The ever-talented Shakira is making headlines not just for her musical comeback but also for her flourishing love life. Following an 11-year relationship with Gerard Piqué that ended amidst rumors of infidelity, the songstress has reportedly found companionship in NBA player Jimmy Butler.
Sources close to the couple have shared with Us Weekly that their connection is deepening each day. Despite the recent romance, Shakira is taking things at her own pace and isn’t in a rush to settle down. With a focus on her children and career as her top priorities, the singer remains optimistic about rediscovering love.

Butler, who plays for the Miami Heat, and Shakira were spotted in July at Novikov Restaurant & Bar in London, exuding coziness during what appeared to be a dinner date, according to Entertainment Tonight. By August, insiders revealed to Us Weekly that their relationship was steadily progressing, with Butler taking the lead and actively pursuing Shakira. The source emphasized how Butler’s proactive approach, from making plans to expressing his interest, has resonated with Shakira, making her feel truly valued.
As speculation swirls around Shakira’s love life, one thing is clear – the artist is embracing this new chapter with optimism and a genuine smile, thanks to her growing connection with Jimmy Butler.
