Hard time for the singer

Shakira became known for hits such as “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Beautiful Liar.” In fact, these songs are massive hits around the world. Apart from the news that she and Gerard are separating, she faces alleged tax fraud charges. This was after she lost an appeal last May.

Shakira and Gerard met while filming the music video for “Waka, Waka.” This was the theme song for the 2010 World Cup. They confirmed their relationship in March 2011.

Gerard currently plays for FC Barcelona.
