Shakira and Gerard Pique’s Separation Affected Their Kids In A Surprising Way

Shakira appeared for an interview with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe and spoke about her life after her much-hyped separation from Gerard Pique. The 47-year-old music icon revealed that the split affected her kids but in a different way. While talking about her 11-year-old son Milan, she said-

“So, knew that my songs were a part of that process of healing, a part of that catharsis. They know that this is the, one of my own ways to heal and express myself through my music and they, actually do it sometimes as well. Like Milan, I remember he wrote two beautiful songs during the whole separation process and they would make anyone cry.”

She further continued to say

“He wrote two songs on piano and lyrics, and whenever he feels a little down, he goes to the piano and he writes music and that is also his catharsis therapy. He is a great musician and probably a producer, but he is obsessed with football as he wants to be a soccer player, he’s got that part, but I recognize that he’s really a great songwriter and producer and maybe he will do. He will take it more seriously, but now it’s a channel for him.”

Shakira believes music played a very significant role in Milan’s life during her separation from Gerard Pique. It not only worked as a therapy for her but also for her son too.
