Who is Emily Scott?

Emily is a 39-year-old Australian model. She and Warne began dating in mid-2014 but broke up in September of the same year. It has been said that the relationship of the cricket legend with the model was the last official known. Making public his romance with Scott at the time, Warne had written on Twitter: “Ps And yes I'm taking my girlfriend @EmilyLScott who's looking smoking hot too hahaha !!!” while going to Wimbledon to watch Nick Kyrgios play against Canadian tennis player Milos Raonic.

During the same time, Warne was captured with Australian singer Sophie Monk in London in July. Monk had also alleged that she shared a kiss with the spin king. But Warne denied it and in 2017, he oddly appeared to clean his image by tweeting: “I’ve been single for 3 years & not dated anyone or been on 1 date in that time. I’m lucky to have 3 awesome children who look after me + great family & friends too. I’m also very grateful to Sky, Star & Ch 9 for the opportunity to work on something I love - Cricket ! Thankyou....”

Meanwhile, Warne’s unexpected death has left many devastated. Famous as one of the greatest bowlers in cricket history, he was on a holiday in Thailand when he was found unconscious in his villa on March 4. Despite several attempts to save him by providing CPR, he was declared dead at the Thai International Hospital.

Shockingly, hours before his death, Warne was seen in a good shape and carrying some clothes at the Samujana Villas resort, where he was staying with friends. Nothing suspicious has been reported yet in his death but his family revealed that he was facing heart issues for some time. He also reportedly got Covid-19 twice. Besides, he had “completed a 14-day liquid only diet, described by his manager James Erskine as ‘extreme’ and ‘ridiculous.’”

Following Warne’s death, his parents – Keith and Brigitte Warne – released a statement: “The night of the 4th of March 2022 is when a never-ending nightmare began for our family, for that is the date we lost our much loved and admired son, father, brother and Uncle, 'Shane Keith Warne' a tragedy we will never come to terms with. To find words to adequately express our sadness is an impossible task for us and looking to a future without Shane is inconceivable, hopefully the mountain of happy memories we all have will help us cope with our ongoing grief.”

“Brigitte and I are most grateful for the many messages of love and support received over the past few days and thank one and all for their kind words of comfort. We also wish to acknowledge and thank those members of the media who are honouring our request to respect our family's privacy and who will continue to do so,” the devastated pair mentioned.
