The loud parting of Shakira and Gerard Pique is overgrown with new details. The Barcelona defender agreed that his former life partner moved their common children to the United States, but put forward two conditions. According to the sports newspaper Marca, the football player demands that Shakira pay off his debt of 400 thousand euros and annually pay for five flights from Spain to the United States and back in first class so that he can see his sons Milan and Sasha.
The singer and footballer have been dating since 2011. They met in the spring of 2010 when Piqué appeared in the music video for Waka Waka, the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. At the beginning of their romance, many did not believe that the couple, whose age difference is 10 years, would last together for so long and even give birth to two children. And yet, they lived together for eight years.
The couple announced their separation last month. They say that the main reason for the gap was the betrayal of a football player. One of the main stumbling blocks was child custody. Since Shakira lived in Spain only because of Piqué, after parting with him, she decided to take her sons to the USA. But the athlete spoke out sharply against it. Due to a busy schedule, he cannot afford frequent overseas flights.

This is not the only problem in the life of the singer. Recently, the Spanish prosecutor’s office demanded eight years and two months in prison for Shakira in a tax fraud case. The Colombian star was accused of hiding from Spain a significant part of her income from 2012 to 2014, which she allegedly took offshore in the Cayman and Virgin Islands. Thus, the aristo owed the Spanish treasury 14.5 million euros in unpaid taxes.
Before Gerard Piqué, Shakira was engaged to the son of former Argentine President Antonio de la Rua. Antonio even starred in her video “Underneath Your Clothes”, which caused outrage among the Argentines. Their relationship lasted 11 years, after which they broke up. After that, Antonio sued the ex-fiancee: he demanded 100 thousand dollars for being the singer’s manager for a long time.
