Both have spoken publicly about the split. Shakira told Elle, "This is really hard to talk about personally — especially because I’m still going through it, and because I’m in the public eye, and because our separation is not like a regular separation. And so it’s been tough not only for me but also for my kids."
She also released a diss track, "Te Felicito (I Congratulate You)," where she called Gerard a "rookie" and suggested that he was unfaithful.
As for Gerard, he debuted a new relationship and told El País that he's focused on being a good father.
