'I loved Steve Bing very much,' Bill Clinton said about his close friend who was found dead on Monday

Billionaire Democrat donor and close friend of the Clintons Steve Bing has been found dead near his home following a suspected suicide, according to reports.

Steve Bing is believed to have jumped to his death from the 27th floor of his Los Angeles skyscraper apartment block on Monday.

Bing's ex-wife, British actress Liz Hurley, said she was "saddened beyond belief" at the news of his suicide, at the luxurious Ten Thousand Building, calling it a "terrible end."

It has been suggested that the 55-year-old real estate heir took his own life after becoming depressed from a lack of human contact during LA's lockdown, sources told TMZ

Police responded to an incident on Santa Monica Boulevard in Century City around 1 pm, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department told Yahoo.

“This is the only information we have at this time,” said LAPD Captain Gisselle Espinoza.

While the police would not say if he had committed suicide, the New York Post did.

“The 55-year-old producer jumped from the 27th floor of a high-rise in Century City, L.A.,” The Post reported.

"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,” Hurley wrote in a tribute to Bing on Instagram. 

"In the past year we had become close again.

"We last spoke on our son’s 18th birthday.”

Bing was a major Democratic donor, giving millions to the party, and a friend of former President Clinton, according to The Daily Wire.

Clinton praised his friend in a post on Twitter.

"I loved Steve Bing very much,” Clinton wrote late Monday. 

"He had a big heart, and he was willing to do anything he could for the people and causes he believed in.

"I will miss him and his enthusiasm more than I can say, and I hope he’s finally found peace.”

Bing also made headlines in another case, in which he sued Kirk Kerkorian “for invasion of privacy after the billionaire’s private eye — the infamous Anthony Pellicano — took Bing’s dental floss out of his trash can,” The Post wrote.

"Kerkorian was embroiled in a child support lawsuit with his ex-wife, Lisa Bonder.

"He used the DNA from the floss to prove that Bing was the father of Bonder’s child, Kira.”

Celebrities also lamented his passing.

Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger said: “It’s so sad to hear of Steve Bing’s passing.

"He was such a kind and generous friend and supported so many good and just causes. I will miss him very much.”

Actress Rosanna Arquette tweeted: "This is very sad and disturbing news… Rest In Peace Steve.”
