Shakira and Boyfriend of 11 years, Gerard Piqué Have Separated



Shakira and her partner Gerard Piqué are taking time apart.

“We regret to confirm that we are separating,” the couple said in a joint statement Saturday. “We ask for privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our maximum priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect.”

The couple — who share two sons, Milan, 9, and Sasha, 7 — first confirmed their relationship in March 2011. They met on the set of her music video for “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” which served as the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The news of their separation comes after the Spanish news outlet El Periodico reported that the soccer player, 35, is living in his house in Barcelona again — and away from Shakira, 45, and the kids.

Fans are also taking note of the lyrics to Shakira’s newest song with Rauw Alejandro, titled “Te Felecito.”

“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.

Through the years, the couple would make sporadic red carpet appearances together and Shakira would support him at his soccer games— oftentimes bringing the kids along.
