Shakira and Piqu Announced their Separation in June
The two released the following statement on June 4 to proclaim their separation: We regret to confirm that we are separating.
Because the safety of our children is our top priority right now, we kindly request your respect for their privacy. I sincerely appreciate your consideration and respect.
On the sets of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Anthem, Waka Waka, Shakira and Piqu became friends. Their relationship began in March 2011. The 35-year-old footballer resigned from the support in November, five months after they officially announced their split.
Numerous people have been talking about me over the past few weeks and months. I haven’t said anything up until now. I want to talk about myself now, though.
The time has come to put an end to this quest. I’ve always maintained that Barca would be the only team left. And that’ll be the case, Piqu said on November 3.
The Pop Star Opened Up About her Break Up Recently
In a September interview, Shakira discussed her split and referred to it as the “darkest hour” of her life. It’s very difficult for me to discuss this personally since I’m still going through it, I’m in the public glare, and our separation is not like a typical split. It has therefore been difficult for me as well as for my children, she said.
The only place I can hide from them with my children is in my own home. We can’t go out for ice cream, a walk in the park, or any other activity without photographers following us, you know. Consequently, it is challenging. She continued, “And I’ve attempted to keep the situation hidden from my kids.”
