"The horse's mouth is pouring ridicule on the absurd new stories re me being romantically involved again with my ex, Hugh. Total fiction." British model/actress Elizabeth Hurley shuts down reports suggesting she has rekindled her romance with actor Hugh Grant following her split from fiance Shane Warne in December (13). She dated the Notting Hill star from 1987 to 2000 and they remain close friends.
British actress/model Elizabeth Hurley has split from Australian cricketer Shane Warne for a second time, according to a U.K. report. The couple called off its engagement in September (13) only to apparently reunite weeks later. Warne explained the pair was "sorting through" some private problems, insisting, "We're not throwing in the towel just yet."
However, editors at Britain's Hello! magazine suggest they have gone their separate ways once again and have cancelled plans to spend Christmas together at Hurley's country home in England.
A source tells the publication, "It is very sad and they tried to make it work but there were just too many issues in the way. Elizabeth is taking it one day at a time. She will always be extremely fond of Shane."
Hurley and Warne have not commented on the split as WENN goes to press. The pair began dating in 2010.
British model/actress Elizabeth Hurley returned to the red carpet with former cricket star Shane Warne on Friday (08Nov13) for the first time since reportedly calling off their engagement in September (13). The couple put on a united front for the cameras in Sydney, Australia for a special breakfast celebrating the launch of Hurley's new fashion collection with local label Queenspark, although they declined to conduct interviews with newspaper reporters, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.
The event marked the stars' first official public appearance together since experiencing trouble in their relationship almost two months ago, when Hurley was first photographed without her engagement ring.
The Australian sports legend subsequently insisted they were just "sorting through" some private problems, but declared, "We're not throwing in the towel just yet", and they appeared to have reconciled shortly afterwards as they were spotted stepping out for lunch together with Warne's children from his previous marriage.
Warne proposed to the Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery beauty in 2011 following a whirlwind relationship, which began the previous year (10).
It is not yet clear whether the couple's engagement is back on, but Hurley's diamond sparkler was still absent from her ring finger on Friday.

Cricket legend Shane Warne's ex-wife has dismissed rumours she is the reason for his split from fiancee Elizabeth Hurley. Actress/model Hurley confirmed earlier this month (Sep13) that her romance with Warne is over, although the Australian sports ace insisted they are fighting to save it.
Rumours swirled that the rift was due to Hurley's jealousy of Warne's continuing friendship with his ex-wife Simone Callahan, the mother of his three children, but Callahan has now spoken out to dismiss the suggestion as "laughable".
She tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I hope Shane and Elizabeth can work things out because they seemed happy together... There are definitely no feelings there (between us). It's laughable really."
Warne and Callahan divorced in 2006.
Actress/model Elizabeth Hurley has been blasted by animal welfare charities after boasting that her dogs kill foxes. The Austin Powers star, who is currently in talks with her estranged fiance Shane Warne in a bid to save their romance, told how her beloved Labradors police her farm in the English countryside.
Discussing her dogs, she described them as "naughty" and told Sky News, "Mine kill foxes", but the remark has sparked outrage among animal welfare groups.
A spokesman for the U.K.'s National Fox Welfare Society says, "It's despicable", and an Animal Aid representative adds, "Anyone with dogs liable to attack wild animals would do well to attend training classes or muzzle them."
