Film producer Steve Bing, 55, has died reportedly by suicide 

Hollywood filmmaker Steve Bing, who shares a son with actress Elizabeth Hurley, has been found dead in Los Angeles, according to reports in the US.

Bing, 55, was known for his work on movies including Kangaroo Jack, which he co-wrote, and for financing films including The Polar Express, starring Tom Hanks.

Bing initially denied he was Damian’s biological father only for DNA tests to vindicate Hurley.

TMZ said Bing had died after falling from the 27th floor of a luxury apartment building in Los Angeles’ Century City, citing anonymous law enforcement sources.

Bing donated money to Mr Clinton and was reportedly instrumental in helping the former president return two American reporters from North Korea in 2009. 

In his tribute, Mr Clinton said: “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.”Steve Bing was a long-time friend and supporter of Bill Clinton CREDIT: Getty
