The talented artist, known for her hit “Whenever, Wherever,” recently parted ways with Gerard Piqué, aged 35, as they publicly announced their separation last week.

In a joint statement, the former couple, who share two sons named Milan (nine years old) and Sasha (seven years old), expressed their regret over the decision to separate. They emphasized the importance of privacy during this challenging time for the sake of their children’s well-being, as their kids remain their top priority. Grateful in advance for understanding and respect, they kindly requested their fans and the public to honor their need for space.

In 2011, the Grammy winner and athlete made their relationship public. Recently, rumors have been circulating in Spanish tabloids suggesting that the couple was on the verge of breaking up due to allegations of infidelity on the athlete’s part. According to El Periódico, the couple has been living apart for a few weeks after the pop star kicked the athlete out of their family home. Sources claim that the athlete has been enjoying a party lifestyle in a bachelor pad and going out with his teammates. Neither party has addressed the cheating allegations, but journalist Emilio Pérez stated that the pop star has decided to separate from the athlete. Although representatives have not commented on the situation, similar split claims were made in 2017, with reports stating that they were no longer living together and that the pop star initiated the separation. The Colombian press has been speculating about their relationship status, with a source stating that the pop star could no longer handle the situation.

According to Spanish publication El Periodico, rumors are swirling that Shakira and Gerard Piqué have decided to start living separately. Apparently, Shakira asked Piqué to leave their family home. Insider sources speaking to the Spanish website Cotilleo have indicated that this decision came from Shakira herself. This news coincides with hints of discord between the couple, which Shakira subtly conveyed in her latest hit song, “Te Felicito,” featuring Rauw Alejandro. The lyrics touch on feeling incomplete and being warned but not listening, as well as addressing the falseness in their relationship and how a breaking point was reached. The song seems to capture the emotions she’s experiencing during this challenging time.

The couple’s romantic journey began in 2011 when they met while filming the music video for Shakira’s World Cup anthem, “Waka Waka,” a year prior. Coincidentally, Piqué’s team won the World Cup that year, and Shakira performed during the final game, adding a touch of fate to their encounter. Although they had some correspondence in 2010, their relationship truly ignited at the start of 2011 when they officially became a couple.

Past reports had suggested that the former power couple may have faced separation rumors back in 2017, with speculations claiming that they were no longer residing together and that Shakira had initiated the split. In the fall of 2012, Shakira took to her Instagram platform to announce to her fans that she was expecting the football star’s son. Just two years after the birth of their first child, Milan, the couple happily revealed that they were anticipating their second child, Sasha, who was born in 2015. Despite not planning to tie the knot, the couple openly admitted that their relationship functions well as it is, as revealed in a recent conversation with Gary Neville on The Overlap.

Navigating parenthood: In the fall of 2012, Shakira excitedly shared her pregnancy news with her fans on Instagram, featuring a picture from 2015 of her with her partner Gerard Piqué. Piqué expressed contentment with their current situation, stating, “I love how things are right now. We have two children, aged nine and seven, and we function well as a couple. Marriage is not a necessity for us, and that’s perfectly fine,” highlighting their strong bond.

In celebration of Gerard’s 600th appearance for Barcelona in March, Shakira expressed her admiration and emotions through a heartfelt social media post, acknowledging this significant milestone. However, earlier in March, the Barcelona FC defender stirred controversy by claiming that playing against Espanyol brought him greater satisfaction than sex, much to the potential displeasure of his partner. Speaking on The Wild Project with YouTuber Jordi Wild, Piqué shared, “I’m thrilled that Espanyol has been promoted to the first division because playing in their stadium is an exhilarating experience. The constant whistling from their fans adds to the excitement. It’s an indescribable feeling, almost surpassing the pleasure of playing against Real Madrid.”

The singer known for her hit song “Hips Don’t Lie” previously commended her boyfriend’s parenting style, expressing that he is her utmost source of support in raising their children. She admires his down-to-earth nature and practical approach to solving problems. Whenever she feels overwhelmed with the task of keeping things organized and managing multiple responsibilities, he provides valuable perspective. Both actively participate in parenting, ensuring that neither feels burdened with the entire load. However, she playfully admits that he may indulge their children with a bit more chocolate than she would prefer.
