"Shakira you look beautiful. Life takes care of removing obstacles in our way 😂. You should be thankful for not wasting any more of your time," one admirer expressed, seemingly dissing the professional soccer star — who allegedly cheated on the award-winning artist with his now girlfriend, Clara Chia Martí, 24.

A second supporter added: "Life rewards even when we think it takes us away. CONGRATULATIONS QUEEN WE ARE PROUD OF YOU ❤️👑✨."
