Barcelona legend Gerard Pique has reacted to former partner Shakira’s live performance on the Jimmy Fallon Show, stating that he’ll refrain from talking about their separation to protect their children.
After being together for over a decade, Pique and Shakira went their separate ways in June 2022. The former Barcelona center-back has since entered a new relationship with Clara Chia Marti, while the Colombian singer has focused solely on her work.
In January 2023, the Waka Waka star collaborated with Argentine DJ and producer Bizarrap to release Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53. The song heavily criticizes the Barcelona center-back and even takes potshots at his new girlfriend.
The diss track has garnered a lot of fanfare worldwide, with the singer performing it live on one of America’s most popular shows: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. In an interview with RAC1, Gerard Pique was asked to comment on her former partner’s live performance on Friday (10 March). Here’s what he had to say:
“I do not want to talk. We have a responsibility, those of us who are parents must protect our children. Everyone makes their decisions. I don’t feel like talking anymore.”
Pique has two children with his former partner, nine-year-old Milan and seven-year-old Sasha. Milan recently appeared in a live broadcast of the Gerard Pique-owned Kings League. According to Diario AS, Milan’s mother was bothered by his appearance, as many sensitive topics were discussed there.
