Irina Shayk is without question, Cristiano Ronaldo ’s most famous ex. At one point she seemed to have the keys to the Portugese man’s heart. After a four-year relationship, Cristiano left the Russian model and the explanation perfectly sums up his mentality. They made a handsome couple. The were happy, the seemed to be the real deal. But Irina did the unthinkable.
Did she cheat? No
She disrespected Maria Dolores, Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother. When Cr7 was throwing a surprise party for his mum’s sixtieth birthday, Irina refused to come, an insult that Cristiano Ronaldo could not let go.
As a family friend explained, Irina challenged Dolores and Cristiano Chose his Mother. Besides, Dolores didn’t think that she was the ideal woman for her son, she wanted someone who could be a mother to Cristiano Jr. That wasn’t a priority for Irina. From a young age, Cristiano Ronaldo has seen family as a priority, even more so after the death of his father in 2005.
Ronaldo maybe well rich and famous, but won’t stand for someone disrespecting his mother. CR7 did not hold the grudge for long, “we thought it would be better for us to make this decision now”, I wish her all the best.
But Irina is a strong woman, during a sports demonstrative swimsuits conference, she put Cristiano Ronaldo in his place,
“what I look for a man is honesty. I like men who are loyal to their girlfriends. I think it’s a man’s most important quality.”[Gistmania Reporters] Irina Shayk
It has to be said that the Russian was heartbroken by Cristiano. As one of her friends recalls,
“she was completely shocked and devastated. She (Irina) left immediately and spent New Year’s Eve on her own, crying in an airport before flying to the Maldives, where she spent her birthday alone. She had to face up to the facts. After having spent some time thinking long and hard, she felt she couldn’t ignore the signs.”[Gistmania Reporters] Irina’s Friend
Some weeks later, Irina Shayk consoled herself in the hands of American Actor, Bradley Cooper.
