What A Week For Ronaldo – Wins The Ballon d’Or & Dumps The World’s #1 WAG Irina Shayk
It’s not every week that you win the award for the best footballer in the World from the previous year and also dump one of the world’s hottest Super Models. Such was the week for Real Madrid and Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo. On Monday, Ronaldo won the FIFA Ballon d’Or over the likes of Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer in a ceremony Zurich, Switzerland. Ronaldo’s girlfriend of 5 years, Irina Shayk, was noticeably absent from the event. The split between the couple was all but confirmed when the #1 WAG on our All-Time World Cup WAGs Countdown unfollowed Cristiano on Twitter. Apparently, the break up happened as a result of a rift between Ronaldo’s mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro and the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl. Irina refused to attend a surprise 60th birthday party for Ronnie’s mom and according to the Daily Mail, “Dolores thinks Irina wasn’t the right woman for Ronaldo’s son…She wanted someone who would, in the future, assume the role of mum for Cristiano Jr. That wasn’t a priority for Irina.” We saw where Ronaldo’s allegiances lie when his mother and his son (from a mystery woman) accompanied him to the awards instead of Shayk.
Obviously, there are probably millions of girls submitting applications to become the next Cristiano Ronaldo WAG, hell he had numerous girls in our top-55 of All-Time, but might we be seeing a case of an over-bearing mother and a bit of a mama’s boy here? Irina Shayk is one of the class models on the face of the Earth and certainly a step up from the Paris Hilton’s and Kim Kardashian’s of the world (2 skanks Ronaldo has previously been with). If Irina isn’t good enough for Cristiano, then who is? It’s time to put mom in her place Ronnie.
