Cristiano Ronaldo: Armani Upgrade?
Word is traveling fast that Ronaldo has “dumped” Kim Kardashian’s derriere and was seen cavorting around Corsica with a Russian model last weekend. Airquotes are necessary since we do not sincerely believe Kim K. and C-ron were ever doing anything more than a horizontal shimmy. Plus, she slyly admitted last week that Ronaldo’s “a good guy” and “a good friend”. To us, this is a stretch of her imagination.
So, what’s there to know about this hook-up? For starters, Irina tweeted about a trip to Italy on the 17th of May, which has given the ever-reliable Spanish press enough hearsay to claim Shayk’s identity with grainy picture certainty. Adding more fuel to the fire, three days later Ronaldo took a private helicopter from an undisclosed locale to join up with his national teammates in Portugal. Even Sherlock wouldn’t know what to make of this.
But who cares. True or false, no one can doubt the sizzle factor of this alleged pairing. About Irina? For starters, she boasts a legit-model resume, including a trio of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition appearances and previous Guess Jeans print campaigns. Her current employer is the same as Ronaldo’s. She was formerly married to Linkin Park band member, Rob Bourdon.
