The Colombian singer Shakira and her former partner Gerard Pique, a professional football player, have set aside their differences to come together and celebrate the tenth birthday of their eldest son, Milan. Shakira hosted the party at her residence, inviting close friends and family members to partake in the celebratory occasion.
The birthday boy was seen arriving at the event in a car, accompanied by his brother Sasha and their father, Pique. The family reportedly spent the entire weekend together, despite the construction of a dividing wall between the properties of Shakira and Pique's parents, who are neighbors.
The football player was later seen leaving the party in his car, with one of his sons in the passenger seat.
He appeared to be in good spirits, smiling as he drove away. Recent financial reports have shed light on Shakira's successful career post-split. Spanish TV show ‘El Programa de Ana Rosa’ announced that, "In these four days, Shakira has made more than 2,500,000 dollars with ‘BZRP Music Sessions #53’," and her recent song ‘Te felicito’, released in April 2022, has more than 445,000 million streams, generating about 10 million dollars, reports Indianexpress.
Shakira's new song,
in which she sings about how she is too good for her ex-partner, soccer player Gerard Pique, has garnered over 35 million views in just 18 hours.
"I wish you good luck with my supposed replacement / I don't even know what happened to you," she sings. "You are so strange that I can't even distinguish you / I'm worth two of 22 [year old] / You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo / You traded a Rolex for a Casio.", Shakira sings in the new song.
Elsewhere, the performer adds, "She has the name of a good person/ It's clearly not what it sounds like / She has the name of a good person / She's clearly the same as you / For guys like you / I'm too good for you and that's why you're with someone just like you." However, they also reacted to this verse on the official Twitter profile of one of the world's largest watch manufacturers.
"Today we have quite a few notifications for a mention of CASIO in a song ? CASIO (watches and keyboards) and (calculators) are from and for life ?," they cleverly tweeted. Shakira and Gerard announced their separation in June 2022, after 11 years of being in a relationship.
The couple has two sons, Milan and Sasha. Since the breakup, Gerard has been spotted publicly with his new partner Clara Chia Marta, and has not been shy about his new relationship.
