Shakira, 47, first met Piqué, 37, on the set of the music video for her song “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” in 2010.

Three years later, they welcomed their first son, Milan, 11, and gave birth to Sasha, 9, two years later.

The family was based in Barcelona, ​​Spain, where Pique played for the city's soccer team.

Shakira has interned on The Voice in the US on occasion and released an album, El Dorado, in 2017, but has mostly focused on raising her children.

Then in June 2022, she and Piqué announced their separation in a joint statement.

“We regret to confirm our separation,” the former couple said at the time. “We ask for privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our top priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect.”

Page Six later reported that Shakira was “devastated” by Pique's alleged infidelity with his current girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti, who is more than 20 years younger than the “Hips Don't Lie” singer.
