After being together for a total of 12 years, Shakira and Gerard Piqué decided to split up, shocking their worldwide fan base.
In June 2022, when they finally decided to end their relationship, they made the following statement:
“We regret to confirm that we are separating.” They added, “For the wellbeing of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect their privacy.”
However, an old video interview with Gerard Piqué that has surfaced has put the former couple in the spotlight.
Page Six reveals that the controversial aspect of the video is that Gerard’s current partner, Clara Chia Marti, can be seen in the old Twitch interview that was recorded at the Barcelona home he shared with Shakira in August 2021.
Shortly after separating from the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer, Pique made the news that he was dating Clara, a 23-year-old woman. While Shakira was traveling with their children, newly released footage reveals that the footballer was already in a relationship with Clara.
This merely demonstrates that their breakup may have been caused by Gerard’s infidelity. In fact, the soccer player was linked to Clara Chia Marti, a 23-year-old student, even before their relationship ended. A Spanish media outlet even published images of the two kissing at the Summerfest Cerdanya festival in Catalonia not too long ago.
Oh, this is really hard to talk about personally, especially as this is the first time I’ve ever addressed this situation in an interview,” she said. “I’ve remained quiet and just tried to process it all. Um, and yeah, it’s hard to talk about it, especially because I’m still going through it, and because I’m in the public eye and because our separation is not like a regular separation. And so it’s been tough not only for me but also for my kids. Incredibly difficult.”
About living in Barcelona for Gerard’s Soccer career, Shakira shared
“And so, one of the two had to make that effort and that sacrifice. And I did it. I put my career in second gear and I came to Spain, to support him so he could play football and win titles. And it was a sacrifice of love. Thanks to that, my kids were able to have a present mom, and I have this amazing bond with them that is unbreakable and that sustains us. You know, that is it. That’s all I can say.”
Roberto Garcia, an ex-boyfriend of one of Shakira’s sisters, said in an additional interview with the Spanish media outlet EsDiario that despite the fact that Shakira and Gerard’s relationship appeared to be perfect to fans, they had issues months before they split up.
In addition, he went ahead and disclosed that money was the real reason. He even claimed that Pique had asked the Colombian singer for a significant investment in one of his businesses in addition to being caught cheating. However, the ‘Waka Waka’ singer denied that their relationship had been damaged in any way.
Shakira and Piqué were together for 12 years. They have two beautiful children, Milan, who is 9 years old, and Sasha, who is 7. In her 2017 hit song “Me Enamoré,” which translates to “I fell in love,” Shakira even wrote about the epic romance she had with Gerard Piqué.
