Following their split in June this year, Shakira and Gerard Piqué were spotted at a sporting event for their son Milan’s baseball game recently. The former couple’s 12-year relationship came to an end on grounds of Piqué’s infidelity. It was reported that months before the separation, the football player had been getting close to the 23-year-old Clara Chia Marti. According to an insider source, the Hips Don’t Lie singer admitted she was over it way before the actual split.
Shakira also shared that she did not mind as much as her children were her top priority. However, she felt the media’s perception of their split was affecting her and her children negatively. And now recently the ex-couple had to encounter each other once again as their son Milan was having a baseball game in Barcelona. The two kept a cool and friendly distance throughout the game.

Shakira and Gerard Piqué Relationship and Separation
The pair met for a time during the shooting for the Waka Waka music video back in 2011. Their relationship lasted for over a decade and they share two sons Milan (9) and Sasha (7). After allegations of infidelity from Gerard Piqué started to come up, Shakira decided to call it quits and they separated in June this year. Although their relationship was decade-long, the pair never actually married. They just moved in together and decided to have children. Following the split, they released a joint statement,
“We regret to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect our privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”
The reason behind the decision to separate had been the brewing romance between the footballer and a 23-year-old student Clara Chia Marti while he was in a relationship with Shakira. At the time The Sun reported that the Spanish Centre-back was with Marti “for the past few months”. However, an insider source also revealed at the time that the Loca singer did not mind it as she had been over the relationship way before their split in June. Shakira and Piqué signed custody of their two sons earlier this month.
