Gerard Pique and Shakira’s breakup was a big-time shock for everyone universally. The most shocking part of it was the fact that Pique actually cheated on the Columbian singer who is considered nothing short of a literal goddess. However, all of Shakira’s fans definitely wanted her to move on from the disloyal Pique. But there were also several people out there who were upset that the couple of almost 12 years had to end in such a sudden and disturbing manner. Their long-drawn custody battle for their two sons, Milan and Sasha, was also an ugly affair. One of the people who were completely against their separation was none other than Pique’s mother, Montserrat Bernabeu.
Pique’s mother was “devastated” by his split from Shakira
According to a report by the Spanish magazine Lecturas, Pique’s mother, Montserrat Bernabeu, is extremely distressed about her son’s split from Shakira. The report suggests that the separation was nothing short of a trauma for her. As per the news article, “She is devastated”.
Bernabeu has always insisted that the former Barcelona player and the Hips Don’t Lie singer should mend their relationship. She is very close to her grandchildren and shares a great bond with them. The outlet reported that she was the primary caretaker of the kids whenever their parents were away for work. The kids would often have their dinner and do homework at their grandmother’s place.
Pique’s mother being spotted with Clara Chia Marti soured her relationship with Shakira
The Spanish outlet further shared various instances that soured the bond between the Te felicito singer and Pique’s mother. According to the magazine, Bernabeu did not approve of a social media post made by the 45-year-old singer, which she saw as pressure on her son.
A second point of contention was Pique’s parents were spotted hanging out at La Cerdanya with him and his new partner, Clara Chia Marti.
It acted as direct proof that they weren’t completely reproachful of his affair with the 23-year-old. Eventually, the network of companies that merged the families was also separated thus symbolically ending the union as well.
The Whenever, Wherever singer also alluded to her relationship with Gerard Pique‘s mother in her song Bizarrap. The lyrics read, “You left me as a neighbor to my mother-in-law”.
