The Barcelona centre-back has been with the Colombian singer for 11 years, with the couple having had two children together.

“We regret to confirm that we are parting ways,” the joint statement, released via the EFE agency, read.

“For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect their privacy. 

“Thanks for your understanding.”

Spanish daily newspaper El Periodico has published allegations made by video podcast Mamarazzis that claim that Pique “has been seen accompanied by other women” and that he has “been living alone for weeks in his old apartment”.

According to El Periodico, the 35-year-old Barcelona star has been meeting with a 22-year-old blonde female. She is a student and an event hostess in Barcelona.

El Periodico further revealed that, Pique was seen with the unnamed woman multiple times, and Shakira found out.

Pique is also said to be living in a separate apartment away from his family home, where 45-year-old Shakira, and their two children, Milan and Sasha, are.

El Periodico also reports that Pique and Shakira had already been separated for three months prior to the news of their split.

In the month of May, Shakira traveled to Ibiza twice, with their children, Milan and Sasha, and a friend, but without Pique who at the time, was injured and unavailable for his club Barcelona.

In their statement, the couple neither confirmed nor denied this existence of the 22-year-old.

In 2010, the two met while filming the music video for the Colombian singer’s World Cup hit single “Waka Waka.”
