In 2010, he began dating Russian model Irina Shayk, whom he reportedly met through their Armani Exchange campaigns. Ronaldo and Shayk appeared together on the May 2014 cover of Vogue's Spanish edition. The couple ended their relationship in January 2015. Ronaldo stated that he does not own an entourage around him, and that he has only few close friends as well. Moreover, he admits to often preferring solitude while working, attributing it to his autonomous way of living, "In football I don’t have a lot of friends. People I really trust? Not many. Most of the time I’m alone. I consider myself an isolated person."
