"In August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship," she writes. "We have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now."

However, Shakira, who called her romance with the investment banker "the most wonderful years of our lives" hinted that they could reconcile in the future.

"We view this separation as temporary, a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives," she wrote.

"Our friendship and understanding of one another is unwavering and indestructible."

Adds a source, "There was no drama, just one of those things where they had been together a long time, realizing they were more friends and business partners than lovers. It's sad, but they could get back together. They just need a break."

good, she's a skank


As a devoted Shakira fan I would just like to force a decline in rumours.
Shakira is NOT dating any footballer.
Antonio has NOT cheated on Shakira.
This article hits the spot, they are feeling simply more like friends and taking a break to concentrate on their professional careers. They are likely to get back together if they both feel it is right.
They are setting an amazing example that alot of people are too naive to realise.
Thank you.


hope shakira is gonna find another one


Honestly, I would love to believe Shakira is single. That would validate my night time fantasies - but they are ALWAYS together. In Spain they were seen most recently making out (many photos on shakira gallery) and they were most recently in Paris together. How can she say that they broke up in August of last year if they were always together cuddling and kissing. Doesnt make sense.


so sorry shak!but i like the way you handled it. ur a true star
