Shakira And Her Beloved Gerard Piqué Walked Their Separate Ways!
In 2014, to Latina magazine, Shakira said, "Gerard is with me because he wants to be with Shakira the person, not the celebrity. There's real love, there's no ulterior motives. And I'm with him because he's the most amazing man I've ever met. We want the same things, we like the same things, we hate the same things. I have never been with someone so passionate in my life."
After Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira was asked why the duo did not walk down the aisle, she replied, "telling the truth, marriage scares the shit out of me. I don't want him to see me as his wife. I'd rather him see me as his girlfriend. His lover, his girlfriend. It's like a little forbidden fruit, you know? I want to keep him on his toes. I want him to think that anything's possible depending on behaviour."

At the time of dating, however, their relationship was out on social media; they kept it relatively private. But, they couldn't resist sharing some snaps via social media. In addition, the couple used to make the occasional red carpet appearance. Also, according to Harpers Bazaar, Shakira would bring their kids to support the footballer at his games. Gerard was there for the singer's 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance with Jennifer Lopez.
The main reason for 2015's most powerful celebrity couple's split is likely infidelity. Earlier in June, there were rumors that the Colombian singer caught her beau with another woman.
