Shortly after confirming her split from Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique, Columbian music star, Shakira has revealed the truth behind the ambulance photos circulating on social media.
Some sections of the media had reported that the singer had reportedly suffered an anxiety attack and had to be rushed to a hospital in an ambulance.
She described the reports as a lie and went on to explain that she was in the ambulance accompanying her father, who had a bad fall.
“Guys, I’m getting a lot of messages of concern that I was seen in an ambulance in Barcelona recently,” Shakira wrote. “I just wanted to let you know that those photos are from that weekend (the 28th), when my dad unfortunately had a bad fall and I accompanied him in an ambulance to the hospital where he is recovering now.
“Please do send all your best wishes his way and thank you all as always for all of your love & support.”
Pique and Shakira started dating in 2011, one year after meeting at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
