Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo Split
Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo have split after five years of dating. The former couple’s breakup was confirmed by her rep on Saturday. In announcing the parting of ways, the spokesperson stressed that speculation about trouble between Shaky and Ronaldo’s family is untrue.
In a statement, the rep said, “We can confirm Irina Shayk has ended her relationship to Cristiano Ronaldo [after] five years. She has been close with his family throughout the course of their relationship. 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 spilt. Irina has no further comment at the time.”
The supermodel and the soccer star began dating in 2010. They’ve been followed by breakup rumors for months, but nothing had been confirmed until now. Last year, Ronaldo posed naked with Shayk on the cover of Spanish Vogue, shortly after she was blasted for posing topless for the #BringBackOurGirls campaign to raise awareness about hundreds of kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls. Shayk was the cover model for the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
