New heartbreak for Liz Hurley, 57, as third former partner dies: Actor Tom Sizemore, 61, suffers fatal brain aneurysm a year after her ex-fiance Shane Warne’s death from a heart attack at 52 – while father to her son Damian lost his life to suicide in 2020
Liz Hurley was last night trying to come to terms with the loss of a third former lover after the early death of Hollywood actor Tom Sizemore.
Sizemore, 61, died from a brain aneurysm and it will be a triple blow to Ms Hurley, 57, who has now suffered the deaths of three lovers 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 block of flats.
An inquest ruled it as suicide, and it was later revealed he had been fighting his billionaire father about wanting to leave money to Damian, whom he had reportedly never met.
Last year, Australian cricketer Shane Warne, to whom the Austin Powers actress was engaged, died of a heart attack at 52.

The couple started dating in 2010 after she split from her husband Arun Nayar, and had planned to wed. They broke up in 2013, but remained great friends.
Sizemore was best known for his roles in Saving Private Ryan and Natural Born Killers.
The troubled star, who fought drug and alcohol addiction, once told The Mail on Sunday 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 big regret. I was very much in love with her, hopelessly so. But my demons got in the way. I was in no fit state to have a real relationship. It is one of the biggest regrets of my life that I did not 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’d call and it would turn out to be some big Aussie joke.
‘Losing Stephen was something else completely. We’d been estranged for so long, but made up towards the end, and a bright future looked as if it was opening up.’

Sizemore became a star in the 1990s, playing tough guys in hits such as Heat with Robert De Niro, who paid for him to go into rehab.
Other film credits include Born On The Fourth Of July, True Romance and Pearl Harbor. He was lauded for his role in 2001’s Black Hawk Down, but his heroin and cocaine habits hit his career.
In his memoir, By Some Miracle I Made It Out Of There, Detroit-born Sizemore wrote: ‘I’d come from a poor background and made it big. I had the multi-million-dollar house, the Porsche, the restaurant I owned with Robert De Niro. Then I lost it all.’ In 2003 he was convicted of beating up his girlfriend, Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, and in 2007 he spent two years in jail for breaking parole on drugs offences.
He is survived by 17-year-old twin sons, Jayden and Jagger. He had an aneurysm at his LA home on February 18 and died on Friday after his life support was turned off.
