The Colombian singer Shakira, 44 years old and who decided to start a family with the Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, bought several years ago a very nice house on the Caribbean island of Bahamas, where he came to live for certain periods of time in the company of Antonio de la Rúa, his ex.
“I spend most of my time here when I’m not traveling, it’s like my refuge. It is a very beautiful place because, the truth, the Bahamians are divine, super relaxed and calm. I am from the Caribbean and I feel happy in the Caribbean ”, he shared in an interview he had, at the time, with Argentine journalist Susana Giménez.
The property was bought by the Barranquilla-born and the Argentine businessman, as she herself revealed, due to the great connection she had with the island, where she used to travel to record her albums, so she chose to have her own. own roof and thus forget forever about staying in a hotel.
“I started recording here, in a legendary recording studio, where I used to record Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Cure, my favorite bands. So I wanted to do some research and I came to the Bahamas to record several of my albums and with each new album I would return, until one day we decided to buy a house here and settle down ”, commented the ‘Waka Waka’ interpreter in the same interview.
In addition to opening the doors of her home to Susana Giménez, Sasha and Milan’s mother also did it with the MTV Cribs cameras, to which she showed them even the recording studio that she had installed in the highest part of her house.
The two-story house had a hall, kitchen, dining room, living room, main room, and the aforementioned recording studio, where Shakira kept some of her guitars, her console, and her keyboards. There he also had a living room and a desk for his computer.
His studio had everything necessary for inspiration to come to his mind, as it was not only adapted and totally isolated, but also had a window from which he could appreciate the turquoise color of the Caribbean Sea.
In addition to having lived in the Bahamas, where she even had a private island, Shakira has also lived in her native country, in the United States and in Spain, which is where she currently resides and where she faces problems with justice for a alleged tax evasion that would amount to € 14.5 million euros, something like $ 17 million dollars, but that she categorically denies, then, she assures, that between 2012 and 2014 she did not live in the Iberian Peninsula, but in the Caribbean.
Shakira and Antonio de la Rúa began their relationship in 2000, however, in 2010 they decided to separate by mutual agreement.
