Elizabeth Hurley has announced she has separated from her husband Arun Nayar.
The actress-and-model revealed on Sunday (12.12.10) she and the Indian businessman had ended their marriage “months ago” following revelations in the News of the Word newspaper that she had been having a fling with Australian cricket legend Shane Warne and had spent time with him in a London hotel earlier in the week.
She wrote on her twitter page: “Not a great day. For the record, my husband Arun & I separated a few months ago. Our close family & friends were aware of this. (sic)”
According to the News of the World, Warne invited Hurley to stay with him while he was in London filming interviews for his TV talk show ‘Warnie’.
The retired cricketer arrived on Wednesday (08.12.10) and he was seen dining with the brunette beauty and her ex-fiance Hugh Grant at the Sake No Hana Japanese restaurant that evening.
After dinner, the 45-year-old star went back to the 41-year-old former sportsman’s luxury suite at The Bentley Hotel to spend night and she reportedly spent the next evening in his room as well.
Hurley – who has an eight-year-old son Damian from a previous relationship -started dating Nayar in late 2002 and the pair married in March 2007 at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, before having a second ceremony, a traditional Hindu service, at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, in India.
