Rachel Hunter has been dumped by her toyboy lover less than two months before they were due to wed, British tabloid The Sun reports.

Ice hockey star Jarret Stoll stunned the New Zealand model by walking out without even saying the reason, the newspaper said.

It reported that Stoll told guests by email that the star-studded ceremony on August 14 was cancelled.

A source close to Hunter, who was formerly married to rock star Rod Stewart, told the paper: "She is absolutely devastated. Everything was in place for their wedding - she had the venue, the designer dress, the guest list.

"She has absolutely no idea why Jarret has done this. It sounds like it could be a classic case of cold feet. He is a fair bit younger than her."

The Los Angeles Kings ice hockey player is 27 while Hunter, who has two children Renee and Liam by her relationship with Stewart, is in her late 30s.

Hunter and Stoll met two years ago through Hunter's son Liam, 13, a talented ice hockey player coached by Stoll.
