Cricketing great Adam Parore and his glamorous wife, Miller Rose Parore, have separated after two years of marriage.
Sources close to the pair confirmed that the couple — who wed in an intimate setting at Omapere in the Far North — had split.
Spy understands Adam is living in the marital home, and Miller Rose has moved into an apartment in central Auckland.
Friends say the split is amicable and the pair are on speaking terms.
Reasons for the break-up are being kept private but Spy understands 24-year-old Miller Rose’s desire to see the world were at odds with the wishes of 45-year-old Adam, who has two children with ex-partner, Sally Ridge, and is said to be more than happy settling into a home life routine.
Miller Rose is working as a waitress at award-winning restaurant Masu and also attended the recent Miss Auckland event on Queen’s Birthday weekend.
Last weekend she was also at the Friends of Starship foundation’s Diamond and Stars fundraiser.
In August 2013, Spy reported that Adam — who played 78 tests and 179 One-Day Internationals for the Black Caps between 1990-2002 — had dropped to one knee in exclusive New York restaurant Eleven Madison Park and proposed to Miller Rose.
In March 2014 the pair adorned the cover of Woman’s Day and the bride and groom took their vows under a pohutukawa tree on the lawn of the Copthorne Hotel at Omapere, with ribbon-tied white roses swaying above.
Neither Adam or Miller Rose returned messages this week.
