Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was ‘shocked’ when an Australian model knocked back his advances during his tour Down Under.
Aline Lima, from Melbourne, was told by the 30-year-old Real Madrid star he did not mind she had a boyfriend and asked her to send him pictures of herself at the gym, according to the Mirror.
The Miss Latina Australia runner-up declined his request, saying: ‘No, my boyfriend would not be happy.’
Lima’s exchange with Ronaldo started off innocently enough when she messaged him on Instagram to ask if he had received a letter from her boyfriend, Alex, who was a big fan of Real Madrid.
During their conversation, the footballer also asked for the model’s number and offered her tickets to see his side take on Manchester City at the Melbourne Cricket Ground during the International Champions Cup match in July.
When suggesting they meet up, he said that she should bring a friend.
Lima approached him again to see if he would meet her boyfriend but it appeared he was more keen to get her alone.
‘Yes, beautiful. But it is difficult. I do not want to know man. I want to meet you,’ he replied via messaging service Whatsapp.
The saucy exchange comes after reports his supermodel ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk ended their five-year relationship when she found out he had cheated on her a number of times.
Shayk alluded to the allegations in a recent interview with Spanish publication Hola.
When asked whether she liked being in a relationship, the Russian beauty said: ‘Of course I prefer to be with someone, but with the right someone.
‘It’s very simple. You have to be faithful to your other half and not have secrets. That’s my rule.’
Their split was confirmed in January by Ronaldo himself, saying: ‘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’.
