Is it over for Ronaldo and Shayk?
Cristiano Ronaldo might have won the Ballon d’Or, but he could have just lost his gorgeous girlfriend.
Model Irina Shayk was not by the Portuguese peacock’s side as he retained football’s highest individual accolade on Tuesday morning (Singapore time) in Zurich, Switzerland.
The PR company managing the Russian beauty played down her no-show citing “work commitments” to Goal.com for her absence.
This is in stark contrast to the previous year’s gala when the couple attended the awards looking all lovey dovey.
Shayk, who famously posed with Ronaldo for the cover of Spanish Vogue, was on holiday in the Maldives in the lead-up to the Ballon d’Or awards ceremony.
Madrid-based newspaper El Mundo Deportivo said the pair’s separation was all but certain, reporting that the Russian had unfollowed Ronaldo on Twitter.
However, a spokesperson for Shayk said that the Russian doesn’t follow the Real Madrid man on any social media platform, including Twitter.
If Ronaldo’s was already in the doghouse, pictures of him gawking at the leggy nominee for the Puskas Award for best goal in Zurich, Stephanie Roche, certainly won’t help his case.
