Liz Hurley’s ex-boyfriend Steve Bing excluded his children Damian Hurley and Kira Kerkorian from his will 19 years before his suicide, court documents have shown.
He killed himself after years of depression and financial struggles, according to reports.
Hurley dated the 55-year-old back in 2001 and they shared 18-year-old son, Damian.
Bing also had daughter, 21-year-old Kira, with former tennis player Lisa Bonder.
Bing became a Hollywood power player after inheriting $820 million from his grandfather on his 18th birthday, dropping out of college and using the money to found his own company, Shangri-La Entertainment.
The multi-millionaire had his will written in 2001, before he knew that Kira had been born and when British actress Hurley was pregnant.
In the documents, he said: “I have recently been informed by an individual that she is pregnant with my child, and I hereby declare that whether or not such child is mine, it is my intention not to provide in this Will for such child (or any other child as to which I may be the father) in this Will or for the offspring of any such child or children, whether now living or hereafter born.”
According to court documents, Kira is now attempting to be made the administrator of her father’s estate, which is valued at $464,000.
However, his properties were not included in the financial evaluation.
A judge will make the decision on Thursday.
In the hours before his death, Bing wrote “one note for each kid,” TV personality Billy Bush said, according to the Mirror.
He also told the outlet: “I have friends that were friends with him. Steve had depression with a capital D.
“The whole coronavirus thing was definitely a factor. It really messed with him.
“Another source told me he was very depressed. Close friends are shocked at his death.”
Following Bing’s death, Hurley posted a tribute to Instagram, saying the pair had “become close again” over the past year.
“I am saddened beyond belief that my ex Steve is no longer with us,” she wrote.
Damian also thanked his fans for their “overwhelming kindness” in the days following his father’s suicide.
