Elizabeth and Damian Hurley Turn to Each Other for Support After the News of Steve Bing’s DeathJune 26, 2020
Elizabeth Hurley is renowned for being a woman who knows how to take control of her life and its narrative. She has encountered many ups and downs over the years, from broken high profile relationships to single motherhood, all of which she embodied with the virtue of grace.
However, she recently woke up to the shocking news of the death of Steve Bing, the father of her only son. 18-year-old Damian’s father appeared to have taken his own life in a fall from the 27th floor of an apartment building in Los Angeles. The multi-millionaire is alleged to have taken his own life as a result of mental health issues that he has been battling over the years.
Elizabeth took to social media to express her disbelief and sadness regarding the news. She even posted some throwback pictures of their time together, saying that even though they went through some tough times together, they still share some beautiful memories that she holds on to.
Many people were astonished by Elizabeth’s generous Statements towards Bing since the two seemed estranged to the world at large. The two only had a short-lived relationship in the early 2000s, which led to Elizabeth’s pregnancy, but Bing has publicly denied being the father. In fact, he only gave into the claims after a paternity test and a court case regarding the matter.
Bing insisted that he was not in an exclusive relationship with Miss Hurley at the time that she got pregnant and that she chose to become a single mother. Elizabeth responded by saying that she was deeply in love with Stephen at the time when they were still a couple and that contrary to his claims, they were still in a very healthy relationship when she discovered that she was pregnant.
The relationship between the three would then take many twists and turns with Elizabeth rejecting a 100,000-pound trust that Bing offered to pay yearly for his son to access at the age of 18. Bing even took to the court to sue his father, who wanted to disinherit Damian, claiming that he was an illegitimate offspring.
Fortunately, Hurley and Bing managed to reconcile over the past two years, and she referenced this while sharing the news of his death with her followers on social media. She said that the last time they spoke was on Damian’s 18th birthday, and thanked everyone for their heartfelt messages.
Damian also took to social media to respond to the demise of his biological father, thanking everyone who reached out following the devastating news. He said that even though he couldn’t respond to all the messages, he would always remember the kindness. He also thanked his friends and family for helping him to get through the difficult time.
Although the events surrounding Bing’s death remain a spectacle until more information is revealed, it will undoubtedly bring Elizabeth and Damian much closer, as they turn to each other for consolation. Aside from their striking resemblance, which leads Elizabeth to refer to Damian as her ‘twin’ the two have always had a deep emotional connection.
Elizabeth says that aside from their matching sets of piercing blue eyes, sculpted cheekbones, and glossy hair, she shares many personality traits with her son. She says that they are absolutely comfortable in each other’s company and that they spend a considerable amount of time together.
Elizabeth, whose career has extended across the lines of modeling, business, acting, and film production, is currently focused on her swimwear company. She also has an ongoing association with the cosmetic giant Estee Lauder. Damian, on the other hand, gravitates towards modeling, acting, and photography. He has taken some of his mother’s famously daring photos on her six million pound estate in Herefordshire.
The news of Steve Bing’s unexpected death will clearly have a significant impact on both Damian and Elizabeth as Elizabeth confesses that the Hurley’s are an emotional lot.
