Spanish and Latin American outlets are reporting that a sex tape involving singer Shakira and Barcelona star defender Gerard Pique is being shopped.
Rumors about the tape have swirled for weeks — and representatives for Shakira have repeatedly denied its existence, but Spanish magazine Intervieu reports that a Barcelona talent agent was offered the tape for sale.
According to the magazine, the talent agent claims: “The video lasts about 15 minutes….it’s filmed with a cell phone, which I guess, belonged to Shakira’s employee who was at the helm of the boat that night. The images are not steady and it’s out of focus.”
Mexico’s TV Notas also reported that the tape was made by one of Shakira’s employees, who is using it to blackmail the singer.
The woman who famously sang “Hips Don’t Lie” has been the subject of sex tape rumors before. Tapes of her and former beaus Antonia de la Rua and Alejando Sanz purportedly exist, though no images have ever come to light.
Former employees recently sued the Colombian singer in the past, claiming she fired them for failing to prepare her food in the middle of the night. Shakira’s lawyer Ezequiel A. Camerini refuted the claims to Colombia’s newspaper El Espectador.
“There is clear evidence of intentions to defame and cause harm to my client by taking advantage of her public persona and spotless personal reputation in exchange for money.”
HuffPost Voces recently confirmed that Shakira and Pique are expecting a baby in January.
