Elizabeth Hurley isn't the only one with marital drama.

"Sadly and unfortunately, Simone and I split up a while ago," the 41-year-old wrote of his wife. "Our close friends and family were informed at that time. It is a private matter so we did not make it public. We remain friends and will continue to be good parents."

Just hours earlier, Hurley wrote a similar message about her own marriage: "Not a great day. For the record, my husband Arun and I separated a few months ago. Our close family & friends were aware of this."

After dating for five years, she and Indian textile heir Nayar wed lavishly in March 2007.
