Couple News: Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne Ignores the Perth ‘F-word’ Scandal at Charity Event in Melbourne [SLIDESHOW]
Elizabeth Hurley got caught up in an Australian scandal when she reportedly dropped the F-word to a reporter at the Perth airport last January 16. The British model and actress just ignored the controversy and showed her best behavior instead during fiancé Shane Warne's charity event in Melbourne yesterday.
Channel Ten reporter Caty Price revealed through the social networking site Twitter about her unpleasant encounter with the couple at the Perth airport.
"Being pushed by Liz Hurley and then told to f#*k off by her too.. Fair to say the Stars aren't happy this morning #bbl," the reporter posted on her Twitter account @caty_price.
The 47-year-old actress is known for being very protective of Shane Warne, but Caty Price claimed that the rude confrontation was absolutely unnecessary.
"Certainly that's not what I was expecting this morning and probably not what I would have thought from an English lady," Price stated.
According to Caty Price, she was just asking a couple of questions to Shane Warne when Elizabeth Hurley stepped in. "We were out at the airport to ask Shane about the game and the latest charge that he's facing. As you can imagine he was pretty tight-lipped coming in," Price told Radio 6PR.
On Sunday, former Australian cricketer Shane Warne hosted his annual "Shane Warne Foundation Charity Poker Tournament" where the money raised will be donated to the sick and unprivileged children. Warne's foundation began in 2004 where more than AU$6 million has already been raised since its launch.
"With the support the Foundation receives from Crown, the event just keeps on getting better each year. It's proving to be one of the biggest charity days of the year but it's important to remember why we do it. As an umbrella foundation, we fund many children's charities which need our funding to continue the work they do," Warne stated.
The actress even posted a message on "Twitter" to show her advocacy with Shane Warne's charitable foundation. "Great day for @warne888's foundation. Hopefully over AU$300,000 raised for sick and underprivileged Australian kids," the actress posted on her Twitter account @ElizabethHurley.
Elizabeth Hurley made a stunning appearance during the charity event at the Crown Casino wearing a white, floral-patterned Roberto Cavalli dress next to her well-dressed fiancé Shane Warne. The couple appeared unaffected with the recent scandal they were involved in.
