With his vacay days about to draw to a close, Cristiano Ronaldo has been keen on soaking up what little rays and water he has left.
From what we can gather, he and girlfriend Irina Shayk’s holiday was quite the globe trotting adventure, beginning on a private yacht in Turkey. Unfortunately for C-Ron, he inadvertently ended up in the papers after a couple of his water stunts raised eyebrows. Reports say he was being ‘reckless and spending’ on his jet ski just before his sailboat nearly collided with a fellow luxury liner. Now, we highly doubt the Real Madrid man was at the helm of his rented water vehicle – and we know for damn sure his girlfriend wasn’t either – so we hardly see the problem with the guy letting loose during down time.

Our long-term aim to ruin our language by forcing the Oxford English Dictionary to accept terms like short-tent in their weighty tome is newly invigorated, Kickettes!

And it’s black, the same shade as her kohl eye pencil. You think they did that on purpose?
Riiight…so, her and her beau are on a yacht in Turkey – a new and unsuspecting piece of holiday real estate (just like Cyprus) that we’ll be adding to our 2012 ‘ballers on breaks roulette wheel. Which is not to be confused with an automobile’s steering wheel, something Ms Shayk recently admitted she can’t sit behind in Russia. Legally, anyway:
‘In Russia, you know, we’re driving without license. We don’t even actually need it. You know, when the police man stop me I just can smile and be [flirty].’
That’s actually quite a common tactic used in all parts of the world, Iri. Even for mere mortals like ourselves.
