Aussie cricket legend Shane Warne has been spotted ‘liking’ a number of Kyly Clarke’s photos on Instagram in a public display of support for the former WAG.

Kyly and Michael Clarke announced their split in February, ending their seven-year marriage.

“After living apart for some time, we have made the difficult decision to separate as a couple, amicably,” the pair said in a statement.

“With the greatest of respect for each other, we've come to the mutual conclusion that this is the best course for us to take while committed to the co-parenting of our daughter.”

Three months later, Warne has shown his support for his good mate’s ex by ‘liking’ a number of her Instagram photos.

Warne and Michael Clarke are known to be tight and the King of Spin would no doubt have grown close to Clarke’s wife during their relationship.

Warne liked one photo of Kyly in which she talks about her role as host of Channel 7 renovation show House Rules.

Michael and Kyly have reportedly agreed on a financial settlement and on arrangements to co-parent their four-year-old daughter Kelsey Lee.

Michael Clarke smacks down Lara Bingle rumour

Meanwhile, Clarke was recently forced to address a years-old rumour about how his relationship with Lara Bingle ended.

The former Australian cricket captain dated the model and TV personality for a number of years before they broke up in 2010.

Clarke and Bingle were engaged to be married, however they called things off shortly after a nude photo of Bingle from her relationship with AFL star Brendan Fevola emerged online.

One of the most infamous stories from the break-up revolves around Clarke allegedly flushing Bingle’s diamond engagement ring down the toilet during an argument.

Clarke has always denied the rumour and was forced to do so again on Monday after being asked about it by NRL journo Phil Rothfield.

“I don’t want to be rude but I want to know about that diamond ring,” Rothfield asked on Clarke’s Big Sports Breakfast radio show.

“What diamond ring?” Clarke said before Rothfield responded: “The diamond ring that went down the toilet 10 years ago.”

Clarke then explained what really went down.

“I know that people don’t like to believe me. How many times do I have to say, I am dumb, but I’m not that dumb,” he said.

“I’m not flushing any ring down any toilet at any stage. (Lara’s) not that dumb, she’s not flushing any ring either.”

Clarke claims the media hatched up the story because a plumbing truck was parked outside their Bondi apartment.

“Just because there was a plumbing truck people just assumed because we busted up, let’s go with this story,” he said.

“The plumber’s come to get Lara’s ring out of the toilet. Absolute made-up rubbish.”
