Focusing On Healing

Early this month, the singer seemed to allude to Pique’s betrayal when she posted an inspiring New Year’s message on Instagram. It said in part, “Even if our wounds are still open in this new year, time has a surgeon’s hands. Even if someone’s betrayed us, we must continue to trust others.”
