Shakira broke the silence after three and a half months on mute after the scandalous separation of Gerard Piquéwith whom she was united for 12 years and had two children: Milan and Shasha.
“It’s hard to talk about it, especially because I’m still going through it and because I’m in the public eye. Y because our separation is not like a normal separation. So it has been difficult not only for me, but also for my children. incredibly difficult”, he stressed in an interview with the magazine she.

The goalkeeper’s request to the singer comes to her just now that she does not have a partner when she has known her forever”, risked the cheerleader of socialite, as giving chances to a possible rapprochement between them. For now it has not gone beyond that, although the slightest possibility of an attempt by Casillas generated controversy.
