Cheating’ Pique looks miserable as he’s spotted smoking a cigar in Paris cafe after being slammed by Shakira in new song
GERARD Pique was spotted looking miserable after lighting up a cigar in a Paris cafe amid his messy split from Shakira.
The stony-faced footballer was pictured in the French capital on Tuesday and seemed to coordinate his outfit with his mood.
Pique sported a bulky black coat and hoodie paired with grey trousers as he headed out with friends on the brisk evening.
He was seen chatting with pals on the street after smoking a cigar for some stress relief inside a nearby cafe.
The dad appeared to be engaged in deep conversation with another male as he puffed his cares away.
The 35-year-old was also snapped as he intensely gazed at his phone during his mid-week outing in the city of love.
He then got geared up for his motorcycle ride home by slipping on a scooter helmet.
It marks a drastic change in his persona in just a matter of days following the release of Shakira’s scathing diss track.
She channeled her emotions into her music and released a new song titled Out of Your League, brimming with thinly veiled references to her ex.
The couple split last summer as the former Barcelona ace left her for Clara Chia Marti, 23.
The 45-year-old pulled no punches and brazenly took aim at the loved-up pair, comparing the relationship to swapping “a Ferrari for a [Renault] Twingo”.
Pique seemed to laugh off the reference – by turning up to work in the budget motor with an amused look on his face.
It was even claimed that he was taunting the mother of his two children with the reg plate – 2511 MDJ.
Reports suggest the numbers are in fact the specific date, November 25, that he left the family home in Barcelona.
The pair have become embroiled in a public spat following speculation that he was unfaithful to the Colombian pop star.
Rumours have swirled that Shakira first smelt a rat after taking a look in her fridge at their five-storey property.
The songstress is said to have returned home from a period of travelling to find a jar of her strawberry jam had been eaten.
It’s been claimed that Pique follows a strict diet and would not have tucked into the jam – and neither would her children.
The She Wolf singer is then said to have come to the conclusion that someone else – more specifically another woman – had been in her home, and her fridge.
She reportedly recruited a private investigator to snoop on the footie ace in a bid to confirm her suspicions.
The detective is said to have spotted the Spaniard frequenting the nightclub where his now girlfriend Clara worked.
According to Spanish TV show El Gordo y la Flaca, the detectives even obtained photos of the pair getting cosy.
But Shakira was forced to pay an agency to keep the damning photos private after the PI firm flogged them to paparazzi.
She also reportedly noticed Clara lurking behind Pique during a Zoom interview at their family home in August 2021.
It was ten months before she and Gerard announced their separation after their 12-year romance.
The split provided the inspiration for her explosive new track, which slammed Pique with a string of brutal barbs.
In another twist Shakira put a terrifying life-size witch doll on her balcony, facing her mother-in-law’s house in the same street.
Neighbours reported she also blasted out the new song on repeat so Gerard’s mum, Montserrat Bernabéu, could hear.
The singer is now reportedly building a wall between the two properties to try and distance herself from her in-laws.
She is said to have been furious to discover Pique’s parents actively supported his new romance with Clara.
The vitriolic break-up comes 12 years after they met on the set of the video for Shakira’s 2010 World Cup anthem, Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).
