Model Faye jets off to Portugal amid Sean St Ledger Twitter split

Top model Faye Rooney has jetted off to Portugal in the wake of her high-profile break up with soccer star Sean St Ledger.
The Ireland player claimed on Twitter earlier this week that she had ended the one-year relationship by text message, much to his obvious dismay. And now the shapely brunette (22) has flown off for a relaxing sun-kissed break with her family as she waits for the controversy to die down.
Neither she nor Sean have publicly contacted each other on Twitter since the break-up.
However, he hit back at a poster on the social networking site who asked if Faye had moved on to a male friend she was pictured with en route to the Forbidden Fruit festival.
“Not funny,” the soccer star retorted.
The pair hit the headlines on Tuesday after St Ledger posted the inflammatory Tweet about his former love. In a message to the Assets model seen by his 44,000 followers, he wrote: “Sad to see you break up with me over text… I obviously wasn’t enough for you.”
He has since deleted the tweets, but not before joking with one fan how he had already joined singles’ website ‘Tinder’ as he moved on from the break-up. But Faye claimed that the pair had merely had a "silly tiff” and it had all been blown out of proportion.
The pair had been dating for nearly a year. St Ledger took Faye to Dubai for a pre-Christmas break as he showed her the high life.
Well known in Dublin social circles, the soccer star was also linked with Lisa Nolan and Hayley Ryan in the past.
