Shakira & Antonio De La Rua Split After 11 Years

Shakira & Antonio De La Rua Split After 11 Years

Shakira and her long-time love Antonio De La Rua have split after 11 years together.

In a blog entry posted on her website, the 33-year-old Colombian singer said that she and Antonio have been separated since August, but are first coming public about it now.

“Since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship,” she wrote. “Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now.”

However, this separation is not permanent. “We view this period of separation as temporary and as a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives,” Shakira said.

  • Gustav

    Good for her…I mean…everybody knows that he was never interested on her. She was who started the relation. Antonio never loves her and he has always been with other girls. Antonio is an egoist ash..le…good for her…She deserves something better. Piquet is beautiful…and Alejandro Sanz too late for Shaki–It was in the news that he is gonna be a father again for her horrible girlfriend Raquel Perera…

  • meme

    I mean you got to put a ring on that woman if she stick with your ass for over 10 years. Oh well I guess he didn’t like it

  • Ann

    I think she can make a great couple with Rafael Nadal !!!

  • hyoid

    She’s been wanting a bigger commitment from him for years. If you read her past interviews, she’s been talking for the longest time about how she’s ready for marriage and kids. PRobably since she wasn’t getting that from Antonio, she started looking around and landed on Pique? Anyway, I have a feeling that this break will b permanent – he’ll use it as his way out.

  • cath

    Why would you even think that???

  • http://Justjared Jamaal (Shakirabigfan)

    At 1st I was upset, but is she really wanted to be with him, they wouldn’t of split up. She wanted 2 have a baby, so she probz wouldn’t d another concert 4 quite a while, she may still av one with someone else! I was 4th raw back, seet 13 & 14 on the 14th of Dec. 2010, in Manchester, MEN Arena! Lol. My uncle knows one of Shaki’s dancers, Janet! Xx
