Cristiano Ronaldo and his girlfriend Irina Shayk have ended their 5-year romance, it has been confirmed.
A rep for the Russian model said in a statement on Saturday, ‘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.’
The rep also dismissed the rumor that the split was as a result of a family dispute involving Shayk and C.Ronaldo’s mother, saying, ‘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 won the Ballon d’Or for the third time earlier this month … and Shayk’s unusual absence at the ceremony triggered the split rumors.
