Sad news this week as it looks like Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne’s three year relationship is on the rocks. After reports of a split Liz was seen out and about in London without the Saphire engagement ring Shane gave her in 2011 fuelling rumours that all is not well with the Australian cricketer and actress girlfriend. Now the couple have both taken to Twitter to admit that things aren’t going so well.
Some of the reports re EH & me r absolute rubbish. Yes we're sorting through some (private) issues. But we're not throwing the towel in yet— Shane Warne (@warne888) September 18, 2013
Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now.— Elizabeth Hurley (@ElizabethHurley) September 18, 2013
Lest we not forget that theirs was a relationship practically born on Twitter. After meeting at Glorious Goodwood in July 2010 rumours started about a possible flirtation between Liz and Shane when she tweeted, ‘Sammy [her spaniel] sends you a special lick and says he'd like to put his silky head on your shoulder.’
They were eventually outed as a couple in December by a British newspaper who printed pictures of them kissing – by this point Liz had announced that she had split from husband businessman Arun Nayer, Shane also announced his split from Simone Callahan the mother of his three children. Liz and Shane became engaged in September 2011 taking to Twitter (obviously) to announce their happy news.
So what’s going on now? Well reports have suggested that Shane has been spending a lot of time with Simone in Australia which understandably may have upset Liz. And today it was revealed that they may be gearing up for a battle over the £6million Herefordshire estate that they bought as a couple and paid for in cash. We’ll keep you updated with news as we have it.
