Australian cricketing legend Shane Warne is playing his cards close to his chest as speculation mounts that he and British actress, Liz Hurley, are having an affair.
The alleged romance began back in June, and it now seems that petrol has been thrown on the smouldering bonfire by the media who have rapidly jumped on the story after Hurley and Warne “flirted” on Twitter. This revelation has severely damaged Warne’s reconciliatory talks with his ex-wife, Simone Callahan.
The record breaking Aussie spin bowler returned home to Melbourne after work with Sky Sports, oblivious to the fact his private life was about to be splashed all over the Sunday tabloids.
By the time his feet were set back on terra firma down under, the news about his alleged affair with the Austin Powers star was common knowledge, thanks to Hurley herself posting about her split from husband Arun Nayar on Twitter. Warne refused to comment on the reports when quizzed by Australian press.
Warne’s marriage has been ravaged by one thing or another in the past, and although a respected sportsman he had a reputation as being something of a rogue. Many news sites and celebrity gossip outlets believe this latest controversy will spell the end of his relationship with Callahan.
The couple first split back in 2005 after Warne was linked with a string of affairs but earlier this year he and his wife had a “reconciliation” which they hoped would resolve their marital issues.
When asked about the latest scandal surrounding her husband, Callahan, mother of his three children said: “I don’t want to talk right now, thank you.”
