Fame and fortune do not always guarantee that a relationship will last a lifetime. What’s more, nowadays few couples prolong their love affair into old age.
Changing partners after a certain period of time seems to be fashionable among some celebrities who even -unexpectedly- let the world around them know through social networks or through press releases the end of their love cycles.
Those who know something about this are Gerard Piqu and Alex Rodrguez, both sports celebrities who once had the fortune of having two authentic music divas by their side, in reference to Shakira and Jennifer Lpez.
However, the beauty of their partners ended up making the sports idols sick to their stomachs, and perhaps they even secretly set themselves the task of looking for other women who could guarantee them the freshness of a new passion.
Between A-Rod and JLo
Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez, better known simply as Alex Rodriguez, is an American former professional baseball player of Dominican descent who became an idol of the New York Yankees.
In 2002, the baseball player married Cynthia Scurtis, a psychology graduate with whom he had two daughters. However, five years later, a scandal ended their marriage after news surfaced that he had been caught with an exotic dancer at a famous club on the Las Vegas Strip.
From then on, Alex did not regain his sentimental stability until almost a decade later when he officially became the partner of the successful Jennifer Lopez.
For four years everything was honey and sweetness between the two celebrities, but in April 2021, through a statement, both acknowledged that their relationship was broken.
“We have realized that we are better as friends and we hope to remain so,” said a brief message of which much was said, because there was a suspicion that Alex Rodriguez cheated with another woman to the “Diva of the Bronx” and she did not forgive him.
Shakira and Piqu
Although they never got married, the relationship between singer Shakira and soccer player Gerard Piqu Bernabu turned out to be a “fairy tale” that lasted more than a decade.
While they were together the Colombian and the Spaniard even procreated two children, but when they looked better, the media in Spain revealed that the player of the Barcelona Club was leading a double life.
It came to light that Piqu, in addition to having a bachelor apartment, was a regular visitor of a night club where he gave free rein to life accompanied by several women, one of whom ended up stealing his heart to the extent that for several days he had stopped living under the same roof of the family he once had.
So far, the little that is known is that the relationship between Shakira and Piqu is also beyond repair.
