Shakira and Gerard Pique seem to be on the verge of saying goodbye after 12 years of love as reports in Spain claimed that the music legend could break up with the FC Barcelona defender over issues related to infidelity.
Shakira and Pique have been dating since after the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. They both met on the set of the World Cup theme song Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) video shoot featuring the footballer.
Shakira and Pique started dating less than a year after the World Cup and less than a year after the 45-year-old Colombian singer ended her relationship with a 48-year-old Argentine lawyer, Antonio de la Rúa, a son of a former president of Argentina, Fernando de la Rúa.
Even though the age difference between Shakira and Gerard Pique is 10 years, the love affair has been relatively smooth as there were little or no reports about scandals. They have been like that for the past 12 years even though they are yet to be legally married.
Note that the relationship between Shakira and Gerard Pique has produced two children – Milan born on 22 January 2013 in Barcelona, and Sasha born on January 2015 in the same city.
Since 2011, Shakira and Gerard Pique have been living in the city of Barcelona together with their two kids.
The crack in the relationship between Shakira and Gerard Pique
Shakira and Gerard Pique are ten years apart in terms of age but that has never influenced their relationship negatively in the last 12 years. But the year 2022 seems to be one of those years that might not end too well for the union.
Recently, a Spanish publication, El Periodico claimed that Gerard Pique has temporarily moved out of the home he shares with Shakira to a private apartment in the city.
The two lovers decided to temporarily stay apart after Shakira allegedly caught Pique with another woman.
However, a check on the separate Instagram pages of Shakira and Gerard Pique on June 2, 2022, showed that things have not gone out of hand yet as both lovers are yet to delete pictures flaunting their love affair.
Reports in Spain claimed that the 35-year-old FC Barcelona defender has been seen partying with friends and in the company of women in recent times which showed how huge the crack in the relationship has become.
Shakira’s indirect confirmation that something is wrong in her relationship with Gerard Pique
In April 2022, Shakira teamed up with 29-year-old Puerto Rican musician, Rauw Alejandro, to release a song titled: ‘Te Felicito’. In Shakira’s part, the Colombian musician sang about a cheating character who was apologizing for cheating on her.
The Colombian singer went as far as singing that she doesn’t “ride that motorcycle anymore” which could mean that she might not accept the character’s apology.
Below is the lyrics from Shakira’s ‘Te Felicito’
“For completing you I broke into pieces; they warned me, but I did not pay attention,” she sings. “I realized that yours is false; it was the drop that overflowed the glass; do not tell me you’re sorry, that seems sincere, but I know you well and I know you lie.
“I congratulate you, how well you act, of that I have no doubt; with your role continues, you look good that show”.
“I don’t buy that cheap philosophy, I’m sorry, I don’t ride that motorcycle anymore; I can’t stand two-faced people; I used to put my hands on fire for you and you treat me like one more of your whims; your wound didn’t open my skin, but it opened my eyes.
“My eyes are red from crying so much for you; and now, it turns out that you are sorry; it sounds sincere, but I know you well and I know that you lie; I congratulate you, how well you act.”
