Shane Warne’s has bequeathed his multi-million dollar estate to his three children, but has completely disapproved of their mother and his former fiancé Liz Hurley.
Details of the Australian cricketing legend’s will, dated December 3, 2021, state that each of his children Jackson, Brooke and Summer will receive 31 percent of his $20.7 million fortune.
The remaining seven percent is to be divided among his brother Jason (two percent) and two and a half percent each among his brother’s children, Sebastian and Tyla.
His ex-wife Simone Callahan, to whom he was married for 15 years, is not in the will, nor is his ex-fiancée, actor Liz Hurley.

Warne also asked for his prized $375,500 vehicle collection — including a BMW, Mercedes Benz, and a Yamaha motorcycle — to be left to his son, Jackson.
The Supreme Court heard that his wealth was valued at $20,711,013.27.
His estate included $5 million in his Australian bank account and his $6.5 million seaside home in Portsea, Melbourne.
His assets also include a $2 million jet ski, more than half a million in another bank account, and nearly $3 million in stocks.
It was revealed that Warne had $295,000 in obligations, including a credit card and household bills.
This week the will was granted, meaning his three executors have the power to divide the estate among the beneficiaries.
Warne died in Thailand after a heart attack, aged 52, on March 4, 2022.
The cricket great was found by his friend Andrew Neophitou – who is one of the executors of his will – in a villa in Koh Samui after failing to meet the group for drinks at an agreed time.
Neophitou performed CPR until an ambulance arrived and transported Warne to the hospital where he was officially pronounced dead.
His death sent shockwaves around the world with tributes from politicians to great sportsmen, to all those who honored the cricketer with his presence.
More than 50,000 mourners also gathered at the MCG for its state memorial in March.
The leg spinner is regarded as one of the greatest cricketers of all time, with 708 Test wickets in 145 matches between 1992 and 2007.
Winning six Ashes, Warne was part of Australia’s 1999 World Cup victory and was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in 2013.
After his international cricket career, Warne was a color commentator and presenter for Channel 9 and Fox Cricket and also played in Australia’s Big Bash League.
