Over the weekend, it was confirmed that the World Best Footballer for 2014, Cristiano Ronaldo, broke up with his girlfriend of over 5 years.
But football star Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have quickly moved on from his model ex – with the 29-year-old athlete allegedly dating Spanish TV reporter Lucia Villalon. While Irina, the Russian supermodel, refused to support her former beau at his third prestigious Ballon d’Or win honor on January 12, the 26-year-old sports journalist was pictured celebrating with the Real Madrid player in Irina’s place.
Lucia was first linked to Ronaldo when she posted a photo of the pair on her Twitter account shortly after Cristiano received the golden soccer trophy in Zurich, Switzerland.
‘There are 3! Golden ball congratulations! Zurich 12/01/15,’ she wrote in the caption. The intimate picture of the pair follows confirmation of Cristiano and Irina’s split on Saturday.
And about why Ronaldo broke up with Irina, Irina’s spokesperson revealed: ‘We can confirm Irina Shayk has ended her relationship to Cristiano Ronaldo of five years.’ A massive argument between his mother and his longtime love may have resulted in the demise of their romance.
Cristiano’s alleged new beau, who is a devout follower of his successful sports career, is a state broadcaster who graduated with law and journalism degrees. Beauty and Brains!
