STEVE Bing reportedly wrote farewell notes to his son Damian Hurley and daughter before jumping to death last week.
Multimillionaire producer Steve wrote a suicide note in the hours before his death to his 18-year-old son Damien, television personality Billy Bush said, according to the Mirror.
Steve was found outside a luxury apartment building in Century City, California at 1:00 p.m. Monday, June 22.
He committed suicide after years of depression and financial hardship, reports say.
Damian’s mother, model and actress Elizabeth Hurley, went out with the 55-year-old man in 2001.
Billy revealed that Bing left “a note for each child” – including a letter to his 21-year-old daughter, Kira Kerkorian Bing, whom he had with tennis player Lisa Bonder.
He explained, “I have friends who were friends with him. Steve had a depression with a capital D.
“The whole coronavirus problem was certainly a factor. It really bothered him.
“Another source told me that he was very depressed. Close friends are shocked by his death. Sources told Extra that he suffered from bipolar disorder. “
The Los Angeles County medical examiner’s office said on Tuesday that the death was the result of multiple blunt trauma by suicide.
Bing was best known as an investor in films like The Polar Express and Beowulf, and he was also credited as a producer in the remake of Sylvester Stallone Get Carter.
He dropped out of Stanford University at the age of 18 after receiving a $ 600 million inheritance from a property developer grandfather and then co-founded media company Shangri-La Entertainment.
According to the Mirror, Billy added: “I spoke to some of his friends and they were shocked that he had moved from downtown to Beverly Hills.
“He was a lonely guy, and then he went to the most social building in Beverly Hills, with famous lawyers, rappers and all kinds of people there. And there were money problems. ”
Despite Bing’s external success, friends said he was “going through a dark period for years,” reported PageSix.
He would have denied being the father of Damian, born in 2002, until a DNA test confirmed his paternity.
