Global music superstar, Shakira, says she made sacrifices for Barcelona star Gerard Pique before their relationship split in June.
According to her, Pique didn’t put enough effort into their long-term relationship.
“As a soccer player, he wanted to play football and to win titles and I had to support him,” Shakira told Elle. “I mean, one of the two of us had to make a sacrifice, right? Either he would stop his contract with Barcelona and move to the U.S. with me, where my career is, or I would have to do that instead.
“One of the two had to make that effort and that sacrifice. And I did it. I put my career in second gear and I came to Spain, to support him so he could play football and win title. And it was a sacrifice of love.
“Thanks to that, my kids were able to have a present mom, and I have this amazing bond with them that is unbreakable and that sustains us. You know, that is it. That’s all I can say.”
Through their 11 years together, where they raised two sons, Shakira and Piqué were never actually married.
