“She Wolf” singer Shakira said she and her son survived a wild boar attack and lived to tell the tale. Which begs the question: Perhaps it was a boar in disguise?
The Grammy-winning international pop star shared the swine story Wednesday on Instagram. She said that she and her 8-year-old son, Milan, recently came across the wild boars at a park in Spain and the animals left with her purse and cell phone.
But the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer managed to snatch them from the angry pigs.
“Look how the two wild boars that attacked me in the park left my bag,” the 44-year-old man said in Spanish, focusing the camera on the damaged accessory. “They were taking my bag into the forest with my phone inside. They have destroyed everything. “
In a satisfied tone, the Colombian-Lebanese singer argued that the unbridled perpetrators left the bag because she confronted them.
Shakira then turned the camera to her son and asked him to corroborate her story: “Tell me how your mom faced the wild boar.”
Milan obediently walked away.
According to the BBC, the vocalist was attacked in a park in Barcelona and is the latest victim of aggressive pigs that have invaded the Catalan capital in recent years. Wild boars are among the most invasive species in the world and can survive in almost any environment, but they are increasingly drawn to urban areas where they live on human waste.
Or delicacies like luxury bags.
Representatives for Shakira, or the wild boars, were not immediately available for comment Thursday.
The viral distraction comes on the heels of a Spanish judge’s July decision to send the singer’s tax evasion case to trial, according to the Associated Press. She denied any wrongdoing when she testified in June 2019 and reportedly returned the $ 16.4 million in taxes she owed.
