The year 2020 is just not ceasing with bringing surprising and miserable news. As the COVID-19 looks like some unstoppable force, we are simultaneously losing people due or not due to this pandemic. Yes, another well-known celebrity has bid farewell from the world. The famous American Businessman and Hollywood producer Steve Bing Committed Suicide on Monday, 22 June 2020, by jumping from his 27th-floor apartment in Century City, Los Angeles. The authorities are investigating to know the definite reason which prompted him to end his life.
Apparently, the business tycoon has been battling with depression and financial crisis for a year. As difficult as it is to believe, Steve had reportedly spent most of his fortune of $600 million he inherited from his real estate developer grandfather. The vast sum was lost due to unfavorable investments and films, which did not work well.
Added to it is the generosity of Steve. A source implies that he was facing drugs and a sort of estrangement with his kids, which saddened him. The mental illness was the final nail on the coffin. Another source reveals that he recently sold out his home, jet, and was quite depressed.
An anonymous friend of Bing states that “Steve was the most charming, caring, and generous guy you could ever meet. Yes, he liked beautiful women, but it never worked out. He has gone through a dark time for years. He talked about battling mental illness, bipolar disorder. His close friends are devastated about his death but, sadly, not surprised.” Again, this proves that an outer glamorous and luxurious life cannot guarantee inner peace and happiness.
The news came as a shock to the whole of Hollywood, and Steve’s ex Elizabeth Hurley took to Instagram to mourn his loss. Sharing a string of pictures of them, the businesswoman wrote, “I have 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 matters. 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.”
Steve Bing and Elizabeth Hurley have a son together, Damien Hurley, whom Steve denied to have fathered before a DNA test which proved otherwise. Bing and Hurley then solved their issue outside the court. Although Bing had numerous affairs with various women, this was a tragic end of the 55-year-old businessman. Our Condolences to his near ones and May His Soul Rest in Peace.
