Former cricketer Shane and British actress Liz sparked break up speculation when eagle-eyed Twitter users noted that the couple hadn't communicated via the social networking site for a few weeks.
Shane also failed to name check Liz when he thanked friends and family for their well wishes on his 44th birthday earlier this month.
However, Shane has now taken to Twitter to clarify the speculation, saying: "Some of the reports re EH & me r absolute rubbish. Yes we're sorting through some (private) issues. But we're not throwing the towel in yet."
Elizabeth added: "Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now."
Shane and Elizabeth became engaged in October 2011 after Shane popped the question at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. They were first romantically linked in July 2010, and that December were photographed kissing in London.
It's thought Shane is currently in Australia while Elizabeth is in her native UK.
