The Colombian artist begins a new life in Miami one year after separating from Gerard Piqué and he wanted to lay the foundations of his relationship with the press on the other side of the pond with a statement published on his social networks. In it, he makes clear his discomfort at the media interest that he aroused in Spain: “At this time of changes in my life as a public figure, it is understandable that there is a permanent curiosity on the part of the press around me and my family.

Shakira She was not comfortable with the monitoring of the Spanish press, something that she never hid and that she even used as an argument to justify her move to the United States. “Now that they are starting a new stage in their lives, I strongly ask the media on behalf of my children to please respect their right to privacy. I beg you to refrain from following them to the exit or entrance of the school, waiting for them at the entrance of the our house, or chase them to their extra-curricular and recreational activities, as has happened every day in Barcelona in order to obtain photographic captures or better ratings”, he has written.

Finally, she adds: “I extend this request no longer as an artist, but as a mother who wishes to protect and care for the psychological and emotional well-being of her children so that they can live a healthy and happy life, as every child deserves. Thank you for your understanding and support.”

And the ‘musical trio’?

The separation between Shakira and Gerard Piqué was one of the bombshell news of 2022 and crossed our borders, since not only the Spanish press echoed each family and legal movement but also the newspapers of the United States and the rest of Europe. An interest that the artist herself fueled with the release of her songs, known as the Revenge Trio: I congratulate you, Monotony and Session 53, in which he has broken down every detail of his marital disagreements, mother-in-law included. A master move that has not only kept the spotlight on her and her family, but has brought her more than 30 million euros (and what remains of her).
