The Curtain falls on the Shakira-Pique Romance



Gerard Pique and Shakira

After much speculation and debate on their long standing romance between Gerard Pique and Shakira Isabel Mebarak finally comes to its end.

This follows a confirmation from both parties in response to the rumors that had circulated the internet space in recent days, following hearsays of an alleged infidelity on the part of the Barcelona star; Gerard Pique.

Pique was alleged to have been caught fooling around with another woman, which prompted the split rumors.

The pair met during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, with Shakira’s performance of the World Cup themed song ‘Waka-Waka’, which made waves at that point in time.

The budding romance led to the birth of their 2 kids, although the union from the words of both parties, never led to an official marriage.

Pique claimed at the time, “I like it how we are right now. We have 2 kids, nine and seven, we work good as a couple. We don’t have the need to be married, it’s fine.”

Shakira was regularly seen attending Barcelona games at Camp Nou and recently spoke well of the team’s performance in the El Clasico that saw Barcelona emerge 4-0 winners against La Liga nemesis, Real Madrid.

The pair confirmed the reports in a statement that read:

“We regret confirming that we’re splitting up. For the welfare of our children, which is our top priority, we ask for respect for our privacy. Thank you for understanding.”
