Why did Shakira Meet Her Ex Boyfriend After her Breakup with Gerard Pique?
Following her breakup with Pique, Shakira was reached out to by de la Rua. The Argentine lawyer said he would be willing to help the Colombian singer with anything she needs. The two agreed and met up in Miami. The news was broken by Karina Lavícoli, from an Argentine TV program.

Who is Shakira’s long-time ex-boyfriend Antonio de la Rua
Antonio de la Rua is an Argentine lawyer and son of the former president of Argentina, Fernando de la Rua. He was one of the advisors of the president and even headed his presidential campaign. The Argentine was in a long 11-year relationship with Shakira from 2000 before she met Pique.
The singer had even dedicated a song, Día de Enero, to de la Rua. The relationship’s ending though was bitter. Although Shakira released a statement saying, “We view this period of separation as temporary and as a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives.” Despite this, de la Rua sued the Colombian for $250 million but an LA-based court dismissed the charge in 2013.
