Money was the reason Shakira and Pique split
The only sure thing in the whole story of the last days of Shakira and Pique is that they are no longer together. Some say betrayal on his part was the cause of the split.
The last to speak and give some details is Shakira's former brother-in-law, Roberto Garcia.
Since Garcia has been Shakira's sister's boyfriend for a long time he claims to know a few more things. According to him, the couple was separated for the money.
"According to what a person very close to them told me, there was an economic problem between the two. Pique has asked Shakira for money on an investment issue and her family or she herself has refused to give it to him. They have never pooled their money and have kept the household economy divided at 50%.
He adds that the couple never got married and that even Shakira herself did not want something like that.
According to Reuters, the two announced their separation, writing: "We regret to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect our privacy. Thank you for understanding."
They have two sons Milan and Sasha together.
