"We had no idea Arun's marriage was on the rocks. I'm hoping that now Arun will get back home. I have messaged him. I am shocked," the Daily Express quoted him as telling the Daily Mirror.
The pair's relationship hit headlines when the News of the World reported that Hurley had spent two nights at a London hotel with cricketer ace Shane Warne. Hurley subsequently told fans on Twitter.com, "Not a great day. For the record, my husband Arun and I separated a few months ago. Our close family and friends were aware of this."
