Pique cheated, betrayed me while my father was dying – Shakira reveals

Colombian pop sensation, Shakira has lamented how she was betrayed by former Barcelona stalwart, Gerard Pique.

Shakira and Pique’s love life was envied by many and was cited as an example of a celebrity relationship that works.

They may no longer be together, but that does not change the fact that fans shipped them for more than a decade.

The former couple were an item for 12 years, during which time they had two sons together. In June 2022, however, the pair announced that they had called it quits

The songstress has now unraveled the details of the former Spain international’s betrayal, which led to a highly-publicized separation of the duo.

In an interview with People en Espanol magazine, Shakira revealed the harrowing moment when she discovered Pique was cheating on her.

“Everything came together, my home was falling apart. I found out from the press that I had been betrayed while my dad was in the intensive care unit.

“I thought I wouldn’t survive that long. The man I have loved the most in my life, my father, was leaving me when I needed him most, but I could not talk to him or receive the advice from my best friend that I would have needed so much,” she revealed.

However, Shakira’s 91-year-old father managed to pull through his intensive care stay.
