“I’m trying to elaborate on what happened,” Shakira admitted with extreme sincerity: “It’s difficult to talk about it, especially since I’m still going through this phase, but also because they are in the public eye, and our separation is not one of those. Regular. It was tough not only for me but also for my boys. Incredibly difficult”, the singer of “Te felicito” added.

“There is nowhere I can hide from them with my children except in my home. We can’t take a walk in the park like a normal family, get ice cream or do any activity without having the paparazzi chasing us. So it’s difficult “, continued the 45-year-old who, despite the difficulties, decided not to let herself be taken by anger, resentment, or disappointment, calibrating every word towards her ex-partner Gerard Piqué today officially engaged to Clara Chia Marti, that is the woman the Barcelona player was dating when he was still busy with Shakira.
“Sometimes it seems to me that it’s all a bad dream and that at some point I will wake up,” said the pop star who, even today, struggles to believe that it is all true, although the moments of “lucidity” are more and more frequent.
“What is also real is the disappointment in seeing something so sacred and special, as I thought it was the relationship I had with the father of my children, turn into something vulgarized and belittled by the media,” continued the singer with extreme bitterness.
Of “Don’t you worry” (a song that Shakira made with the Black Eyed Peas and David Guetta ) before concluding to add: “And all this while my father is hospitalized in intensive care and I find myself fighting on several fronts. As I said, this is probably the darkest hour of my life.”
