There’s rarely a person who is interested in music and hasn’t heard of Shakira. Her song Hips Don’t Lie took over the world like a forest fire, and no one has quite stopped dancing to those tunes. 

However, recently, Shakira was making headlines not because of her song but because of her ex-husband and their divorce row. 

But, things could be looking brighter for her love life now.. or is it another rumor?

Has Shakira Found New Love? 

Recently, the single was spotted with Gorka Ezkurdia, her 24-year-old surfing instructor. The duo has been snapped together multiple times, and some are saying sparks were flying. 

Of course, it’s possible that the two of them are great friends, and Shakira definitely needs a friendly shoulder during this phase of her life. 

On the other hand, if they are starting to form an affection for one another, and perhaps a relationship... It's great that she’s moving on and leaving the bitter divorce behind.

Why Did Shakira And Gerard Pique Divorce?

The pop singer met the Spain and Barcelona defender at her official World Cup song set. They spent 11 years of their lives together before splitting. 

Reportedly, Shakira divorced Gerard Pique after news of him cheating on her emerged. However, that wasn't the only factor why she decided to split from her ex-husband. 

Apparently, she had to slow down her career and make sacrifices for her children, but the father of her children did not wish to do the same. In fact, when her older son, Milan, started school, she had to truly put the brakes on her career. 

She opened up about the situation during an exclusive interview with Elle.

“I put my career in second gear and I came to Spain, to support him so he could play football and win titles. And it was a sacrifice of love. Thanks to that, my kids were able to have a present mom, and I have this amazing bond with them that is unbreakable and that sustains us. You know, that is it. That’s all I can say.”

Gerard Pique Has Already Moved On From The Divorce

While Shakira’s rumored relationship is just surfacing, ever since their shocking divorce announcement, the footballer has already moved on.

Even while their divorce settlement was being finalized about the children’s custody, Gerard Pique had already moved and is currently residing in a penthouse with his current girlfriend, Clara Chia.
