Rumours of split sparked recently when Shayk unfollowed the footballer on Twitter.
Russian model also sparked split rumours when she did not mark her attendance in Zurich, Switzerland, when Ronaldo, won his third prestigious FIFA Ballon d'O award. The Real Madrid star too made no mention of the beauty while collecting the trophy.
The pair's split appeared to be confirmed after leading Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha, claimed he had told his family that his relationship with Shayk was over.
The pair were dating since 2010. The article featured the headline, “CR7 confirms to his family that he is separated. He has finished his romance of nearly five years with Irina.”
Things started to get nasty when the model allegedly clashed with the ronaldo's mother over Christmas plans. In addition to this, Ronaldo failed to wish her a happy birthday on January 6, but instead sent out a promotional tweet from a recent flight with his team mates.
