Shakira is getting closer and closer to completing her separation from Gerard Piqué.
The Colombian singer recently won custody of their two children and will be moving to Miami, FL. at the beginning of 2023.
She won’t be living in Barcelona, Spain much longer, so she’s been hard at work to sell the mansion she once shared with the soccer stud.
Shakira & Gerard Piqué Agree To Sell Home They Once Shared
Shakira and Piqué have agreed to sell the exclusive Barcelona mansion where they’ve been raising their two sons, Milan (9) and Sasha (7).
According to the Daily Mail, the exes will sell their property for £10.5 million and £12 million, which is between $12 to $14 million US dollars.
The mansion is five stories, has a recording studio, gym, paddle tennis court and mini-fútbol pitch. It is located about 30 minutes outside of Barcelona’s city center.
Piqué will continue to live in his penthouse apartment in Barcelona’s trendy Muntaner street with his 23-year-old girlfriend, Clara Chia.
Gerard Piqué Will Stay In Barcelona After Shakira Moves To Miami
Last week, we reported on Shakira and Piqué’s custody agreement.
According to Catalan Press, Shakira will be able to move her two boys from Barcelona, Spain to Miami, FL. next year.
The Blast previously reported on the ex-couple’s bitter custody battle that began in June following their breakup.
Shakira wanted to move her and the kids to Miami for work reasons while Piqué was adamant about keeping their children in Barcelona.
However, the fútbol professional announced his retirement from the sport on Saturday, November 5th, during an emotional final appearance at Camp Nou stadium.
Per the Catalan report, Shakira and Piqué, along with their lawyers, spent 12-hours in a “marathon” meeting to hash out the final custody agreement.
The former FC Barcelona ceded to his ex-girlfriend’s wishes to avoid an ugly court battle. It must be noted the couple never legally married each other.
The “marathon” talks started Monday, November 7th, in the afternoon at Shakira and Piqué’s home in Esplugues de Llobregat.
Their “intense” custody meeting didn’t end until the early hours of Tuesday morning, according to El Periodico.
Shakira & Piqué Settle Their Custody Battle
“The children will spend Christmas in Barcelona but as soon as 2023 begins, the footballer will say goodbye and assume a painful sacrifice so that the youngsters don’t experience an even more traumatic separation between their parents,” reports claim. “He [Piqué] will be able to cross the Atlantic Ocean to see them whenever he wants. The costs will be borne by both of them.”
While Shakira has the custody battle off of her plate, she still faces a major tax fraud lawsuit in Spain and potentially eight-years behind bars.
In September, a Spanish judge ordered that she stand trial for failing to pay her taxes.
Shakira recently spoke out about the impending trial and described it as her “darkest hours.”
The Colombian-native insists she paid her taxes on her income from 2012-2014 while living part-time in Spain.
However, the judge doesn’t buy it and wants to put her behind bars for eight years. In addition to potential time behind bars, she will also be ordered to pay a hefty fine.
Shakira denies any wrongdoing and rejected a plea deal with prosecutors. The plea agreement would’ve allowed her to avoid a trial.
It’s a matter of right versus wrong for the “Hips Don’t Lie” songstress. Her public relations team are adamant that she’s already paid what was owed in addition to three-million euros, which is about $2.8 million US dollars.
She faces six counts of tax fraud. A trial date has yet to be set.
