Spin-king Shane Warne and English model and actress Liz Hurley have often expressed their love for each other on micro-blogging site, Twitter. An unusual recent silence on Twitter is fueling rumours that the legendary leg-spinner and Hurley have parted ways.
According to reports in the British and Australian media, the pair may have split up, as indicated by their lack of online communication with each other.
Warne and 48-year-old actress have previously been known to share and display their affection for each other on the social networking platform. Since they were spotted kissing by the paparazzi in December 2010, the duo has given the world a sneak peek into their romance. Hurley announced her split with then-husband Arun Nayar on Twitter while Warne used the same platform to announce his separation from his wife, Simone. 'Shurley', as they are dubbed, got engaged in Scotland in September 2011 and had plans to marry this year, with ceremonies in both England and Australia.
However, after several weeks of Twitter silence, these plans have seemingly been put on hold. Hurley last tweeted Warne on September 1.
Happy Father's Day to all Australian Dads. Especially @warne888 ?- Elizabeth Hurley (@ElizabethHurley) September 1, 2013
Warne mentioned Hurley in a tweet one day before but have since maintained a cold silence.
Interestingly, Warne celebrated his 44th birthday last Friday, but failed to mention Hurley when thanking his friends and family for birthday wishes. A few days earlier, on September 8, Warne tweeted a cryptic message, leading to rumours of a split.
"Something to think about, it's not what happens in your life, it's how you react to what life throws at u, in both the good & bad times!" he wrote.
One wonders, if the Warne-Hurley romance on the world's most preferred micro-blogging site has come to an end?
