Gerard Piqué, 35-year-old Spanish soccer participant, has hard-launched Clara Chia Marti, his 23-year-old girlfriend. He posted a selfie of the couple on Instagram, and didn’t flip off the remark operate.
That is notable as a result of former companions Piqué and Shakira have been going tit for tat in a breakup narrative with a protracted tail.
They introduced in a joint assertion in June that they have been separating, ending a roughly 12-year relationship. It was a fair type of assertion—all very “respect our privateness” and “for the well-being of our youngsters.” It betrayed nothing about what was going on behind the scenes; it’s all gone a bit sideways since then.
Now, greater than half a yr later, the beats of the breakup story hold coming: There’s Shakira’s ongoing tax evasion case in Spain (she denies the accusations); the grand reveal of the aforementioned 23-year-old girlfriend; an alleged video of mentioned new girlfriend within the household house throughout one in all Piqué’s Zoom interviews earlier than Piqué and Shakira introduced their break up; and a foodstuffs story line, which each good breakup story is required to have ever for the reason that Wilde-Sudeikis alleged salad dressing breakup of ’22. Shakira’s apparently would possibly contain jam. The performer allegedly knew one thing was up, the unverified rumor goes, when she found somebody had eaten the jam in her fridge. Jam that her accomplice on the time didn’t like.
And, clearly, this story of woe features a revealing breakup anthem, launched January 11. “You left me together with your mother as a neighbor / The press at my door, and a debt with the Treasury / You thought you’d damage me, however you made me stronger / Ladies not cry, ladies receives a commission,” goes her track “BZRP Music Periods, Vol. 53” in English. “You traded in a Ferrari for a Twingo / You traded in a Rolex for a Casio.” (As an obvious response, Piqué drove to work in a Twingo final week.)
As Shakira hints within the track, there’s a mother-in-law issue on this story as properly. I’ve to repeat and paste complete fabric from the Each day Mail’s web site as a result of it’s the plutonic very best of a Each day Mail headline and shouldn’t be summarized, paraphrased, or in any other case altered: “Shakira places up a WITCH doll on her balcony which is claimed to face her former mom in regulation’s house and ‘blasts Gerard Pique’s diss monitor at full quantity’ at her Spanish property.” I really take that again. It could be a super Each day Mail headline if it talked about anybody therein’s legs, whether or not Shakira’s, her former mother-in-law’s, or the witch doll’s.
Anyway, the tune has been well-liked, efficiently climbing the music charts. As they are saying, historical past is written by the victors—i.e., those who can pen successful track.
