The Whenever, Wherever artist has split from Gerard Pique, 35, as they revealed they went their separate ways last week.

The former couple – who are parents to sons Milan, nine, and Sasha, seven – released a joint statement in which they said: “We regret to confirm that we are separating.”

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

The Grammy winner and the athlete went public as a couple in 2011.

The announcement comes amid rumors in Spanish tabloids that the couple were set to split with sources claiming they cheated on the star.

Spanish outlet El Periodico reported that the couple had been living apart for a few weeks after Pique was kicked out of the family home by the pop star.

According to sources, Pique has since been leading a ‘party lifestyle’ in a bachelor pad and enjoying nights out with his teammates.

Neither party has responded to the cheating allegations, but journalist Emilio Pérez reported: ‘(Shakira) has made the decision to part ways. It’s like that. It happened.

That is why there is distance. Maybe there’s nothing left, but that (the infidelity) is over.

Representatives did not respond when contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The former power couple were hit by split claims in 2017, claiming the two no longer lived together and that Shakira caused the split.

It followed weeks of speculation about the status of the couple’s relationship in the Colombian press, with a source saying she “couldn’t deal with the situation any longer”.

“It’s something serious and she was the one who finally made the decision,” they told the Spanish website Cotilleo.

Singer She Wolf alluded to the lack of harmony between the two 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 did not listen; I realized that yours is wrong…

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

The pair had been together since 2011, with the pair meeting while filming the music video for their World Cup song Waka Waka the previous year.

Pique’s team won the World Cup that year, where his future girlfriend performed in the final game.

Although the two corresponded in 2010, the relationship between the two mega-stars wouldn’t officially take off until early 2011.

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

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

The couple have publicly admitted that they have no plans to get married, but that hasn’t stopped them from having a family life.

Speaking to Gary Neville on a recent episode of The Overlap, the Spain international explained he didn’t propose because their relationship “works fine the way it is”.

‘I like how we are right now. We have two children aged nine and seven, we work well as a couple. We don’t need to be married, it’s okay,” Pique said.

After Gerard made his 600th appearance for Barcelona in March, Shakira marked the landmark with a heartfelt message on social media.

Back in March, the FC Barcelona defender risked his partner’s wrath by claiming playing against Espanyol was better than sex.

He said on The Wild Project with YouTuber Jordi Wild: “I’m happy that Espanyol have been promoted to the first division because that’s how we play at their stadium.”

“I love going there, I get whistled all the time. You laugh and the fans get 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 previously praised her boyfriend for his parenting style, saying he was her “biggest support” when it came to raising their children.

She said: “He is down to earth and very hands on when it comes to problem solving. When I’m stressed about how to organize things or juggle everything, he helps put it all in perspective.

“And he’s my biggest support. We’re both very active parents, so it never feels like you’re carrying all the load on your own. He probably leaves them a little more chocolate than I do. would like, however.
