Shakira reportedly separated from her boyfriend of 12 years, Gerard Peake, following the cheating scandal in early June. The couple have officially started their custody battle over Milan (9) and Sasha Pique Mebarak (7).
Shakira and Pique’s custody battle has remained largely unknown for the most part, but the couple are reportedly unable to come to an agreement at this time. They all involve their lawyers to decide which party will have custody of their children.
Shakira, Gerard Peake want to give their kids something different
In the custody battle, both sides have revealed their intentions for the child. Pique wanted to stay in Catalonia with their children, while Shakira wanted to move with them to Miami, Florida. Reports say she wants to move to Miami because she doesn’t have a circle of friends in Barcelona.
While some might think Shakira’s desire to move to Miami was random, she has family there, including her two brothers and parents. Reports said Pique had angered the pop star by refusing to let Shakira move to Florida with the kids. Shakira, in turn, threatened Pique that she would reveal his secret. The secrets will apparently include details of his personal life, which have so far remained unknown.
Singer refuses to bow to Pique’s demands
According to sources, Shakira went through many stages after the relationship ended, with anger, despair and sadness. Due to the nature of the breakup, she realized she didn’t really know Pique. The Colombian singer has vowed to keep fighting for what she wants.
“She’s no stranger to the stupidity of her boy liking her, but of course it never occurred to her that he’d been unfaithful to her from the year they met,” the source shared.
Meanwhile, Shakira has spoken to many who have opened their eyes to the matter. Apparently, Pique didn’t try to hide when he cheated. Pique feared she would bring his “dirty laundry” into the fight for forced negotiations, the report said.
“If she had to play that trick, she would. All his adventures and some surprises left no one indifferent,” the source explained. “There are things that could hurt him a lot, not just a couple or family thing.”
In this ongoing battle, Pique continues to live his life. At this point, he had not yet come out of the fatherhood of their children. He recently brought Milan and Sasha to London.
On June 2, it was revealed that Shakira and Gerard Pique would split after nearly 12 years of dating. At the time, it was reported that Pique had been betraying Shakira with another woman. The former couple met during the 2010 FIFA World Cup and started dating shortly after. Although they had children together, they were never engaged or married.
