Elizabeth Hurley's marital drama isn't quite over yet.

After the model-turned-actress, 45, was photographed kissing Australian cricket player Shane Warne, 41, she Tweeted that she and businessman hubby of three years Arun Nayar had "separated a few months ago." (Warne made a similar announcement about his marriage shortly after.)

But a source tells UsMagazine.com the split wasn't exactly that clean.

"They had been having marriage problems for some time, but Arun wasn't prepared to give up so easily," says the insider. "Liz, on the other hand, gave up and didn't tell her husband. Instead she went out and found someone else and then broke the news to him. He is gutted."

Behind the breakup? "He wanted children so badly," says the insider, while Hurley, who had son Damian with Steve Bing in 2002, "didn't want to go through the pain of IVF. Liz doesn't compromise, everything was her way or no way."

Now, says the source, Nayar is scared he won't be able to see Hurley's son. "He doesn't want to lose Damian," says the insider. "They are so close -- he is 'Daddy' to Damian. And he's embarrassed that his marriage fell apart so publicly. He feels Liz intentionally humiliated him."

As for Hurley's new romance, "It's a rebound," sniffs the insider. "They'll be over before you know it."
