Yes he is the father of Liz's lookalike son. He had very little to no relationship with him however. Still I'm sure they are shocked.
There was recent issue with the family inheritance. Bing's father is very wealthy, and there was issue re having his two children (he has another barely acknowledged daughter by another woman, who lived with Kirk Kerkorian if my memory serves) inherit their portion. I wonder how his death will impact this.

Padma Lakshmi got pregnant by another family scion - Adam Dell - but tried to pass her daughter off as her much older then bf, Teddy Forstmann. Dell fought a bitter battle in court to get a paternity test, and gain access to the girl, eventually succeeding. People are confusing this situation with the somewhat similar Bing-Kerkorian situation from years earlier.

R12, you are correct about both Liz's son and the Kerkorian connection. I follow both Liz and her (very pretty--looks nothing like his father) son Damian on IG; I'll be interested to see if they say a peep about it. He was a horrible person, from all accounts.

Della R22 I agree. I witnessed, along with dozens of others, a suicide in NYC, 3 years ago. We all watched in horror as she paused momentarily on the top floor of a Midtown hotel before hurling to her death on a fire plug below. You can never forget the sound her landing made. A group of Korean tourists, women, shrieked in terror and some fainted by the horror. We all felt helpless and horrible that we couldn’t stop her fall and death.
Most were stunned and frozen and didn’t even approach the body until a hotel worker spread a sheet over her. I’m sure others who witnessed this were as traumatized as I was. The New York Post reported that she was a Japanese national despondent over a romance gone bad. Sorry, very OT.

I know what you mean when you say this type of suicide is selfish because of the feelings it gives rise to in witnesses.
But IF you’re suicidal and IF you don’t fear an accounting in the afterlife and IF you want to be absolutely certain that you do not survive — the method he chose is extremely likely to result in death and, clearly, that’s what mattered to him..
I have read “Suicide and Attempted Suicide” by Geo Stone (ISBN: 0-7867-0492-6). He exhaustively covers every conceivable method of suicide and analyzes each for its effectiveness as a suicidal method and/or as a suicidal gesture. An example is: a shotgun blast to the head is an extremely effective method and a very ineffective gesture.
Stone does not judge gestures and reports that many survivors of suicidal gestures report a high degree of satisfaction after their “attempt,” largely because they become the focus of a lot of attention and are taken more seriously when they complain.
Bing clearly did not want to survive and was unconcerned about the feelings of possible witnesses.
When I say the book is detailed, I mean it. Stone reports percentages of people who land face up or otherwise, compares the lethality of suicidally intended jumps versus accidental falls, breaks the jumpers down by race and sex. Nothing escapes him!
And every time I read it, I decide not to do it.

We didn't talk about the suicide, but I can't imagine coming home to a scene like that.

R103, Doubtful it was the PH; he jumped from the 27th floor and the building is at least 40 floors.
As R83 said, I figured it was 10000 SM Blvd, although the 'Candy Spelling building' isn't too far from this area.
R53, that is terrible to think of. And Bing was six foot four at least, not a small guy (not saying someone small would make less of a mess, it's all horrible but you get my point)...

I took about ten minutes to scroll through the replies to this post. I clicked on the Daily Mail link but it's a video and those are totally useless because they're sensationalist shite for the functionally illiterate. The whole time I was looking for two words: SUICIDE NOTE. I went to the DM website where the caption of one of the many pics (of all the rich and famous people Bing knew. What the fuck does it signify now with whom he was acquainted?) said simply, "He is believed to have jumped to his death."
The point I'm making is that it's easy to confuse real life with network programming fiction, where everything is figured out, done, dusted and cleanly put away in 48 minutes. It's too early to tell what this is. But whatever entity expects me to believe somebody choose to fall 20 odd stories rather than face quarantining in sybaritic luxury in their LA flat is gonna have to try a little harder.
There has to be some sort of inquisition, and investigation. Since the lurching changes we made when the pandemic became something that was no longer a joke, I've had to change the way I digest disturbing and horrific information. Maybe I'd term it using cuticle (thank you, Jennifer Saunders) thinking as a means of coping.
And as too many of us know, suicidal ideation occupies the minds of those you'd never suspect of harbouring those thoughts. That said, I think Steve Bing was far too busy being rich to take himself out.

