This is the end of a much publicized love and family story. During the summer of 2010, the singer Shakira, at the height of glory, met the Spanish footballer Gerard Pique. On the set of the clip Waka Waka, anthem of the Football World Cup, love at first sight was immediate between the two celebrities.
Two years after their meeting, the sublime singer announces that she is expecting their first child. On January 22, 2013, a boy named Milan Piqué Mebarak was born, then on January 29, 2015, the couple welcomed their second son, Sasha Piqué Mebarak. Against all odds and after 12 years together, Shakira and her companion officially announce their separation on June 4, 2022. “We regret to confirm that we are in the process of separating. For the sake of our children, who are our absolute priority, we ask for the respect of our private life”, affirmed the ex-lovers in a joint press release.
What happened ? For many weeks, rumors of infidelity have sprung up. Some claiming that the footballer would have deceived the interpreter of Chantaje. Spanish channel Telecinco has revealed how Shakira allegedly found out about her infidelity. While the star is fond of various jams, she would have found that her pots were emptied in an excessive way, but her husband consumed very reasonably, even little. More and more suspicious, Shakira would then have hired a private detective who would have discovered the affair of the sportsman with a young woman student of 23 years in public relations. A betrayal that will have got the better of their union.
