Former high-end madam Heidi Fleiss’ father, Hollywood pediatrician Paul Fleiss, died early Saturday morning, RadarOnline.com has learned. He was 80 years old.

RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that the renowned doctor— who pled guilty in 1995 to conspiring to hide profits from his daughter’s infamous prostitution ring— passed away due to complications from a cycling accident that occurred a few months ago.

“He cycled every Sunday with a friend, until he was hit by a car,” a family insider tells RadarOnline.com.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Fleiss was still practicing medicine and counted many celebrity children among his clients. He also selflessly treated patients who could not afford to pay him.

The convicted madam’s father infamously signed the mortgage to a luxury home used as a base for her illegal escort business, and was sentenced to three years' probation, 625 hours of community service and a $50,000 fine.
