Shakira admits seeing ex Gerard Piqué with his girlfriend ‘hurt’
Shakira admits to being “hurt” by her ex Gerard Piqué’s relationship with his girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti, in a blistering new song.
In her “TQG” collaboration with Karol G, released Friday, Shakira sings in Spanish that she is “already set” all by herself.
“You are no longer welcome here,” read the loosely translated lyrics from the first verse. “I saw what your girlfriend threw at me / It doesn’t make me angry / I laughed.”
In the chorus, the Grammy winner, 46, teams up with 32-year-old Karol, who ended her engagement to Anuel AA in 2021, to warn their exes’ “new babies” that they do not “compete for men.”
Later in the song, Shakira sings that she got “triple M” when Piqué, 36, left her last year, calling herself “much hotter, much tougher, much lighter.”
The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer goes on to claim that the former soccer player “wants to get back together,” which she would be an “idiot” to do, singing that her life getting “even better” without her ex has “offended” him.

Shakira also accuses Piqué of “‘liking’ a photo of” hers.
“My love, you really distanced yourself,” she concludes. “And I can’t see so far away, baby.”
News broke in June 2022 that Shakira and Piqué had called it quits after 11 years together. They share two sons: Milan, 10, and Sasha, 8.
The athlete was spotted with Marti that same month, with reports surfacing in January that Piqué had allegedly cheated — and Shakira found out when she discovered someone had eaten her jam while she was traveling.
The “Whenever, Wherever” performer was “devastated to learn that [Marti] clearly felt at home in the house [Shakira and Piqué] shared with their children,”.
“TQG” is not the first time Shakira has dissed her ex in a song since his alleged infidelity, with her music video for “Te Felicito” with Rauw Alejandro seemingly alluding to the scandal by showing a man’s head on a platter in her fridge.

Additionally, Shakira sang in January’s “BZRP Music Session #53” that Piqué left her with “[her] mother-in-law as [her] neighbor [and] media outlets at [her] door.”
The former FC Barcelona player and Marti went public with their relationship via Instagram that same month.
Shakira subsequently posted a video of herself mouthing SZA’s “Kill Bill” lyrics about wanting to murder an ex and his new girlfriend.
The Colombian pop star said in October 2022 that transitioning to single parenthood has been “incredibly difficult” for her.
“It’s been tough not only for me, but also for my kids,” she told Elle at the time. “We have a job to do for these two incredible boys, and I have faith that we will figure out what is best for their future, their own dreams in life, and what is a fair solution for everyone involved.”
