Irina Shayk rubbishes claim family feud caused Cristiano Ronaldo split
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]rina Shayk has confirmed she’s split from Cristiano Ronaldo, but denies a feud with his family was to blame. Irina Shayk has denied a feud with Cristiano Ronaldo’s family was to blame for their split.
The 29-year-old actress and the Real Madrid superstar dated for five years, but recently decided to end their relationship amid claims Irina refused to attend a surprise party for his mother’s birthday.
However, representatives of Irina – who has modelled for Victoria’s Secret, among others – have dismissed the claim, insisting she has been close with his family “throughout the course of their relationship”.
What’s more, her representatives have told the Mirror newspaper that “any negative rumours with regards to Irina and the Ronaldo family are completely false and have not been a factor in the cause of the spilt”.
It had previously been reported that Ronaldo, 29, spent New Year’s Eve alone with his son after Irina decided not to attend his mum’s 60th birthday party.
Speculation about the status of their relationship increased after she failed to support the Real Madrid player when he scooped the prestigious Ballon d’Or award for the third time during a glitzy ceremony in Zurich last week.
Ronaldo also failed to mention her during his acceptance speech.
