As reported by the Italian newspaper "Tuttosport", Gerard Pique took steps to bolster security at Shakira's home. The Colombian singer confided in her former partner about her stalker problem. Now, guards protect her property 24/7.

Pique's concern was heightened by the fact his children, born out of his relationship with Shakira, spend time at this property in the United States. The couple was together from 2011 to 2022 and have two children, Milan and Sasha.

Shakira has been dealing with a stalker issue for a while. A 56-year-old man shows up at her property on a regular basis. Moreover, the stalker, whose name is Daniel John Valtier, has been trying to get in touch with the singer by persistently sending her numerous gifts.

Driven to act, the Colombian reported the harassment to the police, leading to the arrest of the American. However, after posting bail, Daniel John Valtier was released from jail.

"Tuttosport" suggests that Pique's assistance in enhancing Shakira's property security signals a truce in the former couple's strained relationship. The public closely followed the tumultuous end of the singer and the former footballer's relationship. After the split, Shakira relocated to Miami, Florida while Pique began a new chapter with his love interest, Clara Chii Martii.
