Lewis Hamilton’s advances cooled down by Shakira for family-centric reason following split with Gerard Pique

Lewis Hamilton has little hope of capturing a record eighth world championship this season, at least that is the general perception, with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez setting the pace in a dominant Red Bull performance so far.

However, things have not gone much better for the Mercedes driver off the track either, with his rumoured interest in singer Shakira also seemingly going unreciprocated.

The ‘Waka Waka’ singer is still shaken following her split with footballer Gerard Pique, but was seen on outings with both Hamilton and Hollywood star Tom Cruise recently.

It put the rumour mills on overtime as speculation was rife that she was looking for a quick turnaround following a messy split with Pique.

However, a good friend and former producer of the artist explained why she is not looking for any romantic relationships at this point of time.

While things have been far from smooth on the personal front for the iconic singer, Shakira has also been making headlines for the right reasons, having been awarded Billboard’s Woman of the Year award at the inaugural Latin Women in Music gala.

In the speech following her award, she spoke about the pain she has been going through in the aftermath of Pique cheating on her.

She was then seen with both Tom Cruise and Lewis Hamilton on separate occasions. She hinted toward the pain inflicted by the split with Gerard Pique in her speech.

Cruise had reportedly sent her flowers ahead of the Miami GP, where the two caught up, but her friend has confirmed that any sort of romantic angle between the two is purely a fabrication of the press and that they are “just friend”.

Meanwhile, she was also seen having dinner with Hamilton at a restaurant and then later on a boat with the Stevenage-born driver.

Shakira’s friend Emilio Estefan said: “When friends are in Miami, they get together. The press wants to create a romance, but she is focused on her family.”

Judging by these comments, it seems pretty clear that Shakira will take her time before jumping into the next relationship as the entire situation has rattled her family.
