Shakira finally confirms split with Barcelona Star Piqué
Shakira and her partner, Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué, have announced their separation in a statement posted on Saturday.
In a statement made by Shakira’s public relations office, the two wrote, “We regret to confirm that we are splitting.” “We beg that you respect our privacy for the sake of our children’s safety, which is our first priority.” Thank you for your patience.”
Shakira, 45, met the Barcelona defense while promoting “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” her 2010 World Cup song. Sasha and Milan are the couple’s two children.
In recent days, rumors of the demise of the couple’s 11-year relationship had gripped Spanish media, fueled by media reports that Piqué, 35, had left the family’s home in Barcelona and was living by himself in the city.
