A Los Angeles judge ruled this week that Elizabeth Hurley‘s 17-year-old supermodel son Damian (above), whom she shares with businessman Steve Bing, is a lawful beneficiary of his millionaire grandfather’s trust.
In March, a trustee for Steve’s father’s estate filed court papers looking to exclude Damian from the trust, which had been established to “benefit future grandchildren.”
The trustee argued that Peter Bing had a specific definition of the word “grandchild,” and as Elizabeth and Steve were not married, Damian didn’t fit that definition.
In court papers filed last week, though, the motion was shot down.
“There is no ambiguity in the Trusts’ use of the term ‘’grandchild,’” Judge Daniel Juarez wrote in the ruling, adding that additional “restrictive” definitions “unreasonably distort the term’s clear and plain use.”
So now Damian, and his half sister Kira, are set to are expected to inherit several million at a minimum.
Mom Elizabeth tells People she still expects Damian to “still study hard at school.”
“I always say, you don’t want to be a bore at dinner. You have to know geography, you need to know history, you need to know ancient history, it’s interesting,” Elizabeth told PEOPLE. “And then of course, if he wants to be — and if he were talented enough and lucky enough to be a movie star, how nice that would be. But to me that’s the icing on the cake after you [become] a fully-rounded person.”
