New heartbreak for Liz Hurley, 57, as third former partner dies: Actor Tom Sizemore, 61, suffers a fatal brain aneurysm a year after the death of her ex-fiancée Shane Warne from a heart attack at age 52 – while the father of her son Damian lost his life to suicide in 2020
Liz Hurley was trying to come to terms with the loss of a third former lover last night following the untimely death of Hollywood actor Tom Sizemore.
Sizemore, 61, died of a brain aneurysm and it will be a triple blow to Ms Hurley, 57, who has now suffered the deaths of three loved ones in three years.
Film producer Steve Bing, 55, father of her son Damian, 20, died in 2020 after falling 27 stories from the roof of a luxury apartment building.
An inquest ruled it a suicide, and it was later revealed that he had fought with his billionaire father, wanting to leave money to Damian, whom he reportedly never met.
Last year, Australian cricketer Shane Warne, to whom the Austin Powers actress was engaged, died of a heart attack at the age of 52.

The couple started dating in 2010 after she divorced her husband Arun Nayar and planned to get married. They split in 2013, but remained good friends.
Sizemore was best known for his roles in Saving Private Ryan and Natural Born Killers.
The harried star, who battled drug and alcohol addiction, once told The Mail on Sunday that he had been ‘hopelessly in love’ with Ms Hurley when they dated while she lived in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s.
He said, ‘She was my great regret. I was deeply in love with her, hopelessly. But my demons got in the way. I was unable to have a real relationship. It’s one of the biggest regrets of my life that I didn’t treat Liz better.” She has never spoken publicly about Sizemore. But speaking of Warne and Bing, she said, “Losing Shane was terrible. I honestly kept thinking he would call and it would turn out to be a big Aussie joke.
“Losing Stefan was something completely different. We had been estranged for so long, but made up towards the end, and a bright future seemed to open up.”

Sizemore became a star in the 1990s, playing tough guys in hits like Heat with Robert De Niro, who paid him to go to rehab.
Other film credits include Born On The Fourth Of July, True Romance, and Pearl Harbor. He was praised for his role in 2001’s Black Hawk Down, but his heroin and cocaine habits hindered his career.
In his memoir, By Some Miracle I Made It Out Of There, Detroit native Sizemore wrote, “I came from a poor background and made it big. I had the multi-million dollar home, the Porsche, the restaurant I owned with Robert De Niro. Then I lost everything.’ In 2003, he was convicted of beating up his girlfriend, Hollywood madame Heidi Fleiss, and in 2007 spent two years in prison for breaking parole for drug offenses.
He is survived by 17-year-old twin sons, Jayden and Jagger. He suffered an aneurysm at his home in LA on Feb. 18 and died on Friday after going off life support.
