For a few days, the Spanish press has been speculating whether Shakira and Gerard Piqué’s marriage is facing serious problems. The singer is said to have caught him cheating and then suffered a nervous breakdown. Now they announced the separation.

The world-famous singer and the soccer player have been a couple since 2011. They had two children together in the eleven years of their relationship, sons Milan and Sasha, now nine and seven years old. So far there have been no scandals, they were considered the dream couple in the entertainment industry. But now she is said to have caught him cheating. According to the Spanish media, there is even talk of a transfer in flagranti. Apparently too much for the 45-year-old, who was hospitalized last week after returning from the Cannes Film Festival. Just a week later, the celebrity couple confirmed the end of their relationship.

Separation official: Piqué has already flown out at Shakira

In an official statement, the singer announced the separation from her husband: “We regret to inform you that we have separated. For the sake of our children, who are our top priority, we ask that our privacy be respected. Thank you very much for your understanding”, reads a short statement, which, according to the magazine “El Periódico”, was published by the communication agency of the artist.

For weeks, people in Barcelona, ​​where Shakira and Piqué live, are said to have noticed that the soccer star is supposed to be living in his old apartment on Calle Muntaner again. In addition, the 35-year-old was often spotted in clubs and bars with female companions who were not his wife. This is what “El Periódico” reports. The infidelity of the soccer player is said to be to blame for the relationship. The suspicion hardened because the singer had deleted many photos together with her husband on Instagram.

“iHola!”, another Spanish medium, only now added further details. The singer is said to have suffered a nervous breakdown on the street a week ago. Shakira cried loudly in front of her house until an ambulance had to appear to take the singer to a nearby hospital. The newspaper refers to eyewitness reports, but Piqué is said to have observed what was happening and then followed her to the hospital in his car. Her mother Nidia del Carmen Ripoll is also said to have come to the clinic immediately. What could be the background of this nervous breakdown has so far remained open, but the cheating rumors about the 35-year-old, which came up a little later, are obvious as the cause.
