The split between Gerard Pique and Shakira has been a hot topic for media outlets for almost a year now ever since the couple announced their break up last year after Shakira found out Pique was cheating on her with Clara Chia Marti.
The couple has been a part of numerous public showdowns against each other after Shakira released a diss song with Argentine rapper, Bizarrap, ridiculing Pique for choosing a 23-year-old student over her.
Pique didn’t hold back either and was spotted in a Twingo the very next day and had reportedly bagged a sponsorship from Casio for his ‘King’s League’ but Pique has recently talked about Shakira for the very first time after their break up.

In an interview with Tik Toker, John Nellis, Pique was asked who was the most famous person on his phone contacts from outside of the soccer world to which the ex-Barcelona player replied with Shakira’s name. He also revealed that if it would be in soccer, it would be Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Portuguese is the most followed on social media.
Pique’s answer caught the fans by surprise as they think it is a nice gesture by him to take his ex-partner’s name even though Pique is a global star himself and might have more famous connections than Shakira, yet he chose to take her name.
Gerard Pique disconnected from soccer after breakup?
Pique also talked about his life ever since the breakup and stated how difficult it has been for him with the ongoing saga and stated that he hadn’t been watching soccer and only watched the World Cup final.
He said: “It was crazy, I didn’t watch any of the matches, except for the final.”

He also stated that he needed some time for himself to go through everything that happened and heal so he chose to go on a holiday and disconnect from soccer to give himself some time to get back.
He added: “I needed to disconnect and go on holiday for a few days, the last few months have been complicated for me, I needed to disconnect from football,”
Meanwhile, Shakira also did an interview for the first time since the breakup where she also opened up about her life post the breakup and how difficult it was for her to get out of it and heal.
It seems like both Gerard Pique and Shakira have healed and moved on in their life after a brutal drama that unfolded over the last few months and we hope both of them have found their peace, finally.
