Since the break-up, Gerard has been spotted passionately kissing his new love interest Clara as they appear to be far from hiding their new relationship. 

The singer-songwriter, makes it crystal clear she is referring to the 23-year-old her former partner is rumoured to have started dating last year before they split, saying: ‘I’m worth two 22’s. You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo. You traded a Rolex for a Casio.’

In an apparent brutal dig at the former Manchester United and Barcelona defender, Shakira sings: ‘A lot of gyms. But work your brain a little bit too.’

Shakira makes another clear allusion to Clara with the lyrics: ‘She’s got the name of a good person. Clearly is not how it sounds.

‘Clearly’ in English translates as ‘Claramente’ in Spanish, clearly referencing Clara, as one fan pointed out.

Elsewhere Shakira, who is facing a £12 million tax fraud trial in Spain, sings: ‘You left me the mother-in-law as a neighbour. With the press at my door and a debt with the taxman.

‘You thought you’d hurt me and I came back stronger. Women don’t cry any more, women invoice.’

Another part of the song says: ‘From love to hate there’s only one step’ before Shakira adds: ‘No hard feelings baby, I wish you the best with my supposed replacement.’

Only a small part of the lyrics had been leaked online ahead of the world release, referencing a part of the song where the mum-of-two sings: ‘I’m too big for you, that’s why you’re with someone just like you” before continuing: ‘I’m not coming back to you, even if you’re crying or begging.’

She also used another play-on-words in Spanish with the word ’salpique’ in a clear reference to her ex, singing: ‘I only make music, sorry that I splash you’ which in Spanish is ‘Yo solo hago música perdón que te salpique.’

Gerard, who fathered two sons with Shakira during their 11-year relationship, appeared to respond to the poisoned darts thrown in his and his new partner’s direction ahead of the song’s full release with a tweet featuring circus emoticons.

It is not the first time Shakira has seemingly shaded Gerard in her music after making reference to a ‘necessary’ split with an ex who is as ‘cold as Christmas’ in her song Monotonía.

The song, meaning Monotony in English, starts with Shakira singing in Spanish: ‘It wasn’t your fault, nor was it mine. It was monotony’s fault. I never said anything but it hurt me. I knew this would happen.’

She then alludes to the relationship being over before it ended, singing: ‘It’s a necessary goodbye. What used to be incredible became routine.

‘Your lips don’t taste of anything to me. Now it’s the complete opposite.’ 

Appearing to reference the end of her relationship, she says: ‘You left me because of your narcissism. You forgot what you used to be.

‘Distant with your attitude, and that filled me with worry. You didn’t give even half. I know I gave more than you.’  

In the music video, Shakira walks dejectedly through a supermarket with tears in her eyes before being shot through the chest by bazooka by a mystery man.

‘The ones who leave are fewer than the many who stay by our side. Our tears are not in vain, they water the soil our future will spring from and make us more human, so that even while suffering heartache we can continue to love. Shak.’

Elsewhere, video footage also recently emerged which is said to show Gerard’s new girlfriend in the footballer’s family home before his split from Shakira. 

Shakira has reportedly been left ‘devastated’ at the unearthed footage from August 2021, which was recorded ten months before she announced she had split from her partner of 11 years.

Speaking to Page Six, an insider claims Gerard, 35, and Shakira, 45, were still living ‘happily together’ at the time.

It came just weeks after Shakira and Gerard reunited in court to ratify their separation child custody agreement.

The exes announced their separation in June after 11 years together, and they recently said they’d come to a suitable arrangement for their children after a 12-hour talk.

They formally signed the agreement in Barcelona, entering and exiting the court separately while flagged by their legal teams.

Gerard, who has retired from football, is said to have given his blessing to his former partner’s move to Miami with their two sons to avoid a lengthy legal battle.

Shakira’s wish to move to the city where she used to live and part of her family are based is understood to have been the principal sticking point in the couple’s previous failure to strike an out-of-court settlement.

Spanish press have also reported that Gerard will be able to spend ten days a month with his children as part of his custody agreement with Shakira as well as holiday time.

Catalan daily El Periodico , laying bare what it described as the ‘small print’ of the couple’s accord, said: ‘Gerard Piqué will have his children 10 days a month and the entirety of the three holiday periods that govern the United States, apart from Christmas and the summer holidays, starting next year.

Speaking out on the split back in September, Shakira admitted that it had been an ‘incredibly difficult’ time for her and the family. 

Meanwhile, Gerard and Shakira have reportedly agreed to sell the exclusive Barcelona mansion where they raised their two sons.
