Shakira and Gerard Pique broke up after 11 years of being together this June

Shakira is channeling all the strength in her to cope with her very public breakup with Gerard Pique earlier in June.

Speaking to Hollywood Life, a source close to the singer revealed, “Everyone’s amazed at by how well Shakira is holding up, considering everything she’s going through.”

They shared that the Hips Don’t Lie singer, is not letting her personal issues get in the way of her work ethic.

“No one would blame her if she wanted to put everything on hold but that’s just not her style, her work ethic is next level. She says that staying busy is the best thing for her, she doesn’t want to waste time crying over the past,” the source told the outlet.

The insider also claimed her strong persona is to protect their kids and not let the negativity on the internet affect their wellbeing. “She’s determined not to let them see her sad, right now everything she does is about protecting them and making this transition as easy as possible,” the source continued.

A second source also dished out on current feelings of the Waka Waka songstress, stating, “Shakira has always maintained a relatively private personal life, but with everything going on in the news about her, she decided it was finally time to speak her own truth rather than have others assume what she is going through. This very public split would be a lot for anyone to deal with, but she’s handling things the best she knows how.”
