Cristiano Ronaldo dumped model girlfriend Irina Shayk after she decided not to attend his mother’s surprise 60th birthday party, according to reports.

It was initially speculated that Irina had been the one to end the relationship - but the Mirror understand this wasn’t the case at all.

The Real Madrid star set tongues wagging by turning up to the Ballon d’Or ceremony in Zurich on Monday without the Russian beauty.

And Irina added fuel to the fire days later by unfollowing the world’s best player on Twitter - a sure-fire sign that the relationship between the pair had come to an end.

Ronaldo was joined on stage at the Ballon d’Or ceremony by his son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, whose grandmother Dolores wanted Irina to assume the role of mum for her grandson.

That’s according to a source, who told the Mirror: “Dolores wanted someone who would assume the role of mum for Cristiano Jr.

“That was not a priority for Irina.”

The world is still awaiting confirmation about the split, but it’s looking extremely likely that Ronaldo will soon be on the lookout for a new partner.
