Tragic Steve Bing was urged to speak out about what he knew of his paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein's crimes, his late girlfriend's aunt has claimed.
Carrie Mitchum, aunt to Allexanne Mitchum - who died last year - has claimed that her niece urged him to speak out about "what he did know".
She wrote that while Steve and Epstein "weren't close", Allexanne "convinced Steve to make a statement via his attorneys telling what he did know".
Hollywood movie producer Steve fell to his death a week ago from a Los Angeles skyscraper at the age of 55.

American billionaire Epstein was arrested in that same month on sex trafficking charges involving underage girls, but died in August in jail while awaiting trial.
His death was ruled a suicide, but questions have been raised over the circumstances of his final moments after CCTV footage outside his jail cell went missing.
Carrie, who first introduced Steve to her niece, wrote that she had seen Steve shortly before lockdown.
She said in a Facebook post: "Steve also knew Jeffry Epstein. They weren't close and Steve didn't 'hang out' with him but a little over a year ago Allexanne convinced Steve to make a statement via his attorneys telling what he did know.Epstein killed himself in jail (Image: REUTERS)
"Allexanne was such a staunch advocate for victims of the sex trade and felt any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could prove to be useful.
"That's it. No big mystery or conspiracy here."

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's Office said Steve's death was the result of multiple blunt trauma by suicide.
Steve's took his own life as the first anniversary of Allexanne's death drew near.

They had made up, but before returning to their shared home she took what she believed to be a Xanax pill.
It was laced with fentanyl, and caused her to overdose.
She later died in hospital.
Carrie recalled her time seeing Steve just prior to lockdown: "I went to his apartment in Century City, bought him a bunch of groceries, and we talked for hours.Carrie claimed Allexanne had 'convinced Steve to make a statement via his attorneys' (Image: FilmMagic)
"He was questioning God, the afterlife, the meaning of everything and anything.
"He got really quiet and his eyes filled with tears and he said...'and the guilt'...I knew exactly what he meant.
"Allexanne had died on his watch. Our watch. That guilt tears me up every single day.
"Intellectually, I know it wasn't his fault. Or my fault. It was a horrible accident. Emotionally, the guilt is crushing."
