‘The lifestyles, more discreet on the part of the footballer contrasting with the more exuberant side of the artist, ended up becoming irreconcilable…

‘The separation happened a few weeks ago, after the summer vacation that the two still spent together in Greece, in early July.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Ruben for comment. 

News of the split comes just days after defender Ruben called on Portugal to tighten up at the back after shipping four goals in as many games during their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Portugal sit second in Group A with 10 points, trailing Serbia on goal difference heading into Tuesday’s game in Azerbaijan.

They needed two last-gasp Cristiano Ronaldo goals after going behind against the Republic of Ireland last time out to secure all three points.

 ‘We aren’t happy and that dissatisfaction comes from wanting to always be the best,’ Dias told a news conference last Monday.

‘The solution is where we always find the answer: within the group. That will be the base for us to build on and improve.

‘There’s always room for improvement and this is what we’ll look to do as a group, and ensure that we concede less goals.’
