Colombian pop star Shakira and her partner, Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué, have split, the couple announced in a statement released on Saturday.
“We regret to confirm that we are parting ways. For the well-being of our children, who are our top priority, we ask for respect for privacy,” the two said in a statement released by Shakira’s public relations firm.
Shakira, 45, met the Barcelona defender while promoting her 2010 World Cup anthem, “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)”. The couple have two children, Sasha and Milan.
Spanish media reported the alleged separation of Shakira and Piqué, after the singer discovered a sentimental relationship between the soccer player and another person. Before the news, several users of social networks resumed the moment in which Henry Cavill thought he saw the Colombian in a premiere and was stunned.
At the same time, Internet users highlighted the fact that Chris Evans immediately began to follow the Colombian on Instagram, something they interpreted as a personal interest in the possibility that she was single.
However, what happened with the one who gives life to Superman took place on a 2015 red carpet of the tape The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (CIPOL’s agent) in New York, which Shakira did not attend.
To this day Cavill has a relationship with Natalie Viscuso, although, at the last Cannes festival, Shakira did steal several glances clad in a black dress with long gloves.
Piqué would have been unfaithful with a younger woman
The Spanish press assures that Piqué had an affair with a 20-year-old model that, according to reports, ended in the move to his bachelor’s house in Barcelona where he has lived for weeks.
“The singer has caught him with another and that is why she would have made the decision to separate,” said Laura Fa, who together with Lorena Vázquez are the owners of the podcast mamarazzis.
However, other communicators like melih esatThey have different theories about the alleged infidelity of the Barcelona center-back.
“Shakira captured Gerard Piqué having an affair with another woman. That woman turned out to be the mother of the young Barcelona star Paul Gavi. Gavi is not aware of the incident,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
Neither of the two involved has given any statements in this regard or has spoken in front of the press, however, Shakira released the first single from her new album just a few weeks ago, nothing less than the song “I congratulate you” which, precisely, speaks of a love disappointment.
“I congratulate you” by Shakira, talks about a love disappointment
“I congratulate you, how well you act, I have no doubt about that, with your role continue, that show suits you well. I don’t buy that cheap philosophy, I’m sorry, I don’t ride that bike anymore, I can’t stand two-faced people, I put my hands on the fire for you and you treat me like one of your cravings. Your wound did not open my skin, but my eyes did, they are red from crying for you so much”, sings the interpreter together with Rauw Alejandro.
Based on the rumors, other media assure that the couple has already started the separation process and seeks to establish custody of the two children they procreated, Milan and Sasha, since Shakira would be looking to leave Barcelona where she has no family and is persecuted from years for Treasury.
“Piqué refuses to separate from his children and alludes to the fact that the children were born in Barcelona, they have grown up here and they have their school and friends here,” reads the portal Informalia.
