Three months after the announcement its split of the football star Gerard pricks, Shakira opens up about how the dissolution of her 11-year marriage has affected her. In a September interview with Shethe superstar has become vulnerable their children, his relationship, and how she’s progressing after one of the most “difficult” years of her life. “It’s really hard to talk about this personally, especially since this is my first time addressing this situation in an interview,” she told the outlet. “It has been difficult not only for me, but also for my children. Incredibly difficult. I have paparazzi camping outside, in front of my house, 24/7.”

Shakira shares two children with her ex, Milan, 9, and Sasha, 7. She explained, “We can’t walk around the park like an ordinary family or go for ice cream or do any activity without paparazzi following us. So it’s hard. And I tried to hide the situation in front of my children. I try to do it and protect them, because it’s my number one mission in life. But then they hear things at school from their friends or they come across unpleasant news and nasty online, and it affects them, you know?”

“Sometimes I just feel like it’s all just a bad dream and I’m going to wake up at some point.”

Shakira also said she was just trying to get through it all as privately as possible. “I stayed quiet and just tried to take it all in,” she noted. “And yeah, it’s hard to talk about it, especially because I’m still going through it, and because I’m in the public eye and because our separation isn’t like a regular separation.”

The singer added that she has a strong support system of trusted friends who check up on her from time to time, but what she really needs right now is space. “Sometimes I just feel like it’s all just a bad dream and I’m going to wake up at some point,” she admitted. “But no, it’s real. And what’s also real is the disappointment of seeing something as sacred and as special as I thought was the relationship I had with the father of my children. and seeing that it turned into something popularized and belittled by the media.”

Shakira has a lot to do. In addition to her separation, the singer also supports his fatherwho has spent much of the last year in intensive care, and she is currently be accused of tax evasion by the Spanish government, which she categorically denied. “As I said, this is probably the darkest hour of my life. But then I think of all those women around the world who are going through hardship, who are going through something as bad as mine or as harder than mine or worse,” she said. “For those women like me who believe in values ​​like family who had the dream, the big dream of having a forever family, to have that dream shattered or torn to pieces is probably one of the most painful things that you can cross.”

Still, Shakira has no intention of going down without a fight. “I think women, we are resilient,” she adds. “So you ask me how I deal with it. And I manage, I guess, by remembering that I have to become an example for my children, that I have to be what they want, what I want them to become. And I want to be there, too, for all the people who have shown me their love and support. That’s my greatest strength. That’s my most powerful driver right now.”
