Elizabeth Hurley’s son Damian thanks fans for their ‘overwhelming kindness’ after dad Steve Bing’s tragic suicide – The Sun

DAMIAN Hurley has thanked his fans for their 'overwhelming kindness' in the days following his father Steve Bing's suicide.

The 18-year-old posted his heartfelt words on Instagram on Saturday.

Damian, who is the son of model and actress Elizabeth Hurley, wrote: "I’d like to thank you all again for your overwhelming kindness over the past few days. Your love and support has helped me greatly during this challenging time".

His words were posted alongside a picture of himself standing in front of a large vase of white flowers.

Multi-millionaire producer Steve was found outside a luxury apartment building in Century City, California at 1pm on Monday.

Damian's mother dated the 55-year-old back in 2001.

Speaking a day after his death, Damian admitted it was a "very strange and confusing time".

Posting alongside a sunset snap, he said on social media: "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 🖤".

Steve reportedly killed himself after years of depression and financial troubles, reports say.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office said the death was the result of multiple blunt trauma by suicide.

He was best known as an investor in films including The Polar Express and Beowulf, and he was also credited as a producer in Sylvester Stallone remake Get Carter.

The producer dated the likes of Sharon Stone, tennis player Lisa Bonder, Liv Tyler, Sheryl Crow, Nicole Kidman and Farrah Fawcett.

Steve is also survived by daughter Kira Bonder, who he had with former pro tennis star.

When Liz gave birth to Damian a year after dating Steve, he insisted the child was not his.

A paternity test later proved he was the biological father.

Liz paid tribute to the father of her son and former partner, saying that she was "saddened beyond belief".

She took to Instagram, sharing a number of photos with Bing with the caption: "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."
