Speaking about the reason for their break-up, Warne said that both of them had found their relationship too "hard". 45-year-old Warne, the former cricketer of Team Australia, was in a romantic relationship with 50-year-old Elizabeth. However, they parted their ways in 2013.
Warne spoke about his break-up with Elizabeth for the first time during his interview with The Times magazine. The cricketer was quoted as saying, "Relationships are hard. Really hard. They shouldn't be, but they are. Tough. Always an interesting dinner conversation: are two people meant to be together for the rest of their lives?"
However, the couple struggled to find time to see each other due to their hectic careers, Warne insisted "scheduling" was not the only factor which led to their split.
"It wasn't just scheduling. When we first met, she was basically not doing anything. She was a farmer. And I had retired from international cricket. But then Elizabeth went back to work, shooting movies and TV series. I was playing cricket and poker."
"She was going to America, doing her breast cancer awareness stuff for Estee Lauder. I had my poker, I had cricket commentary. I had children in Australia, so just putting all that into the mix. The number of whiteboards we had about travelling," added Warne.
"So the reason we split up, it wasn't just scheduling. It just shouldn't be that hard," he explained. Despite their separation, both Warne and Elizabeth still cherish the memories of their relationship
