Shakira honored the memories of her tragic divorce from Gerard Pique with a mysterious post during the festive season of a complicated year.
The Colombian singer said that she went on vacation to Dubai for Christmas with her sons Milan, 9, and Sasha, 7.
The kids had their first Christmas without their father, Gerard Pique this year, and they’re expected to spend the New Year with their father, in the absence of their mother.
The pop star shared a cute snapshot on Twitter of herself and her two sons holding a falcon as they are all dressed in white during the Christmas holiday.
The singer captioned the photo, “In the desert looking for serenity this Christmas”.
According to sources, Shakira flew to the UAE on Wednesday and is scheduled to stay there through December 30 before giving the kids to their father.
According to the source, the ex-couple’s final argument contained the day the two boys would return with their mother after her January 5 move to Miami.
The footballer wishes to put off the relocation of his children to Miami because he wants to take his kids to the Three Kings procession in Barcelona. But he only has this new year day to spend quality time with the boys before they will join their mother in line with a signed agreement.
Meanwhile, Shakira has expressed gratitude to her fans and best wishes for the new year in her lastest post.
She penned: “Thanks for all the love and support you gave me and my kids during this year.”
“I wish you a sweet holiday. Here’s to a 2023 that’s filled with peace and hope.”
It makes sense given that earlier this year, in an interview with the magazine Elle, the celebrity recalled the “darkest time” of her life.
Following a 12-hour marathon conference with attorneys, Shakira and her ex-boyfriend agreed on a parenting arrangement for their two sons and showed up in court this month.
Following their dramatic divorce, the ex-couple also decided to sell their five-story Barcelona home.
Repeating the process in the US is the next step in their divorce.
In order to appear in her £12 million tax fraud trial, she will have to go back to Barcelona in 2023.
The mother of two faces six counts of tax fraud and has been warned that, if found guilty, she may receive an eight-year prison sentence.
The singer has previously refuted rumors that she is dating Gorka Ezkurdia, a 24-year-old Spanish surf instructor.
They were pictured together on a beach close to the northern Spanish city of Santander, which fueled the rumors.
Shakira remarked: “Out of respect for my children and the vulnerable moment they are going through, I ask the media to stop the speculation.”
“I do not have a partner or any interest beyond devoting myself entirely to my children.”
Pique and Clara Chia, his 23-year-old new lover, currently share a penthouse apartment.
Following unverified reports that Pique was having an affair with a younger lady, Shakira and Pique made their breakup public in May.
The soccer player’s romance with Clara Chia, 23, became public immediately after he and Shakira declared their breakup.
Why Did Shakira And Pique Break Up?
On the set of her official World Cup single “Waka Waka” in 2010, Pique got to meet Shakira.
According to Spanish media, the breakup between Pique, 35, and the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer was caused by Pique’s infidelity.
Shakira did appear to mention a second reason for the breakup when she finally broke her silence to address the breakup.
She stated in an interview with the magazine Elle that she had to “sacrifice” her career in order to support Pique’s and spend more time with the couple’s children, but that he had not shown the same level of commitment to her.
