Shakira Realized Ex Allegedly Cheated Due to Jam Jar, Referenced in Music Video with Head in Fridge

Shakira fans believe the singer realized her ex Gerard Pique was cheating on her when she returned to their home from touring to find an empty jar of strawberry jam. She eats strawberry jam, but her husband and kids reportedly do not like it.

The Columbian singer also seemingly referenced the incriminating jam in a music video she released around the time of their split last year that shows the disembodied head of her collaborator on the song “Te Felicito” inside a refrigerator that she opens. 

The jam revelation was reported by ShowNews Today, which pointed out the internet frenzy. 

“The moment Shakira saw that jam bottle as she opened the fridge, she knew it was over for her,” one fan tweeted. Another said, “I found out my ex was cheating from a smoothie receipt in his car. Shakira found out from a jar of jam. I don’t care how crazy we look or sound; when something doesn’t feel right, women will always find out.” 

A rep for Shakira was reluctant to respond to the media for comment.

In the video about a lying ex who was not what he seemed to be, Shakira, who sings about how she “can’t stand two-faced people,” sings, “Your wound didn’t open my skin, but it did open my eyes.” She also opens a fridge to find the head of her collaborator on the song, Rauw Alejandro, which some fans believe is a reference to Pique’s jam.

In an interview with the British show “This Morning” last May, Shakira said she opened the fridge in the video “to find out the truth. So I go to the refrigerator, and it is when I find the head of Rauw Alejandro, which is pretty scary,” she laughed.

Pique reportedly shaded his wife by wearing a Casio and was seen driving a Renault Twingo after the song was released. 

Shakira is also reportedly building a wall around her home to keep out Pique’s mother, who lives near her, according to Marca. She referred to her proximity in “BZRP Music Sessions”, singing, “You left me with your mom as a neighbor.”

The song has topped Spotify’s global playlist and broke a record for YouTube views of a Spanish language love song since being released last week.

The former couple met in 2010 when he was in her music video for “Waka Waka,” the official song of that year’s World Cup. They split up last spring.

    Op-Ed: Has Modern Hip-Hop Really Become More Destructive? Probably not.

    With a current millennial rapper facing down RICO chargers for the content of his lyrics (Young Thug), it seems reasonable that early rap fans would point to their being some credence in indicting lyrical content as being dangerous, offensive, brazen, and influential. And, to be fair, Young Thug’s lyrics are mild compared to some of the content coming from the Chicago and Jacksonville drill scenes, which tend to make fun of dead gang rivals openly, or some of the raw Soundcloud-based music, which tends to be incredibly overt in it’s handling of sexual themes a la Robb Bank$ or the deceased Xxxtentacion.
