Currently, the model is seeing The Hangover I and II actor Bradley Cooper but the buzz about her past relationship continue to make it on the tabloids, magazines, newspapers, TV and of course, the internet.
In 2010, the model started a relationship with Real Madrid’s striker Cristiano Rolando. However, the football’s golden couple ended their relationship after five years of being together. This was further confirmed by Irina Shaky’s spokesperson through MailOnline. After the news exploded on the internet, speculations about why the couple decided to part their ways started to grow. Reports revealed that the relationship soured after the Russian beauty rejected Rolando’s invitation to attend a surprise birthday bash for Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro, the Portuguese footballer’s mother, who’s turning 60.
According to a source of Portugal’s Correio da Manha, prior to the invitation the golden couple hadn’t been getting on well lately. When Irina Shayk refused to go to attend the party and mouthed off about Dolores, her boyfriend took his mum’s side. It was the last straw that severely wrecked their relationship. However, Irina’s representative denied this speculation and explained that the she is close to Rolando’s family throughout the course of their long-term partnership.
Any negative reports about the Russian model and the footballer’s family are entirely untrue and have not been an issue in the cause of the broke-up. Interestingly, suspicious fans started to raise their doubts on the state of relationship of the two celebrities after Irina Shayk failed to support Rolando when he received the renowned FIFA Ballon d’Or award in Zurich. Instead of congratulating her ex-boyfriend, Irina posted photos of herself on Twitter, taken in an unnamed location where she enjoyed a winter getaway and celebrated her 29th birthday.
As of the moment, the Russian model has unfollowed Rolando Twitter. While the split still cause quite a stir in the past days, another rumored relationship subjected the Russian supermodel on the hot seat again. El Mundo newspaper published a report that the Irina Shayk had a relationship with the 79-year-old FIFA President Sepp Blatter.
Many fans were surprised when the publication assured them that the supermodel was one of the “many lovers” the businessman experienced in his life. Irina Shayk’s team said that the supposed romance is completely false and the report is only a pathetic attempt to defame the supermodel. On the other hand, Sepp is reported to have resigned from his position as FIFA president after allegations of corruption scandal has swelled.
What is true is the fact that Irina Shayk’s relationship with current boyfriend Bradley Cooper is getting very intimate each and every week. Indeed, an insider dished to E! News a report declaring that the pair is a couple at this moment and that most of their friends think they are a perfect match.
