Shakira, 45, used New Year’s Day to lash out at her ex-husband Gerard Pique, according to London Insider on Tuesday.

After more than a decade of marriage, the couple announced their divorce in June 2022, issuing a joint statement.

In it, they stated that doing what is best for their two children would be their “top priority.”

The Barcelona defender has already moved on, dating a 23-year-old student and being seen in public with her on several occasions.

Meanwhile, Shakira poked fun at Pique in her New Year’s message, which she shared on Instagram, as she opened up about healing from “betrayal,” alluding to the footballer cheating on her.

She wrote:

“Even if our are still open in this new year, time has surgeon’s hands. Even if someone has betrayed us, we must continue to trust others.”

She added:

“When faced with contempt, continue to know your worth. Because there are more good people than indecent ones. More people with empathy than indifference.”

Shakira and Pique were in court in late 2022 to work out a custody arrangement for their two children, Milan and Sasha, who are 7 and 9, respectively.

They appeared in court separately with their own lawyers and legal teams, and after more than 10 hours of deliberation, they agreed on a custody arrangement.

Shakira is said to want to return to Miami with her two children, while Pique will remain in Barcelona.

According to reports, the FC Barcelona legend eventually agreed.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that the couple’s previous residence in Barcelona with their two children has been listed for sale as part of their divorce settlement.

Pique, 35, emotionally retired from football in late 2022.

He has several business ventures that he will continue to work on after retiring from professional football.
