Screenwriter and producer Steve Bing shocked the world Monday afternoon when he tragically jumped from the 27th floor of a Century City luxury apartment building. Bing's notable projects include, Kangaroo Jack, The Polar Express, Beowulf, among others. The 55-year-old had previously dated actress Elizabeth Hurley and the couple had a son together, Damian. Though they had broken up, Hurley revealed the duo had become close again and last spoke on their son's 18th birthday.

Heartbroken by the news, Hurley released a slideshow of photos to instagram along with the touching message:
    "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. This is devastating news and I thank everyone for their lovely messages ❤️"

Hurley and Bing's 18-year-old son, Damian also posted a tribute to his Instagram page.

    "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 🖤"

Our condolences to the respective families.
