Colombian singer Shakira has confirmed that she is going through one of the “most difficult and saddest” moments of her life, talking about her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Gerard Pique, a Barcelona player.
In an interview with Spanish magazine El, Shakira stated that Piqué, with whom she has two children, “wanted to play football and win titles” and she should support him.
She added: “He must terminate his contract with Barcelona and move with me to the United States, where my career is, or I must continue to work where he works.”
She noted that one of them would have had to sacrifice, adding, “That’s why I made sacrifices and efforts. I put my career in second place and moved to Spain to support him to play football and win titles. It was an act of love. .”
