    Shakira talked about how her friends supported her through her separation from Pique, something that certainly helped her get through the grief more easily. Among other friends who checked in with kind words, the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ crooner talked about how Chris Martin comforted her during this tough time.

    Martin sent her a picture of a shattered glass put together by glue, referencing the Japanese art as he wrote, “Kintsugi — you’re going to be so much stronger once this is over. That’s the ­metaphor. That you break, and then you get fixed with gold, and you’re more beautiful than you were before. For anyone going through a hard time, me included at times, that’s a really powerful thing to hold on to.”

    She continued talking about the impact this little message had on her overall, and how it helped her get through. As of now, she has returned to music and is stronger than ever.

    Shakira dubbed her separation from Pique as the hardest time of her life, saying, “The suffering I felt was probably the greatest I had ever experienced in my entire life, and it kept me from functioning at times.”

    “It felt like someone had stabbed a hole in my chest,” she continued. “And the sensation was so real, almost physical. I physically felt like I had a hole in my chest and that people could see through me.”

    The couple separated in 2022 amidst Pique’s infidelity, though the couple never revealed the reason publicly. As of now, Shakira is dating British actor Lucien Laviscount who she has an age gap of 16 years with.
