Last year marked the end of the high-profile relationship between Gerard Pique and music sensation Shakira. Pique, a former FC Barcelona player and both World and Europe champion, is now cultivating a life with 24-year-old Clara Chia Marti. Sparks seem to be flying between his current and former partners, with Spanish media recently disclosing the less-than-flattering names Chia uses to refer to Shakira.

Gerard Pique and Shakira's journey became entwined in 2010 while shooting the music video for "Waka Waka", the World Cup anthem in South Africa. The pair officially confirmed their relationship in March 2011, subsequently having two sons - Milan (9 years old) and Sasha (7 years old). However, by June 2022, news of their separation was making global headlines.

Pique reportedly had an affair with Clara Chia Marti while with Shakira. Marti, a hostess who initially joined Pique's company 'Kosmos' as an intern, is now the woman with whom the footballer has chosen to share his life. This year, the couple settled into a new home just outside of Barcelona.

Spanish media suggests there's palpable tension between Pique's former and current partners. The Spanish show "Socialite" recently exposed how Marti, 24, refers to Shakira, 46. It's safe to say the Colombian singer won't take kindly to these derogatory labels.

Labels like "Witch", "Old woman", and even... "Menopause". These are some of the alleged jabs Pique's new partner uses when discussing Shakira amongst friends.

This is said to be Marti's discreet way of retaliating against Shakira's previous comments about her. Spanish reporters had earlier revealed that Shakira had referred to her as a "mosquita muerta". While this literally translates to "dead fly", the phrase is colloquially used to describe someone who is deceitful and hypocritical.

In August, "Mundo Deportivo" reported on the agreement Pique, 36, reached with Shakira relating to their children. The terms of this agreement mainly revolved around their children's visits. Of interest, is a clause reportedly included at Shakira's behest, that prohibits Marti from being present during Pique's visits with his sons.
