Tottenham Hotspur attacker Delle Ali and his model girlfriend Ruby Mae have called it quits on their relationship.
Reports claim one of the major reasons for the break up was Delle Alli’s obsession with the online video game Fortnite according to The Sun.
Aside from Fortnite, a source further told The Sun that the relationship has been turbulent over the last few months.
The two’s relationship was initially confirmed five years ago when they publicly shared a kiss during England's shock 2-1 defeat to Iceland at Euro 2016.
Mae, popular model who has worked with brands including Hidden Fashion, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, was living with Dele Alli but latest reports suggest she has moved out of their London home.
"Their relationship has been turbulent, but it now feels very much like the end. Ruby is sad but looking out for herself now. She had enough of Dele's good-time nature, and packed up her things. She's looking after number one from here."
The couple endured a lot together and were both present during a burglary incident at their home and robbed the football star at knifepoint in May 2020.
A quick Instagram check also revealed the pair have unfollowed each other on the photo-sharing platform.
On the football pitch, Alli has been frozen out of the Spurs’ squad for a large part of the season but he seems to be finding his footing under Jose Mourinho.

In Tottenham’s last outing, the England international scored a superb overhead kick as his side comfortably advanced to the last 16 of the Europa League at the expense of Austrian outfit Wolfsberger.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has taken a dig at one of his players Dele Alli after the heartbreaking home defeat against Chelsea on Thursday night, February 4.
Spurs went into this game with the hopes of getting the maximum three points so as to help their position on the Premier League table, but Spurs suffered a defeat.
Jorginho's 24th-minute penalty was all the Stamford Bridge landlords needed for them to get the three points against Tottenham who were without star striker Harry Kane.
