Shakira and Gerard Pique have broken up, according to the Colombian singer and Barcelona star.
Milan and Sasha are the couple’s two boys, who have been together since 2010.
“We regret to confirm that we are parting ways,” Shakira’s communication agency said in a statement. We ask that you respect the privacy of our children, as their safety is our first responsibility. Thank you for your patience.”
It follows reports that the Barcelona defender was caught in bed with another woman.
Suzy Cortez, also known as Miss BumBum, said that Pique had hit on her during the scandal.
She went into detail about how she met Pique, including how she received texts from the soccer player asking for her measurements.
Gerard Pique wrote her messages, according to Cortez, although some of them were not pleasant.
“He was the one who sent me a more direct -message-. Messi and Coutinho were the only Barcelona players who never sent me anything. They are wonderful men who have a great deal of respect for their spouses. Cortez told El Diario NY that Shakira “didn’t deserve this.”
Shakira and Pique have reportedly been living apart for a few weeks after Pique was booted out of their family home.
He has been staying in a bachelor home and living a “party lifestyle” since the separation, according to Spanish publication El Periodico.
Shakira alluded at a split in their relationship in her current single, ‘Te Felicito,’ which she co-wrote with Rauw Alejandro.
