Gerard Pique and Shakira are not a couple anymore, as the Catalan and Colombian media have announced.
During the last two weeks, it has been speculated that the FC Barcelona defender and the Latin-American singer decided to go separate ways, and the separation between the two was inevitable.
Moreover, sources from the couple’s entourage claim the singer moved from the house she was sharing with Pique in Barcelona for weeks now.
In addition, the couple was not spotted together at Leo Messi’s wedding with Antonella Roccuzzo, event that took place in late June in Argentina.
Although the two stars denied to comment, a group of journalists spoke with Shakira’s close relatives who confirmed the rupture.
“The decision was taken by Shakira, in the end” revealed one of them.
The footballer and Shakira have two children together: Milan (4 years) and Sasha (2 years).
The couple started dating after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
It was a really demanding week for Gerard Pique, who was also seriously involved in the Independence Referendum of Catalonia, even willing to withdraw from the national team of Spain.
“People receive a lot of information and sometimes they are manipulated. It is a great challenge for me to try to transform this situation around myself. I am convinced that there are very many people in Spain who are in favor of Catalonia’s independence”, said the FC Barcelona player.
