Shakira and Pique fought over money, wasn’t it

Shakira's split from Gerard Pique several weeks ago has caused the internet to break almost daily as new theories and reports emerge, the latest of which pertains to money

Until now, there have been many suggestions that the root of their separation may have been infidelity

Specifically on the part of the footballer and allegedly multiple times

New reports suggest that an entirely different aggravating factor may have been involved

According to Spanish journalist Kike Calleja, this factor is economic

Shakira allegedly asked Pique for money for a business investment, which the singer's family flatly rejected, causing friction between the couple

The couple is said to have kept their finances separate and each took responsibility for half of family expenses

They kept up appearances in public even though their relationship has been broken for a long time
