Is Barcelona the city of love for Shakira as she moves in to her new house?

by Since her split from her Argentine fiancé of 11 years, Antonio de la Rua, Shakira seems to have embraced all things Barcelona.

The 34-year-old has been repeatedly linked with 24-year-old FC Barcelona player Gerard Pique and the pair fuelled rumours this week by celebrating their shared birthday together.

Gerard looked the picture of happiness as he posed (centre) with the singer before posting this image on Twitter.

And Shakira has now chosen Barcelona as the latest place to call home. In this week’s HELLO! magazine – issue 1161 – we look exclusively behind the doors of the beautiful restored convent she is renting.


In December the Waka Waka singer expressed her desire to live in the Spanish city, saying: “I wish I owned a house here, because I love Barcelona.”

And with two half-sisters living in the country as well as a potential romance with Gerard, it seems Shakira has every reason to want to embrace European life.
