Shakira handed Latin Grammy award by rival of footballer ex-partner | Ents & Arts News

Nov 18, 2023 | Entertainment, News



Singer Shakira won big at this year’s Latin Grammys – including for a track which took a swipe about former partner and footballer Gerard Pique.

The Colombian artist scooped Song of the Year and Best Pop Song for Shakira: Bzrp Music Session, Vol 53, her collaboration with J Bizarrap, an Argentinian producer.

The 46-year-old split with ex-Barcelona defender Gerard Pique in 2022 after more than 11 years together. The pair have two children.

Pique, 36, later struck up a relationship with then 23-year-old Clara Chia.

In the track, she raps lines such as, “I’m worth two 22-year-olds”, “you swapped a Ferrari for a Twingo” and “a She-Wolf like me isn’t for rookies”.

She also said, “there’s a thin line between love and hate, don’t come back here, trust me” and “when I needed you, you gave me the worst version of you”.

She was presented with the award by Sergio Ramos, former Spanish international teammate and defender for fierce rivals Real Madrid.

In her speech, Shakira thanked fans for being with her through “difficult moments”, widely thought to be a reference to her split with Pique, and dedicated the award to the “Spanish public”.

She also performed her track Acrostico at the ceremony, which was again thought to be about her relationship with Pique.

But despite her successes, her legal troubles continue to mount over alleged unpaid tax bills.

In her latest case, it is alleged Shakira failed to declare profits of $12.5m (£10.2m) from an advance payment for her El Dorado World Tour, among others. At that time, she was in a relationship with Pique and living in Barcelona with their two children.

Prosecutors accuse her of using offshore bank accounts.

Previously, a spokesperson for the star said she had “always acted in concordance with the law and on the advice of her financial advisers”.
