But months after their breakup, several reports have revealed that things weren’t the happiest between them. During her messy split with Pique, her dad was also struggling with his health.

In a recent interview, the Latin American star revealed that William Mebarak was actually in the ICU. She admitted that she thought she wouldn’t be able to survive that amount of stress. Let’s dive deeper.

In this story, we roll back to when Milan received his First Holy Communion. The Colombian icon revealed that her father had a major fall around that same time at home. Along with that, Gerard Pique’s infidelity also surfaced on the internet and social media during that very moment. She told People En Espanol, “Everything happened at once. My home was falling apart”.

“I was finding out through the press that I had been betrayed while my dad was in ICU. I thought I wasn’t going to survive so much”. Shakira continued, “The man I have loved the most in my life, my father, was leaving me when I needed him the most”. Without a doubt, it was an unimaginable period of time for the Hips Don’t Lie singer. She really had no choice but to seemingly face reality all alone.
