Hurley not headed down the aisle
According to a London tabloid the wedding between film star Liz Hurley and her Indian lover Arun Nayar, aka the Bombay Bonker, has been called off, apparently after rows over money! Nice to know that even the celebrities fight over money now and again! In a front-page report, The News of the World said Nayar, 37, called off the wedding with Hurley, 38, after rows over her expensive lifestyle. According to the report, Arun?s financial problems have forced him to be treated as a kept man and he doesn?t like it one bit. “Proud Arun Nayar’s cash problems have led to him jilting one of the sexiest women in the world,” the tabloid stated. He recently had to pay and estimated $1.5 million dollars to his Italian model wife Valentina Pedori in their divorce settlement so he could be free to marry Hurley.
But the news from the Hurley camp tells a very different story with a spokeswoman for Hurley as saying that the two “are still happy together”. Hurley set UK paper the Evening Standard straight, revealing that the couple are not even engaged! But Miss Hurley’s agent, Karen Smith, said: “It was an invention of the press that Elizabeth and Arun were getting married and they are highly amused to be told that their wedding is now off. They are eagerly awaiting the next fictionalised installment of their riveting matrimonial plans.” Wonder what the real truth is? Will ?unlucky in love Liz? finally get her big day to walk down the aisle? The world?s media are advising Liz not to hold her breath for a big wedding anytime soon!
