Shakira and Gerard Piqué were the other big celebrity split this weekend – but probably not as surprising as MBJ and Lori Harvey. For a while now there have been rumours about the status of Shaki’s relationship with her one-time “Sunshine”, her nickname for him from when they first starting dating in 2010.
Gerard has been seen at his bachelor pad the last couple of weeks. Then on Saturday a joint statement was released via her management that made it official:
“We regret to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect our privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”
Spanish entertainment outlets are now reporting that it was because Shaki caught Gerard cheating and that his partying is “somewhat out of control”. If her new single, “Te Felicito”, with Rauw Alejandro is any indication, well, she’s had it for a while now.
“Don't tell me you're sorry
But I know you well and I know you lie”
The whole song is basically a f-ck you to someone who is not worth her time – seems to be exactly on theme for what’s going on in her personal life.
Apparently the two have already started the process of formalising their separation and that they may be heading towards a custody dispute. Word is Shakira wants to relocate to another country and away from Barcelona where the family has been living up until recently. However they were both in the Czech Republic yesterday for their son’s baseball tournament.

As you can see, Shaki does not seem bothered:

Shaki, like Lori Harvey, appears to be ready for summer too.

I don’t know how realistic that is but speaking of Chris Evans, he presented at the MTV Awards last night to promote Lightyear. I’m guessing from his IG story that it was a debate with his stylist, Ilaria Urbinati, about his hat. The hat works!
