According to various reports from Spanish and Colombian media, Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique(30) and Colombian pop singer, Shakira(40) have ended their seven-year relationship.
Sources claim the relationship had been going through a rough patch for months and Shakira recently moved out of their home in Barcelona. Neither Pique nor Shakira have confirmed the widespread reports.
The footballer and pop star were last seen together in public at Lionel Messi’s wedding to childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo in Argentina on the 30th of June.
The couple met during the video filming of Shakira’s single “Waka Waka” (This Time for Africa), the theme song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and have two children, Milan(4) and Sasha(2).
It has been a difficult week for Pique. The Barcelona defender was booed by fans of the Spanish national team on Monday for supporting Catalonia’s wish to secede from the rest of Spain.
