According to El Periodico, Pique was meeting with a young 20-something blonde, who is a student and an event hostess in Barcelona. While her identity has not been revealed the report also claimed Piqué was seen with this woman several times and that Shakira found out about this. The outlet also reports that Shakira and Pique haven’t been seen picking up the kids together for some time.
