Shakira just released a song titled "Out of Your League," exposing her ex Gerard Pique's infidelity – and her mother-in-law appears to be on the singer's side after she got caught liking a tweet that called her own son a "douchebag."

Shakira (45) and Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué (35) spent 12 long years with each other and even welcomed two sons during their relationship. But in the summer of 2022, the iconic couple finally called it quits – for good reasons. According to the TV program El Gordo y la Flaca, the "Hips Don't Lie" singer hired a private investigator to spy on Gerard, and he was caught multiple times with a 22-year-old hostess – alleged to be Clara Chia – who worked at a nightclub he frequented.

"Shakira didn't want the news to come out. Gerard is the one who forced it to come out," explained an insider on the show, referring to how the detectives "betrayed" Shakira by handing out the information to media outlets. "As soon as the girl came out, I started to find out who she was. She's 22 years old, and they tell me she's a hostess at night in a nightclub that Pique frequents a lot," he explained.

Gerard’s Mom Liked Tweets That Criticized His Actions 

Ever since the news came out, Shakira's fans have taken to social media to defend her and shame the athlete. It seems Gerard has even disappointed his own mom, Montserrat Bernabeu. Shakira's mom-in-law was actually spotted by fans liking tweets that condemned her own son's actions. She liked a post about Shakira’s new diss track for Gerard and his new girl. 

In a rough translation, another one of the tweets that Montserrat liked said, "Sorry, but he destroyed his image on his own. If he is a douchebag, that's no one's fault, only his. His career ended because he is cocky, and he thought that everyone was going to praise his cockiness. Don't blame someone else for the evil that accompanies him. Maybe he fell in love [with another girl], but I can't excuse his actions." 

“Out of Your League” Breaks Records on YouTube 

As heartbreaking as the split is, it only made Shakira stronger. The Colombian beauty even released a new song titled "Out of Your League," a revenge track about Gerard downgrading. In the jam, Shakira refers to herself as a “Rolex,” and (presumably) Clara Chia as a “Casio” watch: “I’m worth two of 22 [year old] / You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo / You traded a Rolex for a Casio.”

The song was released four days ago, and it already has 126 million views, making it the most-watched new Latin song in 24 hours on YouTube, a win that Shakira undoubtedly deserves.

The artist opened up about the breakup in the past and described the ordeal as "incredibly difficult." "It’s hard to talk about it, especially because I’m still going through it, and because I’m in the public eye and because our separation is not like a regular separation," Shakira told Elle back in October 2022. 

When she was asked how her kids have been dealing with the separation, she said, "Yeah. I try to conceal the situation from them as much as I can. It’s really upsetting for two kids who are trying to process their parents’ separation. And sometimes I just feel like this is all a bad dream and that I’m going to wake up at some point."

The "Waka Waka" singer continued, "But no, it’s real. And what’s also real is the disappointment to see something as sacred and as special as I thought was the relationship I had with my kids’ father and see that turned into something vulgarized and cheapened by the media. And all of this while my dad has been in the ICU and I’ve been fighting on different fronts. Like I said, this is probably the darkest hour of my life. But then I think about all those women around the world who are going through hardship, who are going through a situation as bad as mine or as difficult as mine or worse."
