According to El Periodico, Gerard Pique and Shakira are on the verge of breaking up. Pique was allegedly caught having an affair and is now living in an apartment in Barcelona with his teammate Riqui Puig and enjoying the city’s nightlife. Given how fondly most Barcelona fans regard Pique’s relationship with Shakira, the news comes as a shock to many.
She posted a touching message on Instagram after La Blaugrana defeated Real Madrid 4-0, expressing her pride in the center-back. Shakira, a Colombian pop star who is well-known around the world, started dating Pique in 2011 and the couple has two children together. Pique, 35, is one of Barcelona’s most senior figures.
With Barcelona and the Spanish national team, the Catalan has won everything there is to win. He is still a starter for Barcelona and will play a key role in the coming season. This season, Barcelona finished 13 points behind Real Madrid.
