There have been reports swirling that soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and model Irina Shayk have split.
The 29-year-old Russian model has now fueled the rumors after “unfollowing” her beau of five years on Twitter. It seems silly, but is a good clue a couple has split these days.
Tongues were already wagging about a possible split after Irina was a now-show when Cristiano was awarded the FIFA Ballon d’Or award.
Ronaldo said in his speech, “I feel extremely happy and proud to receive this award and I want to keep challenging myself every day. I have to thank my family, all the people who support me and also my colleagues of Real Madrid and Portuguese National team that make me a better player every day.”
We noticed there was no mention of the brunette beauty!
Irina’s rep simply commented that the model had prior commitments, but the award presentation had been planned a year ago.
Shayk’s fans also noticed the model hadn’t bothered congratulating Ronaldo. Instead, she posted photos of herself on the beach celebrating her 29th birthday.
Irina and Cristiano have dated since 2011, but there were reports weeks ago the model had a falling out with Ronaldo’s mother over Christmas plans.
