MailOnline contacted representatives of Shakira and Gerard for comment.

Shakira’s statement read: “We are sorry to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, which is our highest priority, we ask that you respect their privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”

According to sources, Pique has since lived a “festive lifestyle” in a single pillow and enjoyed nights out with his teammates.

No party has dealt with deceptive claims but journalist Emilio Pérez reported: ‘(Shakira) made the decision to split up. That’s right. It happened.

‘That’s why it’s a distance. There may be nothing left, but that (infidelity) has passed. ‘

Representatives did not respond when contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The former power couple was hit by split claims in 2017, where it was claimed that the two were no longer living together and Shakira encouraged the separation.

It followed weeks of speculation about the couple’s relationship status in the Colombian press, with a source claiming she “could no longer stand the situation”.

‘It’s something serious and she was the one who finally made the decision,’ they told a Spanish website Gossip.

The She Wolf singer hinted at a mismatch between the couple in her latest hit Te Felicito with Rauw Alejandro, in which she sings: “To complete you I broke into pieces; I was warned, but I didn’t listen; I understood that yours is false …

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

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

Piqué’s team accidentally won the World Cup that year, where his soon-to-be girlfriend performed during the final game.

Although the two met in 2010, the relationship between the two megastars would not officially end until early 2011.

In the fall of 2012, Shakira would use her Instagram platform to announce to fans that she was pregnant with the football star’s son.

Just two years after the birth of son Milan, the couple entered the second round and revealed that they will be expecting their second child, Sasha, who was born in 2015.

The couple publicly admitted that they did not plan to get married, but that did not stop them from having a family life.

Talking to Gary Neville in a recent episode of The Overlapthe Spanish international explained that he did not propose because their relationship ‘works well as it is.’

– I like how we are now. We have two children, nine and seven, we work well as a couple. We don’t need to get married, that’s fine, ‘said Pike.

After Gerard made her 600th appearance for Barcelona in March, Shakira marked the milestone with a heartfelt post on social media.

In March, the Barcelona FC defender risked his partner’s anger by claiming that playing against Espanyol is better than sex.

He continued The Wild Project with YouTuber Jordi Wild: ‘I’m glad Espanyol was promoted to the first division because that’s how we play in their stadium.

– I like going there, I’m always whistling. You laugh and the fans go even crazier.

‘There is nothing comparable in the world. I would say it’s better than sex. I enjoy it much more than playing against Real Madrid. ‘

The Hips Don’t Lie singer has previously praised her boyfriend for his parenting style, claiming he is her “biggest support” when it comes to educating her children.

She said: ‘He has his feet on the ground and is very practical about problem solving. When I stress about how to organize things or juggle everything, it helps to put everything in perspective.

‘And he is my greatest support. We’re both very practical parents, so you never feel like you’re carrying the whole burden on your own. He’ll probably let them have some more chocolate than I’d like. ‘
