Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne appear to be headed for a split! Elizabeth appeared to confirm she and Shane were no longer together, while Warne insists they haven’t called it quits.
Has the couple ended their engagement?
There are reports that Shane Warne’s close friendship with his ex-wife Simone Callahan is to blame for their issues. Simone was spotted visiting Shane in Melbourne, Australia where he is currently staying.
Elizabeth appears to be finding comfort in her former boyfriend, actor Hugh Grant, who was spotted leaving her home on Tuesday evening.
Shane, 44, tweeted on Wednesday, addressing the rumors.
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

But Elizabeth, 48, took to Twitter to apologize to fans for her silence on the reports and seemed to confirm the split rumor.
Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now.

Elizabeth Hurley was said to be very upset about Shane’s close friendship with Simone, with whom he has three children.
A source said, “Elizabeth found out he had been over at Simone’s house a lot. She seemed to get the idea that something more than friendship was going on. Liz couldn’t ever handle Shane and Simone being friends.”
Shane and Simone split in 2005 after the cricketer reportedly cheated on her. The couple rekindled their relationship but split again in 2010 after Shane hooked up with Elizabeth.
Warne added fuel to the fire when he backed out of his big media event in Melbourne just two hours before he was to make a special announcement about his foundation.
