New allegations emerge about Warne

New allegations about Shane Warne's behaviour emerged as the federal government renewed calls for him to be banned from charity games while serving his drug suspension.

A married Melbourne woman - an exotic dancer - is threatening to reveal details of her alleged relationship with Warne while a former employee of Cricket Australia (CA) claimed the organisation received regular complaints about his behaviour.

Celebrity agent Harry M Miller said the 38-year-old Melbourne woman wanted to come forward because of the unfair treatment she thought was being given to South African Helen Cohen Alon, who has accused the cricketer of harassing her.

"She says all the things that happened to her, this South African woman, happened to this woman as well," Miller told the Nine Network.

"The stuff this woman alleges, if it's true, will make a huge noise everywhere."

And the female former CA marketing employee, talking on the condition of anonymity, said Warne had been the subject of almost daily complaints from the public for "several years".

"There's just too many ladies with too many stories," she told Channel Seven with her face hidden and voice distorted.

"He made life very difficult for the staff there."

Peter Young, CA general manager, said he didn't know what the ex-staffer was talking about.

"I've been here for nine months and it's not a fact that we get complaints about Shane Warne every day of the week," Young said.
