Shakira’s 91-year-old father is back in the hospital again. Local media reported that William Mebarak, 91, was hospitalized over the weekend at the Teknon clinic in Barcelona, and the whole family of the Columbian singer is watching his health. Among those people who have not stopped asking questions and are concerned about Mebarak’s health, one of them is none other than Shakira’s ex-partner Gerard Pique.
Reportedly, the Waka Waka hitmaker’s former partner Gerard Pique is still in contact with her family as the footballer has been frequently visiting her father at the hospital. As per Marca, when Nidia del Carmen Ripoll, the Columbian singer’s mother, was questioned about the Barcelona player’s visits and if she still considers him a part of her family, Ripoll said yes, confirming that Pique is still a part of the family.

He was discharged days later, and with much love and affection, Shakira took him home to receive the necessary care.

Things are not getting easier for Shakira
Although Shakira’s attention is completely focused on her family, for now, the 45-year-old singer’s career is spiking high. A few weeks ago, she released the highly anticipated new single, Monotonía, featuring Ozuna. The song came with an incredible music video, shedding light on her breakup with Gerard Piqué.
The split from the Barcelona player is a big shock for the Columbian singer. Especially since he is already in a new relationship with Clara Chia Marti, the 23-year-old young PR student with whom he was allegedly unfaithful. On top of that, Shakira is facing legal troubles with accusations of tax evasion in Spain, which could lead her to spend at least eight years in prison, if things don’t work out in her favor.
