The Whenever, Wherever artist has split from Gerard Piqué, 35, as they announced they split last week.

The former couple, who are parents to sons Milan, 9, and Sasha, 7, released a joint statement, saying: “We regret to confirm that we are separating.

“We ask for privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect.’

The Grammy winner and the athlete first appeared in public as a couple in 2011.

The announcement comes amid rumors in the Spanish tabloid that the couple were close to splitting, as sources claimed he cheated on the star.

Spanish outlet El Periodico reported that the couple have been separated for a few weeks after Piqué was kicked out of the family home by the pop star.

According to sources, Piqué has since been living a “party lifestyle” in a bachelor pad and enjoying the evenings with his teammates.

Neither party has addressed allegations of fraud, but journalist Emilio Pérez reported: “[Shakira]has made the decision to part ways. That’s so. It happened.

“That is why there is distance. There may be nothing left, but this (infidelity) is over.’

The representatives did not respond when contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The former power couple was hit with breakup claims in 2017, with claims the two were no longer living together and Shakira instigated the breakup.

Weeks of speculation about the couple’s relationship status in the Colombian press followed, with a source claiming she “can’t handle the situation anymore”.

“It’s something serious and she was the one who ultimately made the decision,” they told Spanish website Cotilleo.

The She Wolf singer hinted in her latest hit, Te Felicito with Rauw Alejandro, in which she sings, ‘To make you complete I broke into pieces; I was warned but I didn’t listen; I found yours wrong…

“It was the drop that broke the glass; Don’t tell me you’re sorry, that sounds sincere, but I know you well and I know you’re lying.”

The couple have been together since 2011, although the couple met while filming the music video for their World Cup song Waka Waka the previous year.

Piqué’s team happened to win the World Cup that year, where his future girlfriend made an appearance during the final game.

Although the two corresponded in 2010, the relationship between the two megastars would not officially begin until early 2011.

In the fall of 2012, Shakira took to her Instagram platform to announce to fans that she was pregnant with the soccer star’s son.

Just two years after the birth of son Milan, the couple announced they were expecting their second child, Sasha, who was born in 2015.

The couple have publicly admitted they have no marriage plans, but that hasn’t stopped them from pursuing family life.

Speaking to Gary Neville on a recent episode of The Overlap, the Spain international explained he didn’t propose because their relationship “is working well the way it is”.

“I like how we are right now. We have two children, nine and seven, we work well as a couple. We don’t have to be married, it’s fine,” Piqué said.

After Gerard made his 600th appearance for Barcelona in March, Shakira marked the milestone with a heartfelt post on social media.

Back in March, the Barcelona FC defender risked the wrath of his partner by claiming that playing against Espanyol was better than sex.

He said of The Wild Project with YouTuber Jordi Wild: “I’m happy that Espanyol has been promoted to the first division because that’s how we play in their stadium.

“I like going there, I get whistled at all the time. You laugh and the fans get even madder.

“There is nothing else in the world that can compare. I would say it’s better than sex. I enjoy it a lot more than playing against Real Madrid.”

The Hips Don’t Lie singer previously praised her boyfriend for his parenting style and claimed he is her “biggest support” when it comes to raising her children.

She said: “He’s down to earth and very hands-on with problem-solving. When I’m stressed out about how to organize things or juggle everything, he helps put everything in perspective.

“And he’s my biggest support. We’re both very dedicated parents, so it never feels like we’re carrying all the burden alone. He probably gives them a little more chocolate than I want though.”
