Shakira speaks for the first time about her breakup with Gerard Piqué

Unlike Gerard Piquéwho no longer has any qualms about shouting to the four of them his love for Clara Chia, Shakira She had preferred to remain silent and dedicate herself to taking care of her children and family, particularly her father, who in recent weeks has been in poor health.

However, the Colombian singer chose the magazine “Elle” to give her first interview since announcing the separation with her children’s father last June and shares her feelings about the dark moment she is going through.

“I’ve tried to hide the situation from my kids. I try to do it and protect them, because that’s my number one mission in life. But then they hear things at school from their friends or they come across news online, and it just gets to them.” ” Explains the singer, “Sometimes I feel like this is all a bad dream and that I’m going to wake up at some point. But no, it’s real,” explained Shakira, 45.

Precisely about the legal battle she faces for the custody of both little ones, 9-year-old Milan and 7-year-old Sasha, Shakira says “Regardless of how things turned out, he is the father of my children. I have faith that we will discover what is best for their future, their own dreams in life and what is a fair solution for everyone involved.

The singer of “Hips Don’t Lie” cannot avoid being questioned about her feelings about the relationship that the 35-year-old soccer player has with Clara Chía Marti, a 23-year-old student.

“Everything is so raw and new. I can only say that I put everything I had into this relationship and into my family” relates Shakira, “In 2014 I knew that my career had to take a backseat. I knew I had to put down roots in Barcelona and to be there for my children and for Gerard. As a footballer, he wanted to play football and win titles. I had to support him. I mean, one of us had to make a sacrifice, right?”
