The Always, Wherever artist has split from Gerard Piqué, 35, as they revealed they split last week.

The former couple – who are parents to children Milan, nine, and Sasha, seven – released a joint statement in which they said: “We are sorry to confirm that we are separating.

“We ask for privacy at this time for the well-being of our children, who are our top priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect.’

The Grammy winner and the athlete publicly emerged as a couple in 2011.

The announcement comes amid rumors in Spanish tabloids that the couple was about to break up with sources who claimed he had cheated on the star.

Spanish newspaper El Periodico reported that the couple had been living separately for a few weeks after Piqué was kicked out of the family home by the pop star.

According to sources, Piqué has been living a ‘party lifestyle’ in a single apartment and enjoying nights out with his teammates.

Neither party has addressed the allegations of cheating, but journalist Emilio Pérez reported: ‘(Shakira) has made the decision to separate. This is so. It happened.

‘That’s why there is distance. Perhaps there is nothing else, but this (infidelity) has passed.’

Representatives did not respond when contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The former power couple were hit by split claims in 2017, claiming the two were no longer living together and Shakira had instigated the split.

Weeks of speculation about the couple’s relationship status in the Colombian press followed, with a source claiming she ‘couldn’t handle the situation anymore’.

“It’s something serious and it was she who finally made the decision,” they told the Spanish website Cotilleo.

The She Wolf singer hinted at the disharmony between the duo in her latest hit Te Felicito with Rauw Alejandro, in which she sings: ‘To complete you I broke into pieces; I was warned, but I didn’t listen; I noticed yours is fake…

‘It was the drop that overflowed the glass; Don’t tell me you’re sorry, that sounds sincere, but I know you well and I know you’re lying.

The couple had been together since 2011, with the pair meeting while filming the music video for their World Cup song Waka Waka the year before.

Piqué’s team won the World Cup that year, where his future girlfriend performed during the final game.

Although the two corresponded in 2010, the relationship between the two mega-stars wouldn’t officially take off until early 2011.

In the fall of 2012, Shakira would use her Instagram platform to announce to fans that she was pregnant with the football star’s child.

Just two years after the birth of son Milan, the couple revealed they would be expecting their second child, Sasha, who was born in 2015.

The couple has publicly admitted that they have no plans to get married, but that hasn’t stopped them from having a family life.

Speaking to Gary Neville on a recent episode of The Overlap, the Spanish international explained that he hadn’t proposed because their relationship ‘works fine as it is’.

“I like where we are now. We have two children, nine and seven, we work well as a couple. We don’t need to get married, that’s fine,” Piqué said.

After Gerard made his 600th appearance for Barcelona in March, Shakira marked the milestone with a heartfelt post on social media.

In March, the Barcelona FC defender risked his partner’s wrath by claiming that playing Espanyol was better than sex.

He said on The Wild Project with YouTuber Jordi Wild: “I’m glad Espanyol got promoted to the top flight because that’s how we play in their stadium.

‘I like to go there, I’m whistled all the time. You laugh and the fans get even angrier.

“There is nothing comparable in the world. I would say it’s better than sex. I like it a lot more than playing against Real Madrid.’

The Hips Don’t Lie singer previously praised her boyfriend for his parenting style, claiming he is her ‘biggest support’ when it comes to raising her children.

She said: ‘He’s down to earth and very practical in problem solving. When I get stressed about organizing things or juggling things, it helps put everything in perspective.

‘And he’s my biggest support. We’re both very practical parents, so it never feels like someone is carrying all the load alone. He probably lets them eat a little more chocolate than I’d like.
