- Is Piqué’s father suing Shakira?
- The Colombian singer supposedly insults him in a new song.
- Did she wish him dead?
Shakira released her new single ‘El Jefe’, a collaboration with the regional Mexican music group, Fuerza Regida.
The song’s lyrics appear to take a jab at Joan Piqué, who is the father of ex-footballer Gerard Piqué.
A line in the Colombian singer’s new single has sparked a lot of controversy on social media.
Following the uproar over the lyrics of ‘El Jefe’, Piqué’s father might consider taking legal action against the Colombian artist.
What does ‘El Jefe’ say?
They say that no evil lasts a hundred years, yet my ex-father-in-law still hasn’t set foot in a grave, sings Shakira.
This line was featured in the song that was released on Wednesday, September 20. To some, this seems like a harsh message aimed at Piqué’s dad.
The lyrics suggest she resents him for still being alive and presumably causing issues for Shakira.
Shakira has yet to confirm or deny if the lyrics were intended as a dig at her former father-in-law.
Is Piqué’s father suing Shakira?
According to the Mamarazzis of El Periódico de Catalunya, Joan Piqué’s father’s lawyers are considering legal action.
This comes in response to the perceived slight by the Colombian singer in her recent song.
Journalists Laura Fa and Lorena Vázquez have reached out to Piqué’s «inner circle» for comments and have gleaned some insights.
They found that his father’s lawyers have inquired if he’s interested in pursuing a lawsuit.
Joan Piqué could sue Shakira
In an article published on Friday, September 22, the reporters stated that Joan Piqué’s lawyers «are awaiting a response.»
The journalists wondered whether «the disagreement will transition from the realm of music to the courts.»
As of now, Piqué’s dad has not issued any official statement regarding the supposed reference Shakira made about him in her new track.
Furthermore, Shakira’s latest song is stirring up controversy because there are claims suggesting that the track is actually aimed at Lili Melgar.
Piqué didn’t pay their nanny
Lili Melgar didn’t just take care of Shakira’s children; she also informed the Colombian singer when an unfamiliar visitor was at her house.
Consequently, she told Shakira that she suspected the now-retired footballer might have been cheating on her.
Marco Antonio Molina, Lili Melgar’s husband, was interviewed on Bolivian television following the recent buzz surrounding his wife’s name.
In the interview, he confirmed that the former Piqué didn’t pay her after firing her as his children’s nanny.
Did Shakira get along with Piqué’s dad?
Joan Piqué, Gerard Piqué’s father, is reportedly managing the company Inversiones BCN Two & Two SL.
This company owns the mansion in which Shakira lived with her children and Gerard Piqué before their split.
Reports indicate that Joan Piqué sent an email requesting Shakira to leave the residence in Barcelona.
This request eventually led her to move to Miami with her children.
Joan and Gerard allegedly wanted money from Shakira
It’s rumored that the relationship between Shakira and Piqué’s family was always strained.
According to Milenio, both Joan and Gerard were said to be keen on getting money from Shakira.
They were even accused of trying to capitalize on her profits.
Such financial tension and disagreements might have been pivotal in Shakira’s decision to leave the residence and relocate to Miami.
