Shakira said there's a "place in hell reserved for women who don't support other women."

It’s been a rough year for Shakira. Not only does she face tax evasion charges in Spain but she also went through a pretty nasty break-up. Last year, she and Gerard Piqué called it quits after 11 years together. The singer began dating the football player in 2011 following his appearance in the “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” music video, and later, they welcomed a child together. While they were listed among the world's most powerful couple, things eventually went left.

The couple later shared a statement after news emerged of their split. “We regret to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we request respect for (our) privacy. Thank you for your understanding,” the statement read. Though the details surrounding their split remained unclear, she confirmed there was infidelity in the relationship. In fact, Shakira revealed that she knew he was cheating due to a used jam jar. Then, Shakira addressed the matter in her single, “BZRP Music Session #53” along with Bizarrap.

Shakira Disses Ex’s New Girlfriend 

During a recent interview, Shakira didn’t hold back on her thoughts surrounding women who aren’t supportive of other women. Many felt as though she was taking aim at Piqué’s new girlfriend. She explained that she doesn’t need to depend on a man after feeling as though “a woman needed a man to be complete.” “There is a place in hell reserved for women who don’t support other women,” Shakira said during her interview with Enrique Acevedo of Canal Estrellas.

The breakup was clearly an eye-opening experience for Shakira. She felt as though she depended on her partners in the past on an emotional level, though she said that she discovered a new side of herself. “I've always been emotionally quite dependent on men I’ve fallen in love with love and I think I’ve been able to understand that story from another perspective, and today I am sufficient on my own,” she said. Shakira said that her main focus is to take care of and protect her two sons, 10-year-old Milan and 8-year-old Sasha, who she shared with her ex.
