Warne now hooked to a TV presenterJuly 9th, 2008 - 8:55 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, July 9 (IANS) Shane Warne’s love tales seem to be unending. The Australian spin-wizard is now linked to model and TV presenter Kelly Landry. A report in the Daily Telegraph reveals that the couple met at a celebrity poker night at Crown Casino in Melbourne late last year. And now rumours are rife the two are more than just friends, though Landry’s manager David Malina says they are “just mates”.
“They are friends, they have been for a while and they are not romantically involved. They’re not seeing each other, they’re friends and that’s all,” Malina was quoted as saying by the daily.
Landry’s father, Owen Landry, said he did not pry into his daughter’s private life and had no idea if his daughter was seeing Warne.
Warne’s love life has always been the much talked about subject and his infidlities also led to his divorce from his wife of ten years Simone. The couple’s marriage broke after a string of sex scandals involving Warne.
His escapades also saw him lose the vice-captaincy of the Australia team in 2000 when a nurse accused him of making lewd phone calls. Three years later, a married stripper claimed she had an affair with him.
In 2005, whilst the bowler was preparing for the Ashes series in England, another affair came to light and that finally broke his marriage. Then came the allegation that he had bombarded a young secretary with text messages.
A young student then claimed the father of three had stripped naked in front of her and begged her for sex when they met at a London hotel prior to the Ashes.
Just a year later, a tabloid published pictures of Warne in his underpants with two 25-year-old models and details of explicit text messages sent by the star.
