Irina Shayk 'felt ugly and insecure' next to Cristiano Ronaldo
Nearly two months after their high-profile break-up, Russian supermodel takes another dig at Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo; says real men are honest and know how to treat women
Despite having broken up with Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo almost two months ago, Irina Shayk still can't seem to resist taking a dig at her ex-boyfriend.

The Russian supermodel has claimed in an interview that she felt 'ugly standing next to the wrong man' — a thinly-veiled reference to Ronaldo, according to the Daily Mail.
"My ideal man is faithful, honest and a gentleman who knows how to treat women. I don't believe in men who make us feel unhappy, because they're boys not men," the 29-year-old told Spanish magazine Hola.
She added: "I thought I had once found the ideal man but it didn't turn out that way." "I think a woman feels ugly when she's got the wrong man at her side. I've felt ugly and insecure."
This is not the first time Shayk has taken a jibe at her ex-boyfriend of five years since their break-up in January.
A month back, she had told E! News: "What I'm looking for in a man is — I think I love honest men and I love a man who is loyal to women. I think this is (the) most important thing in (a) man."
Apart from a statement announcing their break-up, the Real Madrid ace has kept mum on the split. The statement, which sought to convey that the break-up was amicable, read: "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."
