Where have Shakira and Gerard Piqué been lately? It seems like they haven’t been with each other. According to the Spanish website Cotilleo, the couple has broken up.
The rumors were floating around the last week, but let’s take a look at the evidence: social media. Fans have to go back to a July 1 post to find a photo of the singer and Piqué together.

In the photo, the couple are smiling at the camera and dressed up in their formal-wear best. There is no sign of tension in their body language. So, what could have happened in the last three months?
Cotilleo is reporting that Shakira ended the relationship and has moved out of their Barcelona, Spain, home. There are a lot of questions to be answered because the couple have two children, Milan, 4, and Sasha, 2.
If a breakup did occur, this happens at a very big time in both of their careers. Shakira is headed out on a four-month tour, and Piqué is focused on vying for the 2018 World Cup with his soccer team.
Shakira and Piqué were never married, but there is a 10-year gap between their ages. While this certainly isn’t a recipe for disaster in any relationship, the two could be different paths in their lives right now.
The couple have yet to confirm any breakup news, and their social media accounts continue to be upbeat and positive. She’s sharing her music, and he’s been posting photos of his life on the soccer field.
Since Shakira and Piqué are currently keeping mum on the split, they might be taking some time off to think, or they might be trying to reconcile behind the scenes. With two big careers and a young family, Shakira and Piqué are wisely keeping this private — for now.
