Shakira And Boyfriend Split After 11 Years
Look out boys, Shakira is single again!
The Colombian singer, 33, posted on her blog on Monday that she and Antonio de la Rue, her boyfriend of 11 years, have called it quits.
"Since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship," she wrote. "Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now."
The hip shaking singer hinted that there could be a reconciliation. She indicated on her blog that the separation is temporary while they try to grow as individuals although they will remain business and professional partners.
A source close to the couple indicated that there was no "big drama, it's just one of those things where they had been together a long time and realized they were more friends and business partners than lovers. It's sad, but they could get back together.
"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," she wrote. "Our friendship and understanding of one another is unwavering and indestructible."
Gossip Pearls take? No reconciliation.
We will probably hear soon of one of them seeing someone else. Let's see how long it takes.
