Steve Bing was an American producer, writer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He had also donated to various political campaigns of the Democratic Party throughout his life. Born into a wealthy family, Bing inherited a fortune from his real-estate magnate grandfather, at an early age. He eventually dropped out of Stanford University to start a career in Hollywood. Over the years, he produced numerous hit projects, through his production house, Shangri-La Entertainment. He was dragged into two separate paternity suits, one involving actor Elizabeth Hurley’s son, Damian, and the other involving tennis player Lisa Bonder’s daughter, Kira. DNA tests proved Bing was the father, in both the cases. Unfortunately, on June 22, 2020, he jumped to his death from his Los Angeles apartment, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Friends later revealed he had been suffering from mental-health issues and was also battling drug addiction.
