Shane Warne’s ex-wife has told a British newspaper she is not responsible for his reported split from fiancee Elizabeth Hurley.
Hurley, 48, has stopped wearing her sapphire engagement ring after she and Warne reportedly argued about the cricketer’s close relationship with his ex-wife.
Although Simone Callahan was seen visiting Warne’s house last week, she says they are just friends.

‘‘There are definitely no feelings there,’’ she told the Daily Mirror.
‘‘Shane and I gave it a good shot and we’re much better the way things are as friends.’’
The 43-year-old, who is the mother of Warne’s three children, said she was happy with boyfriend Toby Roberts.
She confirmed she and Warne, 44, were not getting back together, and said she had visited her former husband’s home with their daughter to talk about a school project.
‘‘I hope he and Elizabeth can work things out as they seemed happy together,’’ she added.
