If you follow the sultry latina’s social pages you’re probably wondering who the lucky fellow getting all up close and snuggly with Shakira is in her latest Twitpic. He’s Gerard Pique, a Spanish footballer (soccer player in Americanese), currently playing as a central defender for FC Barcelona.
Shakira officially presented him on Twitter, captioning the photo “Les presento a mi sol…” or translated, “I present my sun to you.” Awww…
The two have been seen together since last June, but at first she vehemently denied rumors they were a couple because she was still officially with her boyfriend of 11 years, lawyer Antonio de la Rua, the 37-year-old son of the former Argentinian Premier. Throughout their relationship there were rumors that Rua was a big cheating cheater who cheats.
Why would anyone cheat on Shakira?
Well, it looks like Rua got a little of his own medicine, because Shakira officially called it quits with him in January, and is now all cute and cuddly with Pique, 10-years her junior.
Ex-boyfriend Rua just happens to be [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Shakira[/lastfm]’s agent and insists that their breakup is temporary, stating “We move forward together as partners, developing projects together, working hand in hand and in close communication.”
Uh-huh, just one big, happy, hand-holding family.
