It was 2010, and she had just recorded what many consider to be the best official song in any competition: “Waka Waka”, the anthem of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. from the clip of this piece that the Colombian met Gerard Piqué, the one who was going to share her life for more than ten years.
At that time, the Spanish footballer evolved within FC Barcelona and won all the awards. It must be said that the year 2010 was quite successful for the professional athlete. A few weeks after meeting the future mother of his children, the 35-year-old won the FIFA World Cup with Spain.

A reciprocal affection
Indeed, the Colombian singer had to wait until the start of the World Cup for the future father of her children to deign to contact her. Finally, the excuse is found. Knowing that Shakira arrived in South Africa much earlier than the players, in order to sing at the opening ceremony, Gerard Piqué took the liberty of asking her… if the weather was good. Finally, it is through this message that the mother of Sasha and Milan was able to show her affection. In an interview with the Spanish channel TV3, Gerard Piqué had also explained: “In general, when you send such a stupid question, you get a response like: “It’s cold, take a coat.” But she wrote a long paragraph, with details of the temperature changes during the day. I thought to myself, “This is not normal.” Details showed that there was affection. »
Afterwards, the Catalan added: “We started sending messages to each other during the World Cup but the only chance I had to see her was to be in the final because she ensured the show during the closing ceremony. So I told her that if I had to go all the way to the final to see her, I would. »
The couple formalized a few months later
We are in 2011, and since the end of the World Cup, the two lovers have not let go. Freshly separated from their respective partners, they do not yet formalize their relationship. But the celebrity press is on the alert to get the first shot of the couple. In the end, it was the Spanish magazine “Caras” which, in March 2011, made Shakira and Gerard Pique its front page.
A few months after this public formalization, the singer announced that she was pregnant with their first child, in September 2012. On January 22, 2013, little Milan Pique Mebarak was born. Two years later, on January 29, 2015, it was little Sasha Pique Mebarak’s turn to enter the world.
A seamless break
Unfortunately, seven years later, the press panicked. The couple no longer appears together and crazy rumors circulate about the gentleman, in particular on an alleged infidelity on the part of the sportsman. The couple, who seemed so perfect, ended up separating in June 2022, after twelve years of relationship and the birth of their two boys in June 2022. This is through a press release, sent to the Spanish news agency EFE, as the stars announce the news. Their only wish: to protect their sons. “We have signed an agreement which guarantees the well-being of our children and which will be ratified in court, within the framework of a merely formal procedure. “A smooth break, at least initially, allowing the family to avoid scandal.
But everything ends up being known one day, and the press was quick to reveal Gerard Pique’s affair with Clara Chia Marti, a 23-year-old student with whom he formalized in August 2022, two months after separated from Shakira.
According to information from the Telecinco television channel, the 45-year-old singer would have discovered her companion’s infidelity thanks to a few jars of jam. According to her, the level of one of these pots had considerably decreased, and indicated that someone regularly ate breakfast at her house, in her absence. To find out the truth, the interpreter of “Hips Don’t Lie” had ended up hiring a private detective. The investigator had finally confirmed what she feared. In an interview with the magazine “ELLE”, the singer confided: “It’s really difficult to talk about it personally. I stayed quiet and just tried to take it all in […] Our separation is not a normal separation. »
The pot of roses
After the turmoil the couple’s breakup caused, tempers seemed to have calmed down. Until January 6, 2023, when “Page Six” unveiled a video of Gerard Piqué during a Zoom interview, at home. Nothing abnormal… when suddenly, a woman appears on the screen. This is the footballer’s new companion. The problem ? The video does not date from 2022, but from 2021. Which implies that the affair between the ex-professional sportsman and his girlfriend had been going on for a while. “Shakira is devastated to find that this woman felt at home in the house she shared with him and the children,” a source told “Page Six.”
Since then, the ex-lovers have continued to pass the buck. The spades are linked, and neither party seems determined to give reason to the other. The singer is also preparing to release a new revenge song. And the release date was obviously not chosen at random. February 2, the date on which Shakira and Gerard Pique will celebrate their respective birthdays.
