Aside from performing her own songs, looks like Shakira may want to add Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” to her playlist. After all, her man didn’t put a ring on it. Shakira’s officially a single woman after breaking up with her beau of 11 years, Antonio de la Rua.
In her website, Shakira explains their mutual decision to break up. “During our almost 11 years together we have loved each other deeply, taken care of each other and stood by one another….However, since August 2010 we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship.” Hard to believe they were able to keep this under wraps since the summer!
Just like fleeting romances, so too, may be this break up. Shakira adds, “We view this period of separation as temporary and as a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives.”
