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.
