Shakira’s ex Gérard Pique, 35, dating student Clara Chia Marti, 23, after marriage split


GERARD PIQUE has wasted no time moving on from pop beauty Shakira following their split after 12 years.

I can reveal the Barcelona footballer has for the past few months been secretly dating a student who works for him.

It sparks questions over whether their romance started before he parted ways with the Hips Don’t Lie hitmaker.

At 23, PR student Clara Chia Marti is 12 years his junior and is believed to have met him while working on events at his production company Kosmos.

Those close to the couple say they have been seeing each other for some time.

That is likely to be a surprise for Shakira, who has two children with Gerard and whose separation was announced in June.

A source close to Clara said: “Gerard and Clara have been seeing each other for months.

“She is a student who also works for him in his office, organising events.

“They have been keeping quiet about their relationship but those around them all know what is happening.

“People have been helping him keep the romance hush-hush and have wiped Clara’s social media accounts so people can’t find photos of her. That alone makes his mates think he is actually quite serious about being with her.”

Shakira, one of the best-selling music artists of all time, met Gerard in 2010 after he featured in the video to her song Waka Waka, released for footie’s World Cup that year.

She has not revealed the reasons behind the split but the couple have agreed on a temporary custody agreement — despite Gerard wanting the kids to stay with him in Barcelona and Shakira being keen for them to relocate to Miami with her.

The singer has been keeping busy in the US as a judge on telly show Dancing With Myself, alongside Nick Jonas.

In April she released the single Te Felicito with Puerto Rican singer Rauw Alejandro, which will feature on her upcoming 12th album.

Representatives for Pique, Shakira and Clara Chia were contacted.

Shakira has plenty to be getting on with, so she is well shot of Gerard and his drama.
