Shakira Ditches Barcelona After Eviction Notice
Shakira has decided to leave Barcelona, Spain after reportedly being served with an eviction notice from the father of her ex-partner, Gerard Piqué.
On Sunday, 2 April, the 46-year-old pop star posted an emotional message to Instagram: “I settled in Barcelona to give my children stability, the same that we are now looking for in another corner of the world; next to family, friends and the sea.”
“Today we begin a new chapter in the search for our happiness,” the singer, whose real name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, added in the post which was translated from Spanish to English.
According to the reports, Joan Piqué – the father of the 36-year-old former athlete who has two children with Ripoll – emailed the “Waka Waka” singer on 13 March to either pay compensation for the home they were living in, or vacate it by 30 April.
The former couple had been together for 11 years, before the relationship ended in June 2022. Many of Ripoll’s fans believe the break up is due to Piqué cheating on the songstress with his now-girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti.
Ripoll and her two sons – 10-year-old Milan and eight-year-old Sasha – are said to have set up their new home in Miami, Florida.
