Liz Hurley pays tribute to ‘sweet, kind’ ex-partner Steve Bing

Elizabeth Hurley has paid tribute to the father of her teenage son and ex-partner Steve Bing, who has died at the age of 55.

Sharing a number of photos of them on Instagram, Hurley said she was “saddened beyond belief” after the film producer was found dead in LA, adding: “It is a terrible end.”

Bing, who co-wrote 2003 comedy film Kangaroo Jack and financed The Polar Express starring Tom Hanks, died after falling from an apartment building, TMZ reported.

Hurley 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’m posting these pictures because although we went through some tough times, it’s the good, wonderful memories of a sweet, kind man that matter.

“In the past year we had become close again. We last spoke on our son’s 18th birthday. This is devastating news and I thank everyone for their lovely messages.”

Damien Hurley, the son of Hurley and Bing, wrote on Instagram: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has reached out following the devastating news.

“I’m trying to reply to as many of you as I can, but please know I will always remember your kindness. This is a very strange and confusing time and I’m immensely grateful to be surrounded by my phenomenal family and friends.”
