the main thing
Shakira singer and FC Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué officially broke up last Saturday after twelve years of living together.
The news had the effect of a bomb on the planet people a week ago: after twelve years of love and two children, Shakira and Gerard Piqué announced their separation. The Colombian singer, revealed internationally by her tube “Wherever, whenever” and the FC Barcelona player, met in 2010 for the football World Cup. Shakira then came to live in the Catalan capital. If the couple did not give the official reasons for the separation, the daily The Newspaper evokes the footballer’s relationship with a 22-year-old blonde barmaid.
The day after the break-up was made official, Shakira was spotted Sunday night at Barcelona airport. She was returning from the Czech Republic where her 9-year-old eldest son, Milan, was playing in an international baseball tournament. Gerard Piqué was also there. At the end of the weekend, Shakira returned to Barcelona with her two sons while Gerard Piqué went on holiday to Les Madives with friends.
Shakira takes care of her father
At the same time, Shakira had to take care of her father, William, who fell ill in Spain and was hospitalized for a week. Neighbors had told reporters they saw the singer in an ambulance. On Monday, her father left the hospital to return to Shakira’s home. The singer has released a moving video in which she shows signs with words her father must read. “Cognitive simulation after trauma,” Shakira wrote on Twitter.
With my dad discharged, already at home and on the way up, helping him with his cognitive stimulation after the trauma. Thank you all for dressing us up with your immense affection.❣️ pic.twitter.com/YykUegL4ww

He can count on the support of his club. Asked by a Spanish journalist if the break-up would affect FC Barcelona, president Joan Laporta replied: “The club is on Piqué’s side. He knows he has our full support in these difficult times.”
“Our children: our top priority”
Shakira and Gerard Piqué said in a statement that “the well-being of our children is our top priority.” The singer is in the midst of promoting her new single “Te felicito” as a duet with Rauw Alejandro. She can also be seen on American TV in the jury of the already recorded “Dancing with Myself” show, which airs week after week.
Never married to Gerard Piqué, the singer will keep her fortune. Will she continue to live in the house bought jointly by the couple for 4.5 million euros in Esplugues de Llobregat, near Barcelona? Or will she want to live elsewhere? Will she stay in Barcelona, she is from Colombia? Questions the Latin star has been asking herself for several days.
