Um, and yeah, it’s hard to talk about, mostly because I’m still going through it and because I’m in the public eye and because our breakup isn’t like a normal breakup.” Shakira and Piqué first announced in June of this year announced they were ending their relationship after 12 years together. The couple released a joint statement at the time, which read: “We regret to confirm that we are separating.

I have paparazzi camping outside my house 24/7. And there is no place I can hide from them with my children except in my own house. You know, we can’t walk in the park like a normal family or go out for ice cream or do anything without paparazzi following us. So it’s hard. And I tried to hide the situation from my children. I try to do it and protect her because that is my most important mission in life.

I was busy fulfilling my professional obligations around the world. Second, I paid everything they said I owed even before they filed a lawsuit. So, as of today, I don’t owe them anything. Finally, I was advised by one of the top four tax firms in the world, PricewaterhouseCoopers, so I felt confident from day one to do things right and transparently.” Cheated millions of dollars in taxes.
