LISBON, Jan. 20 -- Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo confirmed on Tuesday that he has split up with his girlfriend and model Irina Shayk.

"After dating for five years, my relationship with Irina Shayk has come to an end," he said in a statement.

"I wish Irina the greatest happiness," he added.

Rumors of a split up between the couple, both 29, emerged recently after the recent FIFA Ballon d'or award ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland, which Russian model Shayk did not attend. Ronaldo did not mention her in his acceptance speech.

Shayk was also reported having unfollowed Ronaldo on social networking site Twitter.

According to Portuguese media reports, Shayk didn't get on well with Ronaldo's family and refused to attend his mother's birthday party, which led the couple to row and to the end of their 5-year romance.

Ronaldo broke a record in last season's Champions League scoring 17 goals and helped his club Real Madrid clinch its 10 title.

He has a 4-year-old son called Cristiano Junior, whose mother' s identity has been kept a mystery. Ronaldo was given full custody of the child.

Portuguese media have speculated that Ronaldo might already have a new girlfriend, the Spanish journalist and presenter Lucia Villalon.
