"Too raw and personal to share": Elizabeth Hurley explains silence over split reports

There’s yet to be an official announcement confirming Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne have split. But the model and actress seemed to confirm the pair had gone their separate ways as she reached out to her fans on social media.

“Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now,” said the 48-year-old.



Elizabeth sent the message a day after she was spotted in London, her ring finger missing the diamond and sapphire sparkler Shane gave her two years ago.

The Twitter-savvy stars, who would frequently send each other public tweets, have not mentioned each other for several weeks — and noticeably, did not refer to each other when Shane celebrated his 44th birthday last week.

Former cricketer Shane, currently at home in Australia, thanked friends and family for his birthday messages, but failed to mention his fiancée, who was back in England.


The couple were first linked in July 2010 when they were photographed chatting together at the Glorious Goodwood Festival in Sussex.

After a year of dating, the couple announced on Twitter that they were engaged following Shane’s proposal at St Andrews in Scotland in October 2011.
