He tweeted: "I loved Steve Bing very much".

Along with their tribute, Hurley shared a slideshow of photos of the former couple hugging them up close at various locations around the world, including an amusement park and ski resort.

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ he died after falling from an apartment building in Los Angeles' Century City neighbourhood.

"Hard to believe a 55 year old billionaire #SteveBing suddenly chose to jump off a tall building because he "was depressed about social isolation during the Covid lockdown" which is over now anyway", wrote a user.

He is survived by two children - a son with Elizabeth Hurley and a daughter with Kira Bonder. It is a bad end. We became close again in the previous year & last spoke on our son's 18th.

He co-wrote the 2003 comedy "Kangaroo Jack", a film starring Anthony Anderson and Jerry O'Connell that was savaged by critics but made almost $90 million at the box office.

Aged 18, Bing inherited a reported US$600m (NZ$927m) from his grandfather, a prominent Los Angeles real estate developer.

About a dozen armed police officers with shields were seen entering the block and families living in the building were moved out. A man who went on a stabbing rampage in Reading , England , killed three people and injured three more.

Bing, who initially refused to have fathered Damian, was proved wrong following a DNA test.

Damian Hurley posted a message Tuesday on Instagram as well, thanking everyone who had reached out about the "devastating news".

"This is a very odd and confusing time and I'm immensely grateful to be surrounded by my phenomenal family and friends".

As a political donor, he reportedly gave tens of millions to multiple progressive initiatives, including $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. He also financed and produced films such as 2000's Sylvester Stallone remake "Get Carter", "The Polar Express" and "Kingsman: The Golden Circle".

The producer went to write Missing in Action 2: The Beginning (1985), an episode of Married With Children in 1989 and 2003's Kangaroo Jack and 1994's Every Breath.

He was a big supporter of Mr Clinton, having donated at least $10m (£8.03m) to his foundation and paid for the former president's trip to North Korea in 2009 to negotiate for the release of two USA journalists.
