A year on from the lamentable self-destruction of her previous sweetheart, Liz Hurley has been doing what any caring mother would: delicately attempting to direct her solitary child through the clashing feelings of losing the dad he was simply starting to become more acquainted with.
In spite of the fact that their relationship had been practically non-existent for the greater part of Damian’s life, a long time before Steve Bing’s demise the multi-tycoon financial specialist had made provisional strides towards building up a dad child bond, calling him interestingly on his eighteenth birthday celebration.
Who can say for sure where that first rapprochement may have driven? The one comfort in the misfortune was that Bing kicked the bucket feeling that his two kids — Damian and more seasoned relative Kira — would be monetarily secure.
He had as of late won a court fight, upsetting his own dad’s endeavor to bar them both from family trust reserves accepted to be valued at as much as a billion dollars (£725 million).
However today we can only uncover that Damian will not get a penny after his granddad prevailed with regards to engaging the choice.
All things considered, the fortune will be parted between the two offspring of Steve’s sister Mary, who critically, in contrast to their cousins, were brought into the world in wedlock.
It is a double-crossing that has stunned and crushed Liz Hurley, not simply that Damian has been denied an offer that might have reached $250 million (around £180 million) yet in addition that he has been successfully abandoned by his dad’s family.
During a genuinely violent year, Hurley has kept a noble quietness, however so shocked is she by the ‘insensitive’ treatment of her child by his own granddad that she gave an assertion to the Mail yesterday.
