Earlier this week, Damian confessed via Instagram that he was in the midst of a "very strange and confusing time" in his life.
The teenage star also insisted he was "grateful" for the support of his family and friends.
He said: "Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has reached out following the devastating news. I'm trying to reply to as many of you as I can, but please know I will always remember your kindness. This is a very strange and confusing time and I'm immensely grateful to be surrounded by my phenomenal family and friends [loveheart emoji] (sic)"
Meanwhile, Elizabeth has admitted she was "saddened beyond belief" by Bing's passing, revealing they had reconnected in recent times.
She shared a number of pictures of herself and her ex on Instagram, and wrote: "I am saddened beyond belief that my ex Steve is no longer with us. It is a terrible end. 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. In the past year we had become close again. We last spoke on our son's 18th birthday. This is devastating news and I thank everyone for their lovely messages."
