
His first big budget success came when he was the executive producer of Sylvester Stallone, a film, Get Carter, in 2000.
In her private life, her relationship with Liz Hurley is the main talking point.
They met in 2000, when Steve was 35 and Liz was 36. He wooed her with private jets, chunky gold Rolex watches, sapphire and diamond rings and all expense paid trips to New York and Europe .
But beyond the glare both Liz and her friends said she was “very in love” with the director, and they had a son, Damian, who is now 18 years old.
After a brief split in March 2001, the couple were said to be more serious than ever, spending all their time together in their luxury suite at the Bel-Air Hotel and vacationing in Elton John, villa in Nice, in August – where Liz is said to have designed it.
But instead of uniting with each other, baby news has sparked one of the worst paternity feuds in Hollywood.
Liz was “deeply upset” when Steve made a wild statement suggesting that the child was not his.
“Mrs. Hurley and I was not in an exclusive relationship when she became pregnant. It is his choice to be a single mother, “he said before vowing to be” extremely involved and responsible “if he was found to be the father.
Liz wasted no time knocking back, arguing that, for her, at least, the novel had been a monogamous one.
“I loved Stephen very much during the 18 months that we were together. Unlike a false report, we were still very happy together when I found out that I was pregnant, “she said.
“I have been completely loyal and loyal to Stephen all this time, as, in fact, he assured me that he was mine. ”
