Liz Hurley (R) and Arun Nayar are pictured in London in this May 12, 2005 file photo. Hurley married Nayar in a private civil ceremony at a 15-century castle, and photographers and spectators descended on Saturday, March 3, 2007 on the quiet town of Winchcombe in western England to catch a glimpse of their lavish wedding party.
Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar may be heading for splitsville.
The Sunday Telegraph reported on the rumour doing the rounds among London’s celebrities. It said that Hurley’s and Nayar’s friends fear that their two-year-old marriage has fallen apart, with Hurley unable to spend much time with Nayar. The two had tied the knot amid much glitz and glamour — Elton John had given her away — at UK’s Sudeley Castle and again at the Umaid Bhavan Palace in Jodhpur.
The 43-year-old actress has several commitments — including a swimwear and gift company, various television and modelling contracts and an organic farm in Gloucester-shire. On Saturday, Hurley’s friends were expecting an announcement about the separation. When the paper contacted Hurley’s spokesman, there was no denial.
Hurley and Nayar got together in 2002 but married in March 2007 because of Nayar’s acrimonious divorce from Italian wife Veronica Pedroni. Pedroni had accused Hurley, a friend, of snatching Nayar.
