Shane Warne’s ex-wife, Simone Callahan, has revealed that she still finds it painful to see Elizabeth Hurley “playing mum” to her children.
Callahan described Warne and the British actress’ recent visit to their nine-year-old daughter’s school as “awkward”.
“Shane and Liz turned up – along with a swag of photographers – but we didn’t speak at the assembly,” News.com.au quoted her as telling Woman’s Day.
Callahan said that she found it disrespectful that her children were calling Hurley “mummy”.
“I can’t control what people say, but it’s just disrespectful as far as I’m concerned. She [Liz] is not their mum. And the kids know exactly what the situation is,” she said.
The former Australian cricketer and Hurley were photographed sitting next to Callahan during their son’s school football match earlier this month.
“It was a little bit awkward at first but it looked like they had a lot to catch up on,” one onlooker had said.
“Everything seemed fine between them and it looked like Simone enjoyed having Shane to herself when Liz popped away for a minute,” the onlooker added.
