Global music star Shakira has given us an insight into what she failed relationship with Barcelona star defender Gerard Pique was like, reminiscing on all the sacrifices she made to make their relationship work but all that proving unsuccessful.
The Colombian music star, in her comments, suggested the footballer did not put in enough effort to make their long-term relationship work, mostly putting his football career first before her and their children.
“As a soccer player, he wanted to play football and to win titles, and I had to support him,” Shakira told Elle. “I mean, one of the two of us had to make a sacrifice, right? Either he would stop his contract with Barcelona and move to the U.S. with me, where my career is, or I would have to do that instead.
“One of the two had to make that effort and that sacrifice. And I did it. I put my career in second gear, and I came to Spain to support him so he could play football and win title. And it was a sacrifice of love. Thanks to that, my kids were able to have a present mom, and I have this amazing bond with them that is unbreakable, and that sustains us. You know that is it. That’s all I can say.”
Meanwhile, Gerard Pique threatened to take the media organisations that first reported his failed marriage with Shakira.
Shakira is looking to put her music career back on the road and is set to release her first music album in five years.
