Rumors of trouble in Shakira’s relationship with soccer star Gerard Pique spurred by the fact that the two haven't been photographed together recently have hopefully been put to rest. Our Colombian cover girl shut people up herself yesterday with a short but sweet post on Twitter. “Good luck with the Spanish selection this week and to my number 3, muah! @3gerardpique,” the 34-year-old tweeted, effectively ending any speculation that there was trouble in paradise.
The couple has not been spotted together since their white-water rafting incident earlier this summer, sparking rumors of a troubled relationship. The curiosity surrounding the state of Shaki and Pique’s romance even resulted in a worldwide trending topic on Twitter yesterday. Multiple Latin media outlets hinted that rumors infidelity on Pique’s part were to blame, but now we can all rest assured that the FC Barcelona defender is still Shaki's "sol".
Fans had grown accustomed to seeing Shakira and Pique joined at the hip. During a performance this past spring, the Colombian singer even switched up the lyrics of her hit song “Hips Don’t Lie” to include Pique. Instead of singing, “Oh baby when you talk like that”, she sang, “Oh Pique when you talk like that”!
