Hurley refuses Bing's child payments

Liz Hurley has refused an offer of 100,000 a year from her ex-partner Steve Bing to look after their son.
Following a High Court settlement, Bing agreed to pay a total of 1.8m spread over the first 18 years of the child's life.

The settlement comes six months after a DNA test confirmed that Bing was the father of Damian, now eight months old.

But Hurley said the money was "not wanted or welcome".

The film producer, 37, had cast doubt on the child's parentage, saying his 18-month relationship with the actress had not been "exclusive".

But when the financial plan was announced on Tuesday, and speaking before Hurley refused the offer, he said he was delighted to make "generous provision" for his son.

Hurley denied that she had other lovers while they were together
"A court order was made by consent in the family division today, December 17, concluding proceedings brought by Stephen Bing in respect of the child, Damian Charles Hurley," a statement said.

"The applicant (Mr Bing) will make financial provision for the benefit of Damian from January 1, 2003 of 100,000 per annum until Damian is 18 or a further order is made."

The millionaire grandson of New York real estate magnate Leo Bing, he is a producer of films including a remake of Get Carter, which starred Sylvester Stallone and flopped at the box office.

He is currently working on a new film called Why Men Shouldn't Marry, which he will write, produce and direct.

'Deeply distraught'

When the pregnancy was revealed, Bing said it was "her choice to be a single mother".

Hurley, 37, said at the time that she was "deeply distraught" at the implication she had other lovers.

After Bing made the comments, some UK tabloid newspapers attacked him as a "love rat" and dubbed him "Bing Laden".

But the press reports led to Bing winning a full-page apology from the Mirror after he dropped a $40m (25.8m) lawsuit against the paper.

Wow!! That's about 2.8 million US$ until the kid is 18 ys/o. I'm sorry, but that's some pretty expensive booty Elizibeth has.

Elizabeth has her own money - she doesn't need that piece of shite..I'm sure Bing's son would prefer a father over the cash..
