Shane Warne has launched an explosive tirade about "fabricated stories" regarding himself and his family.

The Australian cricket legend took to Twitter on Wednesday night to vent his frustrations without going into detail.

“For 30 years my children & I have had to put up with your lies & fabricated stories – well not anymore," he posted.

"You should not be allowed to just make things up. You are going to apologise to the Aust public for your continual lies & my family as this is an absolute disgrace – AGAIN!

“And for the small minority out there that want to reply with smart arse comments – imagine what it would be like if someone continually made up stories about you & put it in the public domain for 30 years & the effects that has on your mental health and your families!”

While the source of Warne's anger wasn't immediately clear, a recent tabloid article linked him with a reunion with ex-fiancee Liz Hurley.

"Shane Warne is open to getting married again and it seems he's already in hot pursuit of his chosen lady – his real-life runaway bride Liz Hurley!" Woman's Day wrote this week.

Warne and Hurley were together for two years starting in 2011, the pair getting engaged at one point.

However they broke off their relationship in 2012 after a trip to Australia that Warne later described as an "absolute circus" because of the intense media scrutiny.

“We couldn’t go anywhere else because we’d just get 30-40 people, photographers, news crews, everywhere we went,” he said last year.

“We had seven cars following us and a helicopter over our head just following us, running red lights, cutting off in front of us."

“(I’m) quite sad it’s over because I still care about her deeply and she’s a wonderful person."

Shane Warne's battle with gossip magazines

Warne has previously taken aim at gossip magazines over stories about his family.

Last year he blasted New Idea and Woman’s Day, accusing them of “making crap up”.

“I’ve read some crap in my time, but New Idea has taken the cake for making crap up now & it amazes me how the regulators allow this to continue in both Woman’s day and No idea!” he tweeted.

“It is absolutely disgraceful & both are never held accountable for making things up? Why?”

“Let’s hope the public have had enough too and decide to never purchase either of them again!

“Where are the regulators? I’m so reluctant to ever say anything because it draws attention to the rubbish and made up articles - but sick of saying nothing!”

The 51-year-old suggested the Australian public should join up and form a class action.

“I think it’s time all of us that have been wronged by both these magazines over the years get together and take them down!” he declared.

“Any law firms out there want to co-ordinate this. Maybe the media regulators will finally put their foot down too & hold them accountable! Who’s in?

“These trash magazines have also gone after all of my children over the years and Jackson lately too for no reason whatsoever! Just not fair or right on any level.

“Why haven’t the media regulators done something about this gutter journalism over the years & hold them accountable.”

Warne and ex-wife Simone Callaghan have three children together - daughters Brooke and Summer, and son Jackson.
