Film Producer Steve Bing’s Shocking Net Worth at the Time of His Death
Months after his suicide, new details have surfaced about film producer Steve Bing's net worth.
While Bing reportedly inherited $600 million from his grandfather when he turned 18, it looks like he died with significantly less. According to Town & Country, Bing was only worth $300,000 in liquid assets, which he wanted to bequeath to the Clinton Foundation.
The outlet noted that his daughter Kira Bonder is the administrator of his estate, which will need to settle several debts before giving the remaining money to the foundation.
After receiving his inheritance, Bing set his sights on Hollywood. He first made his mark as executive producer on Sylvester Stallone's 2000 film “Get Carter.” He went on to found the company Shangri-La Entertainment in 2000, and write “Kangaroo Jack” in 2003. His company was also a major investor in 2004's “The Polar Express.”
In June, TMZ reported that Bing took his own life by jumping from the 27th floor of his apartment building in Century City, California.
Bing was survived by his son Damian Hurley, 18, with ex Elizabeth Hurley, and Bonder, 21, with tennis player Lisa Bonder.
At the time of Bing's death, “Extra's” Billy Bush spoke with Sharon Stone, who had been romantically linked to the financier. She said, “This is really hard. I had a really hard time with it… He's a complicated person who I didn't think always made good decisions… It's a tough one. It's a very tough one.”
