Last June, amidst widespread speculation of Gerard Piqué’s rumored unfaithfulness to Shakira, Suzy Cortez, a prominent Brazilian model, came forward with allegations that the athlete had sent her inappropriate messages while still married to his ex-wife. Since then, Pique has faced considerable challenges.
Interestingly, Cortez is also known as an avid devotee of the Argentine soccer phenomenon Messi and has claimed that Piqué exhibited a hint of envy towards her displays of admiration for Messi. The former victor of Brazil’s esteemed Miss BumBum competition has exhibited unwavering support for Messi throughout his journey.
Her unflinching devotion to the seven-time Ballon d’Or recipient is indisputable, evident in the remarkable fact that she has adorned her body with Messi-inspired tattoos on eight occasions.
The most recent addition to her collection showcases Lionel Messi’s distinctive signature, the revered No. 10 emblematic of his national team, and the three stars symbolizing the World Cup conquest achieved by Messi and his compatriots in Qatar the previous year.
Suzy Cortez calls Lionel Messi an outstanding husband
Suzy Cortez, the Brazilian model, revealed that among the members of the Barcelona dressing room, Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho stood out as the only respectable gentlemen. Cortez further disclosed that unlike Gerard Pique, Messi, and Coutinho did not engage in sending her inappropriate messages.
In an interview with MARCA, she stated, “He was the one who sent me the most direct message. The only Barcelona players who never sent me anything were Messi and Coutinho. They are great husbands and they respect their wives very much. Shakira didn’t deserve this.”

“I was completely shocked when I spotted it,” she said.
“If I could, I would tell her not to be worried about me, I’m just a fan. I’m surprised that she isn’t more sure of herself.”
“I guess it can only be because she is jealous. It’s very silly because I’m just a football fan and a huge fan of Barcelona. This is such an over reaction,” concluded the Brazilian model.
Suzy Cortez’s relationship with Gerard Pique
According to Cortez, Pique indulged in explicit discussions while being in a committed relationship and residing with Shakira. This revelation implies that the athlete had been disloyal to the singer on numerous instances, extending beyond his involvement with Clara Chía Marti.
“I was friends with the former president of Barcelona, Sandro Rosell. When Piqué found out, he asked for my phone number and sent me a message. Later, once I was back in Brazil, he even slid into my Instagram DMs, inquiring about my return to Europe and, rather inappropriately, asking about the size of my derrière (butt),” she said.

Moreover, Suzy Cortez revealed her reason for maintaining secrecy regarding Pique’s conduct by emphasizing her desire to show respect toward Shakira. Despite receiving explicit photos from Piqué, she chose not to open them. Additionally, Piqué extended an audacious offer of a private jet to transport her from London. Cortez firmly believed that such actions constituted a significant lack of respect, and Shakira undoubtedly deserved better treatment.