The Wikipedia entry stated that he “fell” to his death. People who commit suicide are generally clinically depressed. If they were in their right mind, they would never do it. My sisters girlfriend was a devoted mother with two adult daughters. Her husband left her and she was in an untreated depression for about a year. Then she hung her self and knew her children would find her. She would never have knowingly done that to her children. People don’t take depression seriously enough.

Anyone know why his grandfather left him all that money at age 18? Did he leave anything to his son, Bing's father, or just skip down to Steve. And what about Steve's sister, did Grandpa leave her a fortune as well when she came of age.

Both of his kids were ruled eligible to receive their share of their grandfather Peter Bing's trust, set up years ago for his grandchildren.

Both kids will also inherit whatever was left of Bing's own $600 million fortune, which might still be substantial. They're set for life.
His daughter Kira also received $8 million+ from her at-birth father, billionaire Kirk Kerkorian, in the divorce from her mother Lisa Bonder. So she is already well set. Damien one presumes will also eventually receive his mothers estate, minus whatever is left after all the expensive bikinis and swimsuit Insta shoots.

For the people questioning why he would jump, he probably was in intense mental pain and wanted something sure to work. Suicide by hanging or jumping usually indicates that they truly want out, rather than a "cry for help " sort of thing. I know people think he was awful for the Hurley fiasco but if they were in a casual relationship then it makes sense to request a paternity test before signing the birth certificate.

Sharon Stone has been chased by many crazy, rich men. Steve Wynn specifically, when she was a guest of his at the Mirage in Las Vegas whilst filming 'Casino'.

"He never met his son, Damian Hurley, now an 18-year-old model and actor, and only met daughter Kira Kerkorian, now 21, when she was an adult. But having initially fought public battles because he doubted his paternity of these children, he more recently went to court to ensure they would inherit a share of the Bing family fortune."
In 2019, Bing’s father sought to revise a four-decade-old trust to eliminate Bing’s two children as heirs to the family fortune, arguing they’d been born out of wedlock and his son had never developed meaningful relationships with them. “To the best of my knowledge, Stephen has never met Damian, and Stephen only met Kira after she became an adult,” Peter said in an affidavit. He also said having never met either child, “I do not consider them my grandchildren.” (Peter Bing, who has not commented publicly on his son's death, could not be reached for comment.)
In court papers, Bing’s attorneys described it as unjust for Damian and Kira to be “denied their rightful share” because of “the life choices their parents made, and Steve Bing will not stand idly by as his family exploits those circumstances and tries to redirect funds from Steve Bing’s children to [his sister] Mary Bing’s children.” (In 2002, Mary Bing told Vanity Fair that her brother had been “reproductively taken advantage of.”)
Bing said in court papers that he found it “callous” and “especially alarming” that Peter had said in an affidavit that he wouldn’t consider Damian Hurley to be his grandchild even if Bing were to develop a relationship with Damian. But at the time of his death, that had yet to happen. A knowledgeable source says the two had never met, but Bing texted with Damian on his 18th birthday in April.
I can't say I disagree with Grandpa Bing. You never met the kids despite knowing exactly where they were, were never a father aside from where you busted your load, why would you be considered "family" and entitled to property?

Steve Bing was also one of the driving forces to coerce Graydon Carter of Vanity Fair not to publish a piece on Jeffrey Epstein (and Ghislaine Maxwell) written by John Connolly for Vanity Fair.
Maxwell was in contact with Bing before he died.

How tall is that building?
I think I’d pick something taller... just to be sure.

Looks like Stevie had quit the bing-ing funeral. (YouTube says it's his, anyway.)

He was on the creative team responsible for MILK and BEEF!

R399. He killed himself close to the anniversary of his girlfriend's death of overdose. More likely guilt at his role in this - paying for drugs for her, using with her, not getting her into treatment. It's frau-thinking to make it about the kids he never wanted.

[R392] in this case we now know it was his ex-gf --- and the article says they were planning on having kids together. AS IF.

Pfft to anyone who thinks Liz Hurley must be upset because there had recently been a rapprochement between herself and Bing.
Translation: Liz Hurley told the press there had been a recent rapprochement, foreseeing front-page stories in every women's magazine in the Western world about her grief and her now-dashed [sorry] hope that they might have reconciled and rekindled their Twu Wuv.
