The bitter break up of Shakira and former Manchester United defender Gerard Pique has been one of the longest running soap operas of recent times in the world of football and music

Former Barcelona and Manchester United defender Gerard Pique has been booed by spectators at an awards ceremony.

The World Cup winner is not in many people’s good books after his messy break-up with pop star Shakira. Pique has seemingly been in the line of fire of his famous ex-girlfriend, who has appeared to have several digs at the Spaniard in her latest songs.

Many of her lyrics have seemingly been aimed in Pique’s direction, with her most ruthless lines also appearing to be saved for his new girlfriend Clara Chia Marti, whom he recently announced as his new partner. However, it appears Shakira still has many fans in Mexico, as Pique was jeered by many of the spectators at the Esland Awards ceremony.

The crowd began to boo and jeer when Pique popped up at the Twitch awards ceremony. It was organised by TheGrefg on Sunday, as a way to celebrate content creators based in Spain and other Spanish speaking nations.

Yet, the most memorable moment was certainly the crowd’s reaction to his face. The events took place in Mexico City but the former defender was able to appear on Twitch from another part of the world.

It is the latest embarrassment for Pique who has repeatedly found himself in the limelight for all of the wrong reasons. Shakira has relentlessly been slating Pique and Marti in her music videos.

Pique and Shakira have been locked in a very tense custody battle over their two sons, but did eventually agree to allow Shakira to move to Miami with their two children Milan and Sasha. While the Colombian would java been very happy with the result, she has still laid into the duo through her latest track ‘Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol 53’.

Some of her lyrics included “I’m worth two 22s. You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo. You traded a Rolex for a Casio.” Pique then responded by driving to his Kings League football tournament in a Twingo, while also agreeing a sponsorship deal with Casio.

Considering the animosity between the former couple, we very much doubt we have heard the last of this situation.
