Sexy movie star HUGH GRANT can't get over his gorgeous ex LIZ HURLEY - because she owes him money.
Hugh recently announced the end of 13-year relationship with the ESTEE LAUDER beauty, and now the NOTTING HILL star is fuming - because lovely Liz never paid for her half of their house.
He says, "I had this perfectly nice apartment in London and then she persuaded me to buy this enormous house in Chelsea, West London, and she said we'd split the cost. "So we bought it and signed the deeds together. Then when it came to the moment to actually pay for it, she pulled that old stunt on me, saying 'I haven't got my chequebook', and I went along with it. "A few weeks later I saw her writing some cheques for something else and I said, 'Darling, now might be a nice time to pay me back for the house. She said, 'No, I've been thinking about it and I'm not going to do it. It was as simple as that.
"I should've been angry, but all I can do is admire her - she's so barefaced."
