‘That’s why there is distance. There may be nothing left, but that (infidelity) is over.’
Representatives did not respond when MailOnline reached out to them for comment.

The She Wolf singer hinted at disharmony between the pair in her latest hit Te Felicito with Rauw Alejandro, in which she sings: ‘To complete you I broken into pieces; I was warned, but I didn’t listen; I realized yours is fake…
‘It was the drop that overflowed the glass; Don’t tell me you’re sorry, that sounds genuine, but I know you well and I know you’re lying.’
The couple had been together since 2011, and the couple had met last year while filming the music video for her World Cup song Waka Waka.

Although the two corresponded in 2010, the relationship between the two megastars would not officially get off the ground until early 2011.

“I like the way we are now. We have two children, nine and seven, we work well as a couple. We don’t need to get married, it’s fine,” Piqué said.
After Gerard made his 600th appearance for Barcelona in March, Shakira marked the milestone with a heartfelt social media post.
In March, the FC Barcelona defender risked his partner’s wrath by claiming that playing against Espanyol was better than sex.
He continued The wild project with YouTuber Jordi Wild: ‘I’m happy that Espanyol has been promoted to the first division, because that’s how we play in their stadium.
‘I like coming here, I get whistled all the time. You laugh and the fans get even crazier.
‘There is nothing like it in the world. I’d say it’s better than sex. I enjoy it much more than playing against Real Madrid.”

The Hips Don’t Lie singer has previously praised her boyfriend for his parenting style, claiming that he is her “biggest support” when it comes to raising their children.
She said: ‘He is down to earth and very practical in solving problems. When I’m stressed about how to organize or juggle things, he helps put it all in perspective.
“And he’s my biggest support. We are both very practical parents, so it never feels like you have to carry the whole load alone. But he probably makes them eat a little more chocolate than I’d like.’
