Shakira’s ex, Gerard Piqué, formalizes romance with Clara Chía Martí on Instagram

Last week, pop star Shakira released a scathing song about Gerard Piqué, but it looks like her ex-boyfriend has a new listening partner.

The retired Spanish soccer star, 35, shared his romance with Clara Chía Martí, 23, on social media, making it official on Instagram with a post on Wednesday. Piqué shared a photo of him snuggling up with Martí in matching black tops, presented without any captions.

Shakira, 45, and Piqué broke off their relationship in June 2022, after 12 years together, amid reports of their alleged infidelity. Shortly after it was learned that she was dating Martí.

The Grammy winner and Piqué share two children, Sasha Piqué Mebarak, 7, and Milan Piqué Mebarak, 9. The former couple agreed that the children would move to Florida this year with Shakira as part of their custody arrangement.

Both Piqué and Martí were reportedly mentioned in Shakira’s vengeful track “Bzrp Music Sessions #53”. In the song, a collaboration with Argentinian DJ and producer Bizarra, Shakira sings that “it’s worth two for 22[-year-olds]” and says that she is “too good for you and that is why you are with someone like you”, according to Billboard.

In an Instagram post celebrating her new music, Shakira called the song a “catharsis” and a “relief.”

“I want to embrace the millions of women who stand up against the ones who make us feel insignificant,” the Grammy winner wrote in a caption translated by Instagram from Spanish to English.

Shakira and Piqué began dating in 2010 after they met on the set of a music video for their song “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” the official anthem of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

In a 2014 interview with the Associated Press, Shakira credited the 2010 World Cup with introducing her to the “love of my life.”

Judging by his dis track, that’s clearly not the case anymore.
