Gerard Pique has told people he had an ‘open relationship’ with Shakira

I can’t even imagine being married to a footballer, or being in some kind of serious romantic relationship with a footballer. All of it seems so dramatic and heavy on infidelity and such. It’s a wonder Shakira made it eleven years with Gerard Pique, although it was probably pretty dramatic behind-the-scenes. Shakira wanted it to work and – I believe – she largely chose to look the other way on Pique’s extracurricular activities. Now that they’ve officially separated, the Spanish tabloids are going crazy. Marca quoted a journalist friend of Pique, Jose Antonio Aviles, who claimed that “there was no infidelity” between Shakira and Pique because they had an “open relationship… Their agreement was ‘you do what you want and I’ll do what I want’, but to present themselves as a couple to the public.” Pique is loathsome. There’s more, of course:

According to 20minutos, however, the definitive decision to part ways and to release a statement was made after Shakira twice tried to mend the relationship. They report that, even as the relationship started to crumble, Shakira was so in love that she tried to get back together with Pique at least once and possibly twice.

In the same report from 20minutos, they add that, despite the suffering reflected in her recent single ‘Te Felicito’, the Colombian held out hope of being able to heal the wounds. But, this hasn’t been possible and 20minutos add that they had been growing apart for some time, even if the official statement only came out this past week.

This matches other reports, which have claimed that Pique was living in an apartment on his own and had been for some time. Even before the official statement, there were rumours and reports about the couple and El Periodico claimed that Pique had been unfaithful, even if other outlets have denied this.

There were reports that the footballer had been seen with a 22-year-old blonde girl and that she was a friend of Riqui Puig’s girlfriend.

“Pique had wanted to separate for a while, but not Shakira,” journalist Lorena Vazquez stated on ‘Ya es Mediodia’. “I can’t say exactly what relationship Pique has with this girl, but I do know that it made Shakira feel bad.”

Yeah, it wouldn’t surprise me if Shakira did try to reconcile with Pique after he left. Even though it’s clear the guy is a massive douche, she still loves him and he’s still the father of her two kids. And you see that Pique has sent his bros out to talk about their “open relationship” and how Shakira was clingy and desperate to reconcile, right? Poor Shakira.

    His whole vibe just whispers “riddled with pox ” to me.

  2. Lady Luna says:

    Even though I find him gross, he was like 23 to her 33 when they met. Obviously he was not mature and it looks like he’s still not mature enough.

    Imagine treating a goddess like Shakira poorly smdh…

    Ugh, it depresses me when a powerful woman seems to be hypnotize by an awful, awful man and can’t seem to leave him and just stand her ground. Shakira is worth a 1000 Pique.

    Also, it seems like a lot of sports men in general (see baseball players, hockey players…) are pretty awful husband/committed relationship material. Yikes

      Clingy? It’s an 11-year marriage, not a 3-month relationship. Unless there is abuse or you mutually agree that it is beyond repair, you are supposed to try and make it work. What a nasty little worm he is. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

        Just an FYI, my response was meant to piggyback on a different comment down thread.

    I hope Shakira knows soon that she’s someone’s dream and feels that she deserves a lot more than GP the cheating cheater. Not trying to diminish his accomplishments or footballers in general, but geez, she is SHAKIRA!!!! I hope she tries everything into her world, getting it whenever and wherever.

  6. Jasper says:

    So he sent he friends to spill about how “clingy” she was. Such a gentleman that one. Just from that alone we can tell that she’s well rid of him.

    • Lens says:

      From what I’ve gathered a lot of famous relationships are “open”. Or at least infidelity runs rampant whether it’s sports guys, musicians or actors. When those kinds of people are given a lot of opportunities to cheat because people throw themselves at those guys they will take it. And a guy who settled down at 23 and had two kids (despite not legally marrying) might feel like he “missed out”. So although we’ve all just heard of it it’s probably been unraveling for a long time.

  7. Gm says:

    I don’t know much about this couple but she’s the mother of his 2 kids and they’ve been together many years. After breaking up he should try to take high road and not badmouth her. I haven’t heard of her badmouthing him. The cheating talk does not seem to be coming from her camp and really comparing the youth of your new conquest to the mother of your children?

  8. Anna says:

    I wonder how often open marriage is really a mutual desire and decision, and how many times one person knows nothing will stop the cheating and just agrees to whatever but is miserable. Shakira was in one long term relationship as far as I know and she doesn’t strike me as an open marriage person…

    I wish women would start looking at guys with eyes wide open and realize that if they want a stable relationship they should look for stable guys… they are out there but often overlooked. Why go for a young athlete? We all know how it always ends.

    I feel for Shakira. You build a life with a man and have a family only to be betrayed and most assuredly trashed in the tabloids. Sucks.

  10. jferber says:

    Yeah, I think it’s news to her (after 11 years together) that they were in an open relationship. Sorry for her, but not sorry to say that she fell for a jerk. But they can be SO charming.
