The artist, The Whenever, Wherever The artist broke up with Gerard Pique, 35, when it was revealed that they had split last week.

The former couple – who are parents to sons Milan, nine, and Sasha, seven – released a joint statement saying: ‘We are sorry to confirm that we are separated.

We demand privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our top priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect.

The Grammy Award winner and athlete publicly appeared as a married couple in 2011.

The announcement comes amid rumors in Spanish newspapers that the couple were on the verge of breaking up with sources claiming that he cheated on the star.

Spanish website El Periodico reports that the couple have been living apart for a few weeks after pop star Pique was evicted from the family home.

According to sources, Piqué has since been living a “party lifestyle” in the bachelor pad and enjoys nights out with his teammates.

Neither party has addressed the allegations of cheating but journalist Emilio Perez said: ‘(Shakira) has made the decision to separate. This is the situation. It happened.

This is why there is a space. Perhaps nothing remains except that (disbelief) has passed.

Representatives did not respond when contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The former powerhouse couple came under separate claims in 2017, with the two allegedly no longer living together and Shakira instigating the split.

It came after weeks of speculation about the state of the couple’s relationship in the Colombian press, with a source claiming she “can no longer handle the situation”.

“It’s a serious thing and she was the one who finally made the decision,” they told Spain’s Cotilleo.

The She Wolf singer alluded to the disharmony between the duo in her latest single that Te Felicito performed with Rauw Alejandro, in which she sang: ‘To complete you, you broke pieces; I was warned, but did not listen; I realized you made a mistake…

It was the drop that overflowed the glass; Don’t tell me you’re sorry, that sounds honest, but I know you well and I know you’re lying.

The pair have been together since 2011, having met while filming the music video for the World Cup song Waka Waka the previous year.

It so happened that Pique’s team won the World Cup that year, as his soon-to-be girlfriend performed during the final.

Although the two matched in 2010, the relationship between the two giant stars wouldn’t officially take off until the beginning of 2011.

In the fall of 2012, Shakira used her Instagram platform to announce to fans that she was pregnant with the son of a football star.

Just two years after giving birth to son Milan, the couple revealed that they are expecting their second child, Sasha, who was born in 2015.

The spouses openly admitted that they had no plans to marry, but this did not prevent them from enjoying a family life.

Speaking to Gary Neville on a recent episode of The Overlap, the Spain international made it clear that he didn’t propose to him because their relationship “is going well as it is.”

‘I like how we are now.’ We have two children, nine and seven, who do well as a married couple. “No need to get married, that’s fine,” said Pique.

After Gerrard debuted his 600th with Barcelona in March, Shakira set a milestone with an honest post on social media.

Back in March, the Barcelona defender risked angering his partner by claiming that playing against Espanyol was better than sex.

He said on The Wild Project with YouTuber Jordi Wild: “I am happy that Espanyol have been promoted to the First Division because that is how we play in their stadium.

I like to go there, I get a whistle all the time. You’re laughing and the fans are getting crazier.

There is nothing in the world to compare. I would say it’s better than sex. I enjoy it a lot more than playing against Real Madrid.

The Hips Don’t Lie singer previously praised her boyfriend for his parenting style, claiming he’s her “biggest support” when it comes to raising their kids.

She said: ‘He’s got his feet on the ground and he’s very practical at solving problems. When I get nervous about how to organize things or juggle everything, it helps to put everything in order.

He is my biggest support. We are both very practical parents, so it never seems like one of them carries the entire burden alone. Maybe they’re allowed to eat more chocolate than I’d like, though.
