Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk split up


The Russian model, 29, who began dating the Portuguese professional footballer after the two met on the set of an Armani ad in 2010, has confirmed their separation through a statement to Us Weekly.

“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,” the statement reads.

“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,” Shayk’s rep added.

Rumors that Ronaldo and Shayk have broken up circulated in recent months, after they attended various events separately.
