Pop icon Shakira and her partner, Gerard Pique, have been together for the best part of a decade at this point. The Barcelona defender is known as one of the greatest soccer players of his time, but what do you know about the man himself?
Shakira referred to Gerard Piqué as her "husband" in a January 2020 Instagram video, but the two aren't actually married. When she sat down with 60 Minutes to promote her Super Bowl halftime show, the "Hips Don't Lie" singer told correspondent Bill Whitaker that she has zero interest in becoming Mrs. Gerard Piqué, saying:
"To tell you the truth, marriage scares the s--- out of me," she said. "I don't want him to see me as the wife."
She went on to explain why.
Before meeting Piqué, the former Voice judge was involved with Argentine entrepreneur Antonio de la Rua, son of the country's former president. They started dating in 2000 and were together for over a decade, but she didn't feel the need to make it official. Speaking to USA Today in 2009, Shakira described herself as being "semi-married" to Rua:
"We function as a married couple. We don't need papers for that."
The songstress is taking a similar approach to her relationship with Piqué, partly because she wants to "keep him on his toes" as the years tick by.
