The love story between soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo (29) and Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model, Irina Shayk (19), unfortunately came to an end.
“After dating for five years, my relationship with Irina Shayk has come to an end,” Ronaldo, said in a statement to the Associated Press. “We believed it would be best for both of us to take this step now.”
Ronaldo, who plays soccer for Real Madrid and Portugal, is believed to be one of top soccer players in the world – he has won three times the FIFA Ballon d’Or, including last month.
The rumoured reason of their break-up is that she apparently didn’t want to attend Ronaldo’s mother’s 60th birthday celebrations, according to a Portuguese magazine.
The Russian beauty has stopped following Ronaldo on Twitter and she didn’t attend the Ballon d’Or ceremony in Zurich.
Real Madrid TV presenter, Lucia Villalon seems to be the lucky girl who stole Ronaldo’s heart.
Rumors appeared when the journalist posted a photo with her and Cristiano Ronaldo, after winning this year’s Golden Ball, but that could not be confirmed- see pictures below.
