Australian spin great Shane Warne, 48, has always been in news for his off-field activities.

After rumours of his love life, this time around there are reports by Bauer Media's Woman's Day that the former cricketer's ex-wife Simone was 'tearing her hair out' over their son Jackson's, 18, interest in gambling.

Warne called the publication a 'disgrace' and called for action against made-up stories printed by the entertainment magazine.

Yesterday, he posted a series of tweets quashing the news. First he tweeted, "Please get your facts straight ! I've only ever done one exclusive interview in 25 years & that was with Hello magazine & my ex-fiance @ElizabethHurley -- yes it was syndicated too!"

Later, he wrote, "People can say what they like about me. But when these media outlets continue to make up lies & malicious stories about my children with no substance & harass them on a daily basis plus has an emotional affect to us plus other people & their families it's time to make a stand !!"
