Damian Hurley has taken to Instagram to thank fans for their support following the death of his father, Steve Bing.
He shared a selfie in front of a bunch of white flowers, writing: ‘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’.
Steve, 55, had been found dead in California on Monday, 22 June, with the coroner confirming the film producer died by suicide.
He and Damian, 18, are thought to have grown closer in recent years, and Damian had spoken out after news of his death broke.
Damian wrote: ‘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.’
Damian’s mother, Liz Hurley, also shared her sadness on Instagram, writing: ‘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.’
Steve was best known as the financier of movies like The Polar Express and Beowulf, and wrote the script for 2003’s Kangaroo Jack, as well as being credited as a producer on films including Get Carter.
He is said to have inherited a $600 million (£481 million) fortune from his real estate developer grandfather, when he was 18.
Steve is survived by his two children – Kira Bonder, 21, from former professional tennis player Lisa Bonder, and Damian Hurley, 18, from his relationship with Liz Hurley.
