Who has Irina Shayk dated? 

The model has had a few high-profile relationships; she reportedly dated Linkin Park drummer Rob Bourdon from 2007-2009 although they kept their relationship out of the public eye and neither have ever spoken out about the romance. 

Irina reportedly met Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo on the set of an Armani ad campaign in 2009.  Despite usually being very quiet about her private life Irina seemed to be happy to flaunt her relationship with the footballer - we can’t think why.

The couple often posted images together enjoying lavish holidays, attending events together and even posed together for the front cover of Vogue Spain. A rep for the model confirmed the pair had split due to the relationship fizzling out - however, there were rumours of infidelity on Cristiano's part. The professional footballer, currently playing in the Saudi League, moved on with Georgina Rodríguez a year later.

Bradley and Gaga sparked rumours of a relationship when they performed an intimate edition of “Shallow” at the 2019 Oscars - whilst Irina sat in the audience. Rumours were squashed with Gaga saying “They were simply acting love-up because they were performing a love song.” Irina was actually one of the first people in the audience to get up for the standing ovation. However, Bradley and Irina split less than six months later.
