Shakira leaves Barcelona for fresh start in the US
After months of speculation, Shakira has finally left Barcelona with her two sons Milan and Sasha, heading to Miami, Florida. The Colombian singer shared a heartfelt post on Instagram bidding farewell to the Spanish city that she called home for the past decade with her now ex-partner, footballer Gerard Piqué.
Shakira’s Emotional Departure from Barcelona
In her Instagram post, Shakira expressed gratitude to everyone who had helped her through tough times, including the people of Barcelona. She wrote in Spanish, “I established myself in Barcelona to give my kids stability, the same one we are now looking for in another corner of the world alongside my family, friends and the sea. Today we start a new chapter in search of their happiness. Thanks to everyone that helped me, dried my tears, inspired me and made me grow.”
The singer shared a post on Instagram on Monday, April 3rd, 2023, announcing her departure from the city and explaining that she was in search of stability for her kids. Shakira announced her separation from Piqué last May after 12 years together, and in September 2022, she broke her silence on the split, admitting it had been “tough” for her children.
Shakira continued, “Thank you to everyone that surfed with me in the Barcelona waves, the city in which I learned that friendship is longer than love. Thanks to all my Spanish fans that gave me their loyalty and love. For you guys, it’s only a see you later and like my father said many times, we’ll see you on the curves.”
A New Chapter for Shakira and Her Children
The singer had been residing in Barcelona with Piqué and their two sons for the past decade. The couple announced their separation last May after 12 years together, with rumors circulating that Piqué had been unfaithful with Clara Chia.
In a recent interview with Elle, Shakira discussed the difficulty of the separation, particularly for her two children. She stated, “I’ve tried to conceal the situation in front of my kids. I try to do it and to protect them, because that’s my number one mission in life.”
Since then, Shakira has released several diss tracks, which some speculate may be aimed at Piqué, seemingly confirming his infidelity.
The move to Miami marks a new chapter for the singer and her family. She is hoping to find stability for her children and to be closer to her family and friends.
