It's over between Shakira and the footballer Gerard Piqué: the couple separates
Steph Deschamps / June 6, 2022
Many rumors inflamed social networks in recent days, the announcement is now official. In a statement published in the Spanish press, Shakira and Gerard Piqué have just confirmed their separation. We regret to confirm that we separate. For the well-being of our children, which is our top priority, we ask for privacy. Thank you for your understanding, they explained via the agency EFE.
The Colombian singer and the Spanish footballer have formed for over 12 years one of the most mythical couples of stars in show business. They met in 2010 shortly before the World Cup in South Africa, for which the artist had interpreted the official anthem, Waka Waka. The tube had brought luck to his future companion because he became, a few weeks later, world champion with the Spanish selection. The story had then taken on the appearance of a dream, the two announcing in 2013 the birth of their first child, Milan, and later the little Sasha, born in 2015. Media couple, they lived however a relationship at a distance most of the time because of their respective careers. It's like being married to a soldier, except that he's not likely to die in battle, Shakira had humorously told Hello magazine in 2017.
But in recent weeks, many rumors have emerged about the couple. So much so that the singer herself had to respond to one of them at the end of the week. While it was said that she had been taken to the hospital due to an anxiety attack following his separation, she denied on Twitter and commented: I received worried messages about people who say they saw me in an ambulance in Barcelona. I want to clarify that these are photos that were taken on May 28, after my father unfortunately suffered a fall. That day I accompanied him in an ambulance to the hospital where he is recovering well. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support and love. Gerard Piqué, meanwhile, had no further comment.
