Irina Shayk & Cristiano Ronaldo split after three years together

Russian beauty Irina Shayk has reportedly dumped Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo, her partner of three years.

After her much noticed absence at the Ballon d'Or ceremony in Switzerland on Monday in which Ronaldo collected the award, there was lot of speculation in the media saying she kept away because they’ve ended their relationship. In his acceptance speech Ronaldo made no mention of thanking her which seemed to add to the rumors.

In the earlier weeks there was speculation that Shayk had fallen out with Ronaldo’s mother over Christmas plans. Irina has been sharing plenty of beach pictures and swimsuit shots on her Instagram in the past few days. The split is now seemingly confirmed, with the model unfollowing Ronaldo on Twitter yesterday and with claims being made that she dumped him.

In contrast, the happy couple were both in attendance when Ronaldo won the award last year, with them taking to social media afterwards to celebrate his achievements with fans. Irina has always being by the Real Madrid forward’s side at events. The couple met back in May 2010 through their Armani Exchange campaigns and it was not long before it was confirmed that they were dating in 2011.

Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo first reported the news, but neither have confirmed the split publicly. Expect things to become clearer in the coming days but for now its Ouch !!
