Shakira aims to protect her sons amid split with Gerard Piqué

Shakira spilled how she navigates her split with longtime partner Gerard Piqué.

In her recent appearance on the October 2022 digital cover of ELLE Magazine, the Hips Don't Lie singer, 45, opened up about protecting her kids after her separation from the soccer star. 

The couple share sons Sasha, 7, and Milan, 9.

While talking about the constant pressure she feels with the presence of paparazzi outside her home, "it's hard to talk about it, especially because I'm still going through it," the singer explained.

She further added, "There's not a place where I can hide from them with my kids, except for my own house. You know, we can't take a walk in the park like a regular family or go have an ice cream or do any activity without paparazzi following us,"

The Waka Waka singer explained despite of the difficult circumstances she has done whatever she could to "conceal" the situation from her kids.

"I try to do it and to protect them, because that's my number one mission in life," she stated.

while talking about the pressure she feels about co-parenting relationship with Piqué she told, "Regardless of how things ended or how Gerard and I feel about each other as ex-partners, he is the father of my children. We have a job to do for these two incredible boys, and I have faith that we will figure out what is best for their future, their own dreams in life, and what is a fair solution for everyone involved," she said, adding, "And I hope and would appreciate if we were given the space to do that privately."
