It is being speculated that Shakira caught Pique cheating on her with another woman but the two are yet to confirm or refute the rumours.

It is said that Pique has been staying alone in his own apartment for weeks following Shakira’s discovery of his alleged infidelity.

Recently, Pique was put on the spot about his failure to tie the knot with the singer, to which he said; 

“No, I’m not married. It’s her mentality. I like it how we are right now. We have two kids, nine and seven right now. We work good as a couple.” 

Speaking in a podcast in February, Shakira said that she and her husband sometimes disagree about timeliness because of their different upbringings.
