Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub has died at the age of 77.
TMZ reports the Tinseltown legend - who produced movies such as the 'Ocean's 11' remake and the 'Karate Kid' franchise - passed away on Monday (07.06.15) at his Palm Springs home.
He is believed to have been suffering ill health recently and was surrounded by family members when he passed away.
Jerry split from his wife Jane Morgan in the 1980s after approximately 20 years of marriage, although they never divorced.
He has been living with girlfriend Susie Ekins for almost 20 years and earlier this year spoke about his amicable relationship with Jane, revealing that she calls him daily.
He explained to Vanity Fair that every day: ''Each of my four children and Jane, my wife, will call to check in.''
The couple have three adopted daughters, while Jerry also has a son from a previous marriage.
Jerry had a number of famous friends and business associates including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone and Don Cheadle.
During his career Weintraub also managed or produced concerts for acts including Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Cuba Gooding, Sr and Frank Sinatra.
He was still working in his 70s and earlier this year said: ''Every day has moments of perfection because, when you're living your dream, every day feels perfect.''
