The FC Barcelona player recently announced his separation from Shakira, the Colombian singer with whom they had been together for more than 10 years. Now, at the end of summer, there have been many rumors about the Bonanova footballer’s private life, and his lawyers, speaking on his behalf, have issued a statement to “clarify some defamation and unverified information” . OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION: “Since last June 4 Shakira and Gerard Piqué confirmed their separation through a joint statement, many rumors and alleged unverified information have been published about the player, his family and his personal life and, therefore, These reports and images cause not only damage to his honor and damage to his image, but also a serious attack on the rights of his children, whose safety and protection represent his greatest concern,” the text begins. Likewise, the soccer player denounces that there has been media harassment by the paparazzi: “At the same time, the monitoring of some media and paparazzi has been continuous, seeing our client forced to alter his daily routine with the sole purpose of protecting his children, his family and his closest environment.” “Gerard Piqué has always respected the activity of the media and their right to information, and is fully aware of the fundamental role they play in our society,” the athlete’s lawyers clarify, before revealing that precautionary measures have been requested from dismissal and legal action taken. “However, in recent weeks there have been interferences that go beyond the limits of legality, for which our client has been forced to request precautionary measures of removal and take legal action against those who alter their family life and violate the rights of their children, given that Gerard Piqué’s sole objective is to guarantee their well-being and restore their rights to privacy, security and tranquility”, they also announce in the statement sent to the press.

His separation from Shakira after more than ten years of courtship and with children in common, and the images with his new partner, make Piqué be in the eye of the hurricane and could affect his performance on the field in a 2022/23 season that It seems very important and exciting for the ‘culés’.
