Colombia singer Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, known by her stage name Shakira has announced that she is moving out of Barcelona. This follows the ending of her 11-year relationship with former Spain and Barcelona football star Gerard Pique.

In an Instagram post announcing the news of her move, she said she settled in Barcelona for the stability of her children. She has two children with Pique, Milan who is 10 years old and Sasha who is eight years.

“I settled in Barcelona to give my children stability, the same we are now looking for in another corner of the world next to family, friends and the sea,” she captioned the skyline photo on Instagram. “Today we start a new chapter in the pursuit of their happiness,” she said.

“Thank you to everyone who surfed alongside me so many waves there in Barcelona, the city where I learned that friendship is certainly longer than love. Thank you to everyone who has been there to cheer me up, dried my tears, inspired me and made me grow.

Then to her fans, she said, “Thank you to my Spanish audience who have always wrapped me in their love and loyalty. For you, just a see you later and as my father said so many times, see you around the curves!” she concluded her statement which was originally in Spanish.

Shakira has reportedly set her eyes on moving back to Miami, Florida where her children are expected to start school on April 11. The decision has annoyed Pique who feels angered by the short notice.
