Shakira didn’t appear to be her usual cheerful self as she was spotted out and about after what has been a challenging time.
The Hips Don’t Lie hitmaker has been dealing with high-pressure situations in her personal life after splitting from longtime boyfriend Gerard Pique, and concerns over her father’s health after he suffered a fall.
So it’s no surprise Shakira, 45, looked a little downbeat when she was seen out in Barcelona, Spain on Tuesday.
She appeared to be alone while driving back to her home in the city and had a strained look on her face.
Earlier in June, the Whenever, Wherever singer announced the end of her 11-year relationship with Barcelona footballer Gerard, 35.
In a joint statement released via Shakira’s publicist, the former couple said: ‘We regret to confirm that we are parting ways.

‘For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect their privacy. Thank you for your understanding.’
Gerard and Shakira met in 2010 while she filmed the video for her iconic World Cup song Waka Waka for the competition in South Africa. The pair never married but stayed together for more than a decade, during which time they welcomed children Milan, nine, and Sasha, seven.
Not long before the announcement, Shakira clarified why she was spotted in an ambulance in Barcelona and revealed her elderly father William Mebarak Chadid had suffered a fall.

‘Guys, I’m getting a lot of messages of concern that I was seen in an ambulance in Barcelona recently,’ she wrote alongside them both together.
‘I just wanted to let you know that those photos are from last weekend, when my dad unfortunately had a bad fall and I accompanied him in an ambulance, where he is recovering now.
She went on to thank fans for their supportive messages, concluding: ‘Please do send all your best wishes his way and thank you, as always, all of you for the love and support.’
The Colombian singer has been keeping herself busy in recent weeks promoting her upcoming series, Dancing With Myself, which will see her as a judge alongside Nick Jonas and Lisa Koshy.
