POLL: Could You Work with Your Ex?

After hearing about Shakira and Antonio de la Rua's split this morning, we were particularly struck by something the Colombian singer mentioned in her post to fans about the split.

"Antonio continues to oversee and conduct my business and career interests as he has always done," Shakira wrote. "We move forward as partners, developing projects together, working hand in hand and in close communication."

Even if a split is mutual and amicable, it must be tough to keep working with someone you shared an intimate relationship with for so many years.
