Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne has taken aim at Woman’s Day for publishing what he calls “total lies” about his 19-year-old daughter, Brooke.
Speaking to the Herald Sun, both Warne and his ex-wife Simone Callahan said they felt the need to address the claims publicly to ensure the reputation of their daughter is in tact.
The move comes after the magazine published quotes from an “anonymous” source saying Brooke was a “wild girl” who “could drink all her mates under the table”. The story was picked up by other news outlets who gave voice and unfounded credibility to the “anonymous” source, with few offering the 19-year-old a right of reply or a chance to clear her own name.
“This was the last straw. This latest article they have published has no facts to it whatsoever and is total lies,” Warne told the paper.
