Shakira‘s latest statements about her divorce from Barcelona defender Gerard Pique have clearly unsettled the Spaniard as he has spoken out regarding the situation.
Although neither of them wanted to give visibility to their internal and family problems, the opposite is happening and the delicate situation between the player and the singer is becoming more and more exposed to the public.
In the “darkest moment of her life” Shakira has given an exclusive interview to ELLE magazine in which she has talked about how she is dealing with her controversial separation from Pique.
According to La Vanguardia, her interview has not gone down well with the footballer, who is upset with his ex-partner.
Throughout the interview, in addition to discussing issues about their children, Shakira gives a special mention to the harassment of the press in Barcelona, influencing her desire to move to Miami.
Pique considers that such claims are revenge and believes that Shakira is playing the role of a victim.
“I can only say that I put everything I had into this relationship and into my family,” she told ELLE.
“Gerard, as a footballer, wanted to play football and win titles, and I had to support him.
“I put my career on the back burner and came to Spain, so that he could play football and win titles. And it was an act of love.
“Thanks to that, my children were able to have a mother present, and I have this incredible bond with them that is unbreakable and that sustains us.”
Shakira playing the victim
Pique is annoyed by the statements and believes that she has the intention of victimising the situation.
“Everyone who knows him knows that even if he has gone out for a few nights out drinking, he has always combined that with his business, but also with taking care of his family,” she said.
“He takes his children to school, to extracurricular activities, on trips and spends all the time with them when he is not working,” say those close to him.
The footballer is said to be furious that the Colombian defines herself as the one who takes time from her career to take care of her children with the intention of “being an example” for them.
