Date: 3rd December 2001
Pregnant ELIZABETH HURLEY was dumped by her billionaire boyfriend STEphEn BING for a blonde bit-part actress. Screen tease Brenda Swanson was spotted in a romantic embrace with the property heir at her 39th birthday party (21st July 2001) in Los Angeles, around the time Liz conceived.
A friend of Bing's says, "Steve was having a really tough time with Liz by then and appreciated the chance to relax with Brenda. They hit it off and ended up in bed at Steve's place after dining at AGO Italian restaurant. They had a great night together."
The friend adds that the pair met up again last month (NOV01) and spent the night together at the playboy's $4. 5 million (£3. 5 million) Bel Air mansion, while Liz, 36, announced in London that she was pregnant with Bing's child. (KMW/WNSNE/MCM)
