On Wednesday, Shane Warne took to Twitter to set the record straight on the status of his relationship with fiancee Elizabeth Hurley amidst media reports of a split.
The spin star tweeted,
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
Rumours of the couple's split started after two incidents on Wednesday.
First, Hurley stepping out without her engagement ring and the other was a last-minute no-show by Warne at a press conference.
Reports in the British and Australian media say the celebrity couple have called it quits with The Sun citing a source as saying, "They have been so loved-up and have tried to make it work, but the distance has been a huge issue."
The rumours first rose when there was a lack of social media interaction between the pair.
Liz Hurley did not send Shane Warne a birthday message on September 13 when he turned 44. The actress was in England and the former cricketer was in Australia visiting his three children.
Both Hurley and Warne are very active on social media but Warne's last tweet to his fiancee was on August 30. She was reportedly due in Melbourne a week ago but did not turn up.
Sometime before Warne's tweet Hurley tweeted saying,
Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now.— Elizabeth Hurley (@ElizabethHurley) September 18, 2013
The Liz Hurley-Shane Warne romance seems to have hit troubled waters fans of the couple will hope they sort out their problems soon.
