Lionel Messi’s wife responds to Shakira ‘betrayal’ post after Gerard Pique split

Lionel Messi's wife Antonela Roccuzzo has come out in support of Shakira following her high-profile split from Gerard Pique – Messi's former Barcelona team-mate.

Colombian popstar Shakira shared a candid message with her fans on Instagram as she welcomed in the new year, taking a thinly-veiled swipe at her former partner by referencing "betrayal" and "heartache".

"Even if our wounds are still open in this new year, time has a surgeon’s hands," the Hips Don't Lie singer wrote. "Even if someone’s betrayed us, we must continue to trust others."
