Clinton was one of the people that Bing helped before he died. Bing donated about 10 million dollars to the former's foundation and also sponsored a rescue plane that Clinton used to rescue two American journalists from North Korea, in 2009.

Clinton also declared his love for the late film producer, in the tribute. He finished off with the hope that Bing had finally found peace. The tribute read:

Two of the family members who Bing was survived by are his daughter, Kira Bonder, and his son, Damian, whom he shares with his ex, Elizabeth Hurley.

Damian took to Instagram to thank everyone who has reached out ever since his dad died. For him, the situation is bizarre and confusing.

Hurley also remembered Bing fondly in a sweet tribute, which she shared on her Instagram page. She described her late ex as a sweet and kind man with whom she had happy times.

"...It is a terrible end... I'm posting these pictures because... it's the good, wonderful memories...that matter."

He was also a financier and the founder of Shangri-la Entertainment. Steve was the grandson of Leo Bing from whom he inherited a $600 real estate fortune at the age of 18. Bing was very generous with his wealth, and he will be greatly missed.
