‘World’s hottest grandma’ and OnlyFans creator Gina Stewart has claimed that she was dating Shane Warne before his death, and opened up about the relationship they shared this year.
Stewart, who gained the fan-bestowed title of “world’s hottest grandma” after reaching the finals of the Maxim’s Finest Australia contest told Daily Star that she was dating the late cricketer, but he asked her to keep it out of the media.
“The world lost a legend and I lost a friend and confidante. The unthinkable happened,” she said. “I was dating Shane but it wasn’t well-known. He wanted to keep it personal.”
Warne died on March 4th 2022 from a suspected heart attack that took place in a Thai villa that he was staying in. He was aged 52.
Stewart dished that she and Warne connected immediately after meeting in Australia and went on to secretly date.
“He arrived on the Gold Coast and I met him after a cricket game.
“We hit it off straight away and spent the whole night talking and getting to know each other.

“I found him extremely interesting and I loved hearing about his life and what made him tick. We became extremely close and I made a promise to him that I would keep our story out of the public eye.
“At the time I had to be careful of the paparazzi as I had a publication trying to photograph me a lot where I lived.
“Shane and I would wear hats and sunglasses just to go out and we became creative on the Gold Coast and later Melbourne when I visited.”
“Shane was very unimpressed by the media and he did not want the story to get out so I had to decline offers and keep everything a secret.”
Stewart stressed to the publication that Warne didn’t want their relationship to be public knowledge, but has decided to speak about the affection they shared now.
“This is the first time I’ve spoken publicly about this and I always abided by his wishes and kept my life private.
“I couldn’t speak until now and I just want people to know he was a truly caring humanitarian.
“He gave back in so many ways through good deeds and he truly was a legend and someone who his kids can be forever proud of.”
The social media personality added that she spoke to Warne just days before his untimely death.
“I was in contact with him before he left [for Thailand] and he was a good listener. He made you feel like you mattered.
“He would tell me he felt so comfortable with me as if he had known me forever.”
