Irina Shayk, who dated soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for four years, before splitting abruptly earlier this year suffered from a crisis in confidence during their time together. But she’s bouncing back now with a sizzling photo spread in Harper’s Bazaar China.

The Russian model’s stunning revelation came in an interview with Spain’s Hola magazine.

She said Ronaldo made her feel “ugly and insecure,” because he was the wrong man for her. “My ideal man is faithful, honest and a gentleman who knows how to treat women.

The same year they started dating in 2010, Ronaldo revealed that he had fathered a son after a one-night stand with a waitress in Los Angeles. Shayk stuck by him through the uproar.

He’s Roman Catholic and the out-of-wedlock birth caused an uproar in his home country of Portugal.

She continued to stick with him amid constant rumors about his flirting and womanizing. Shayk hinted at his infidelity. She told the Spanish magazine a relationship means sharing “the same energy to believe in a monogamous relationship.”

“I don’t believe in men who make us feel unhappy, because they’re boys not men,” she added.

Ronaldo, who turned 30 this year and may be going through an early mid-life crisis, has reportedly already moved on. He is rumored to be seeing Spanish TV presenter Lucia Villalon.

He previously dated English models Alice Goodwin and Gemma Atkinson. He was even rumored to have had a fling with Kim Kardashian.

Meanwhile, Irina has apparently thrown herself into her work. Check out her stunning photos in the Chinese edition of Harper’s Bazaar.
