The 46-year-old singer dated the Puerto Rican star Osvaldo Rios in 1997. At the time, the then-couple garnered major public attention due to their massive age difference. She was around 20 years old while the TV star was 17 years older than her as he was 37 at the time. The duo dated each other for reportedly 8 months.
While not many details were ever revealed about their relationship, the musician did open up about why they split.
“She was just starting with ‘Pies descalzos’ and she had a whole world to live in.”
He continued to share that letting go was the best decision as she had to grow and reach immense heights.
“When you love someone, it’s better to set them free and it’s the best proof of love you can give them. She had to fly, it was the best thing that happened to her, but she had to do it without me.”
Ever since Shakira released Pies Descalzos back in 1995, she gained much fame and leveled herself to a greater extent. She continued to work hard and established herself as one of the most talented artists of the 21st century. While her former beau wished nothing but happiness and success for the artist, he gave an insight onto their relationship.
