Earlier this week, Irina Shayk all but confirmed the end of her five-year romance with football ace Cristiano Ronaldo when she unfollowed him on Twitter.
And it has now been reported that things soured between the pair after model Irina refused to attend a surprise 60th birthday party for the Real Madrid striker’s mother, Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro.
According to Portugal’s Correio da Manha, the Russian beauty told her beau that she would not be attending the bash in his native Madeira, and the ensuing row irreparably wrecked their relationship.

‘They had such a big row that he ended up spending New Years Eve alone with his son.
‘Irina mouthed off about Dolores and Ronaldo took sides with him mum. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back because they had hadn’t been getting on well in the last few months.’

The publication also claimed Irina decided to stay in a hotel during one of her recent trips to Madrid because Dolores. who watched proudly as her son won his third Ballon d’Or on Monday, was at Cristiano’s luxury home on the exclusive estate La Finca.
‘Dolores thinks Irina wasn’t the right woman for Ronaldo’s son,’ the source said. ‘She wanted someone who would, in the future, assume the role of mum for Cristiano Jr. That wasn’t a priority for Irina.’
Along with Dolores, Cristiano is raising four-year-old son Cristiano Jr., whose mother’s identity has been fiercely guarded by the sportsman.
