Shane Warne on Wednesday denied rumours of a split with girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley, tweeting that they were “not throwing in the towel yet” after the actress said her feelings were “too raw” to share.
A last minute no-show by the legendary leg-spinner at a press conference for his foundation earlier in the day added fuel to speculation in the British and Australian press that the celebrity couple had called it quits.
But Warne said on Wednesday evening that he and Hurley were working through their problems.
“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,” he wrote on Twitter. Half an hour earlier “Bedazzled” star Hurley had posted: “Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now.”
The rumours were sparked by a lack of tweets between the pair with Hurley not sending Warne a 44th birthday message on September 13, although she was in England and he was in Australia visiting his children.
