We already know (and more than enough) that the relationship between Shakira and Gerard Piqué was never the best, but what is still surprising is that the tension also escalated to the soccer player’s family to the point that some discussions between the singer and her former mother-in-law ended in violence.
Shakira and Piqué’s Mother Had an Alleged Physical Altercation
In social networks, it has been mentioned lately that there are several witnesses close to the Piqué-Mebarak family, who claim that the interpreter of “Te Felicito” was allegedly a victim of physical violence by her former mother-in-law, Dr. Montserrat Bernabeu. According to the reports, on one occasion Shakira was beaten by the woman after a heated argument between the two, which allegedly occurred in front of Gerard and their children.
So far, there is no official information from the singer that this event was true; however, there is evidence of other tense moments between the two women at public events, such as a video taken of them in which Montserrat grabbed Shakira’s face in a very aggressive manner and demanded her to shut up.

What has caused quite a stir among internet users is that just as these rumors about alleged domestic violence appeared, there was also a report that the singer was seen crying in a store in New York, apparently due to all the media pressure she has suffered since her separation from Gerard Piqué. Users on social networks wonder if Shakira’s bitter moment was provoked by the rumors of the alleged mistreatment by her ex-mother-in-law as if she had been reminded of the bitter moments when she read the information about it.
Users Come out to Support Shakira
What is a fact is that this rumor served as a kind of catharsis for several Internet users, as they have shared their own experiences of domestic violence to show their support for the interpreter of “TQG.”
“I feel helpless and outraged to see this woman physically abusing @shakira. What I don’t understand is how Shakira could live with the mistreatment of that sassy witch for so long. Relax, my Shack: she’s one of those women who has an assured place in hell,” commented user @JoannaNasseh on Twitter.
