Elizabeth Hurley has just received a belated birthday present.
A little over two months after the actress, who turned 46 last Friday, filed for divorce from her husband Arun Nayar, a London court granted a decree today to officially put an end to the couple’s marriage.
Hurley initially announced her split from the Indian textile heir last December amid speculation that she and Australian cricket player Shane Warne were having an affair. Meanwhile, Nayar has been dating model Kim Johnson.
“Not a great day,” Hurley tweeted at the time. “For the record, my husband Arun & I separated a few months ago. Our close family & friends were aware of this.”
Hurley and Nayar began dating in 2003 before tying the knot in March 2007 in two lavish ceremonies—one in a castle in England, the other in a palace in Jodhpur, India.
Neither bothered to show for today’s ceremony.
