Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk Five Year Romance

Cristiano Ronaldo’s relationship with Irina Shayk was the most prolonged and people thought they would marry each other as they made a perfect couple. They ended their relationship earlier 2015, and while it was heading towards marriage despite their long-distance relationship – things took a turn for the worst and now Irina’s taken a thinly-veiled swipe at her ex.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk confirmed their shock split earlier this year, calling time on their five-year romance, leaving many to question where the hell did it go wrong?

They appeared to be one of showbiz’ hottest and most solid couple, with stunning model Irina spending time with the Real Madrid football ace’s son, and engagement rumours.

He even appeared to call her his “wife”, sparking rumours that the genetically-blessed couple had wed in secret.

But now Irina, who has been linked to Hollywood star Bradley Cooper, has given a bombshell interview to Hola! revealing that her next man HAS to be faithful.

The Russian beauty laid into the striker by admitting: “Of course I prefer to be with someone, but with the right someone” when asked if she preferred to have a partner or be alone.
