The couple do not seem to be separating according to Shakira.
Rumours of a ‘split’ has now been denied by the the Hips Don’t Lie singer through a statement she issued to HOLA magazine via her publicist.
It reads: “Shakira and Gerard Piqué’s relationship is still going strong. Everything is the same.”
It added that claims of a split were “only rumors ” from people “who want to harm Pique.”
The defender appeared to confirm their six-year-old relationship by replying to Shakira’s tweet with a series of star struck emoji’s.
The two met before the 2010 World Cup and have been together since. They have two children Milan and Sasha.
