World-renowned music artist Shakira is spending her Christmas in the middle-eastern country of the United Arab Emirates. She is in Dubai with her children Milan and Sasha. This is the first time that Milan and Sasha are not spending Christmas with their father, former soccer player Gerard Pique.
Earlier this year, Shakira and Pique officially separated from each other. They went through long hours of meetings to decide the custody of their children. Shakira won that battle and is set to relocate to Miami with the children next year.

This was a very difficult year for the couple. Shakira’s year was marred with a custody battle and a tax fraud case. Meanwhile, Pique went through a custody battle, lost the battle, and also announced a premature retirement from soccer.

She arrived in Dubai last Wednesday and could reportedly be there until December 30. By December 30, she has agreed to deliver Milan and Sasha to their father to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
According to reports, Shakira plans to move with the kids to Miami to start a new life there from January 5, 2023. The couple is still having a dispute over this date because Pique wants to attend the Cabalgata de Los Reyes Magos, or Three Kings Day parade on January 5, in Barcelona with his kids. The parade brings dancers, musicians, and other artists to the streets of the Spanish city.
Shakira’s 2022 was marred by a custody battle with Pique and a tax fraud case
Shakira has gone through a horrid 2022. On June 4, 2022, Pique and Shakira announced to the world that they are separating. Since then, Shakira has been fighting legal battles most of the time.
The couple had to decide who will get custody of their children. Shakira won that case after a twelve-hour-long meeting that included both the parties’ lawyers. She is set to relocate to Miami with her children early next year.

Shakira is also set to enter another trial. This time for her 2018 tax evasion case. The Columbian singer is accused of not paying taxes from 2012-2014. But Shakira has denied all the allegations and did not agree to the settlement terms offered to her and decided to go on a trial to prove her innocence but the date of the trial is still unknown.
The 45-year-old is also intertwined with the Pique family. She is involved in the businesses of Pique and his father Joan Pique. It is reported that Shakira does not want to associate herself with them anymore. However, it is unclear if she is looking for financial compensation.
