NEW YORK: Liz Hurley has dumped her beau cricketer Shane Warne because he was not willing to set a date for their wedding.
The couple have been engaged for 25 months.
Hurley, 48, who has been dating the legendary spinner since 2010, was upset because Warne, 44, was not keeping his commitment on wedding after he proposed to her in September 2011.
The Sun of London quoted a source as saying, “She feels let down. They had big, big plans. She really thought she had found the one in Shane. He could have easily saved the relationship by agreeing to a definite date.
“She kept pushing for a date but he was happy as things stood. She ended it furiously. She started to question whether Shane had any intention of marrying her.’’
But Warne, who is in Scotland on a golfing trip, said it was not over yet.
In a tweet, the spinner said,“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.’’
Warne ended his marriage to Simone Callahan, who is the mother of his three children, in 2010 after his philandering ways.
As for Hurley, she dated actress Hugh Grant for 13 years till they split in 2000. In 2002, she gave birth to Damian Hurley fathered by US business mogul Steve Bing.
She married Indian textile tycoon Arun Nayar in 2007 after dating him for five years. They split in 2010 after Hurley was linked to Warne.
