Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo have called it quits.

The 29-year-old Russian Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and Victoria's Secret model and the 29-year-old soccer star, world player of 2014 who was Team Portugal's forward in the most recent World Cup, had dated for five years.

On Saturday, a rep told E! News that Shayk and Ronaldo have ended their relationship. The soccer star has not commented. The news followed recent breakup rumors.

The rep added that Shayk "has been close with his family throughout the course of their relationship" and that "any negative rumors with regards to Irina and the Ronaldo family are completely false and have not been a factor in the cause of the spilt."

During their relationship, the two often attended celebrity events together, such as the Professional Soccer League Awards gala in Madrid, Spain last October. Months earlier, they also posed for a racy, intimate cover for Vogue Spain.
