Spanish international Gerard Pique has made the first official comment since his split with music star Shakira was officially announced on July 4. Recently, it is alleged that the defender has a relationship with Clara Chia Marti, who is an employee of his company.
“On July 4, Shakira and Gerard Pique confirmed their separation in a joint statement. Many rumors and alleged unverified information about the player, his family and personal life were published. These rumors and photos cause not only damage to his honor and image, but are also a serious attack on the rights of his children, whose safety and protection are his greatest concern,” Pique’s lawyers wrote in the official statement.
“Our client is forced to change his daily life in order to protect his children and his immediate environment. Gerard Pique has always respected the activities of the media and their right to information. He is fully aware of the fundamental role they play in society. However, in recent weeks there have been interventions that go beyond the limits of legality. Therefore, our client was forced to request precautionary measures and take legal action,” the announcement further states.
