Pop sensation Shakira and Gerard Pique announced their separation in June of this year. The couple, who began dating in 2011, had previously made headlines after reports surfaced that Shakira caught the professional athlete having an affair. They then refrained from handling the claims. Before calling it quits, the Dancing With Myself jury and Pique welcomed sons Milan, now 9, and Sasha, now 7. Although they were together for over a decade, the couple never tied the knot. Now Shakira has come forward to talk about her breakup with Pique and how it affected her relationship with her children and family.
In an interview with Elle, the Girl Like Me singer revealed that she stayed a mom over the whole thing because she still agreed. She said: ‘I kept quiet and just tried to process it all. It’s hard to talk about it, especially because I’m still going through it, and because I’m in the public eye and because our divorce is not like a regular divorce. And so it was hard not only for me, but also for my children.”
Shakira revealed her thoughts on the constant media attention and how it affected her children, saying, “What is also real is the disappointment of seeing something as sacred and so special as I thought the relationship I had with the father of my children and see that turned into something vulgarized and made cheap by the media And all this while my father has been in ICU and I have been fighting on several fronts As I said this is probably the darkest hour But then I think of all those women around the world who are going through hardship, who are going through a situation as bad as mine or as difficult as mine or worse.”
Shakira and Gerard met on the set of her music video for the FIFA song “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).” The two announced in 2011 that they were together in a Facebook post. On June 4, 2022, Shakira and Gerard announced their separation in a joint statement. They wrote: “We are sorry to confirm that we are breaking up. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect our privacy. Thank you for your understanding.” The Barcelona-based footballer has been with Clara for the past few months. According to The Sun reports, Clara Chia Marti is a student who also works for him in his office and organizes events. They have kept quiet about their relationship, but the people around them all know what’s going on.
