Shakira and Gerard prickswho announced their separation in June, had a seemingly uncomfortable altercation with their 9-year-old son, Milano‘s, baseball game in Barcelona this weekend. The pair sat on opposite sides of the pitch during the game on Saturday, September 24 and didn’t even look at each other until the game was over when they went to interact with their two sons. They also share 7 years Sasha, who left the match with Gerard. Shakira, 45, was accompanied by her mother, Nidia Ripolland some of his friends, while the 35-year-old La Liga club player sat with his own mother, Montserrat Bernabéu.
The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer looked very animated in photos taken of her at the game and cheered on her son with a smile. She was also seen sitting alone in the dugout, where she seemed less excited. Shakira donned a basic black t-shirt and slightly faded skinny jeans paired with a lightweight yellow, gray and white highlighted jacket. The jacket had a purple zippered pocket on the left arm and an orange banner that read “keep clear” on the upper back. It’s unclear if the post was for her ex, her adoring fans, or just an interesting fashion choice. She completed her look with bright yellow slides and black undertones. She let down her caramel colored hair.
Meanwhile, the professional footballer looked comfortable in black jeans, a black t-shirt and a blue denim jacket. He matched his outfit with white sneakers and a blue New York Yankees baseball cap. His 7-year-old son was seen leaving with him after the game.
The awkward encounter came just days after Shakira first opened up about the split. “It’s really difficult to talk about it personally, especially since it’s the first time I’ve addressed this situation in an interview. I stayed quiet and just tried to take it all in,” she said. She, adding that it’s been difficult not just because she’s famous, but because “the split isn’t like a regular split.”
“And so it was difficult not only for me, but also for my children. Incredibly difficult. I have paparazzi camping outside my house 24/7. And there is no place I can hide from them with my children, except my own house,” she continued. “And I tried to hide the situation in front of my children. I try to do that and protect them, because that’s my number one mission in life. But then they hear things at school from their friends or they come across some nasty, nasty news online, and it affects them, you know? »
After the interview, a person close to the global superstar recounted HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she focuses on her career and raising her children after the separation. “Everyone is amazed at how well Shakira is holding up, considering everything she’s been through. No one would blame her if she wanted to put it all on hold, but that’s just not her style, her work ethic is next level,” they noted. “She says staying busy is the best thing for her, she doesn’t want to waste time crying over the past. She’s determined not to let them see her. sad, right now all she’s doing is protecting them and making this transition as easy as possible.
