Hurley-link Warne splits from wife

The Pak Banker - - International3 -

SYD­NEY: For­mer Aussie cricket star Shane Warne has con­firmed he has split from his wife amid re­ports link­ing him to model Liz Hurley.

The ex-spin bowler's ad­mis­sion comes just hours af­ter Hurley said she had parted from her hus­band, busi­ness­man Arun Na­yar.

In a mes­sage posted on his web­site, 41-year-old Warne said: "Sadly and un­for­tu­nately, Si­mone and I split up a while ago, our close friends and fam­ily were in­formed at that time. It is a pri­vate mat­ter so we did not make it pub­lic. We re­main friends and will con­tinue to be good par­ents."

He and Hurley, 45, spent two nights to­gether in a London ho­tel suite last week, ac­cord­ing to the News of the World. The un­likely pair have been ex­chang­ing mes­sages on so­cial net­work­ing site Twit­ter.

Hurley - also an ac­tress, pro­ducer and busi­ness­woman - on Sun­day used the site to con­firm her sep­a­ra­tion: "Not a great day. For the record, my hus­band Arun & I sep­a­rated a few months ago. Our close fam­ily & friends were aware of this."

The 45-year-old, who dated ac­tor Hugh Grant for more than a decade, has an eight-year-old son Damian from a re­la­tion­ship with film pro­ducer Steve Bing.

She mar­ried Na­yar three years ago in a civil cer­e­mony at Sude­ley Cas­tle in Winch­combe, Glouces­ter­shire, in 2007. -Ap
