Colombian popstar Shakira has allegedly gone ahead and taken advantage of the children’s custody battle that she won against Gerard Pique. The fact that Pique does not live with the children has helped her do something without his knowledge. Apparently, Pique did not know that his sons will be appearing in Shakira’s latest music video.
Shakira released her song “Acrostico” and it was noticed that she was accompanied by her children Milan and Sasha. The video clip was apparently made while they lived in their house in Barcelona. The kids are seen accompanying their mother while singing and even playing the piano. The kids’ performance has been praised and the song has received good reviews. However, Pique is not happy that this happened without his knowledge.
According to MARCA, Shakira explained that the kids wanted to join in when they heard the song that was dedicated to them. However, it is reported that Pique might resort to legal action.
MARCA states that journalist Lorena Vazquez made the revelation in “Y ahora Sonsoles”. She said that Pique got to know about his kids’ appearance only after the release of the song. “He did not know, nor has he been asked for permission, nor authorization and it seems that neither his children had told him,” Vazquez detailed.
For her part, Marisa Martin Blazquez said, “He is in shock. He has spoken to his lawyer to see what can be done about it.”

This is another new development in the never-ending feud between the ex-partners. Since their breakup in June 2022, the ex-couple has been after each other’s throats. On the other hand, this is not the first time in their history that such a decision has been taken by one of the partners.
Shakira was furious with Gerard Pique when Milan appeared in a Twitch stream with him
On January 7, 2023, a Twitch event took place that was organized by Pique’s company. The event starred many streamers and former players including Pique. The surprise attendee of the event was Milan, Pique and Shakira’s first-born son. However, Shakira was reported to be furious with the former FC Barcelona star for having Milan at the event.
According to Hola!, a communication office statement read, “Sources from Shakira’s environment assure that the singer in no case gave her prior consent nor was she consulted about the participation of her son Milan in the broadcast of an event by Gerard Piqué‘s company, in a discussion of adult content.”
On the stream, Pique declared, “This is my son. He is not the announcement, my son is not what we need to announce. We have him here because he wanted to be part at the last minute.”

Milan seemed to enjoy the interaction while he was on stream. No legal action was pursued by Shakira for Pique’s action at the time. It will be interesting to see how Pique sees it as the tables have turned now.
