“We can confirm Irina Shayk has ended her relationship to Cristiano Ronaldo of five years. She has been close with his family throughout the course of their relationship,” Irina’s representative tells Us Weekly. “Any negative rumors with regards to Irina and the Ronaldo family are completely false, and have not been a factor in the cause of the split. Irina has no further comment at the time.”
Ronaldo is a soccer superstar who has played for Real Madrid since 2009 and started dating Irina in 2010 after meeting on the set of an Armani shoot. The couple posed together once again for the June 2014 cover of Vogue Spain; however, this time the two, both 29 years old, appeared wearing next to nothing.
The formal announcement of the breakup comes as little surprise to many, as rumors of a rocky relationship date back several months. Earlier in the week, Irina was nowhere to be seen while Ronaldo attended the annual FIFA Ballon d’Or in Zurich alone. New Year’s Eve was spent apart, plus Ronaldo failed to attend Irina’s premier of the movie Hercules in July.
