Christiano Ronaldo, 29, and girlfriend of 5 years Irina Shayk have called it quits. Breathe girls, breathe!

Rumors began to spread that the couple separated after the longtime Russian companion was not present at the Ballon d’Or presentation — an award given out to the world’s best male soccer player. The reason for the break-up is still uncertain, however, some believe it is because Shayk had missed a party for Ronaldo’s mother’s birthday.

Due to speculation, the Portugal and Real Madrid soccer star confirmed Tuesday (Jan. 21) in a written statement that he and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model are going their separate ways:

After dating for five years, my relationship with Irina Shayk has come to an end. We believed it would be best for both of us to take this step now. I wish Irina the greatest happiness.

Good luck, ladies. There must be a long line somewhere.
