Shakira has confessed she doesn't think she'll ever fall in love again, after splitting with her partner of 11 years.

The singer, 47, broke up with footballer Gerard Pique, who is the father of her two young children, in June 2022.

"I thought love would be there for ever for me, and that's one of my broken dreams," she said on Zane Lowe's Apple Music 1 show. "I don't know if I'd like to find that again. Probably not."

She told how she now relies on her friends and family for support. "I've always been in a couple, but then when that wasn't there, and when I had to face the darkest moments of my life, friends were there and kept me together. I might not grow old with a partner, but I will grow old surrounded by good friends."

Shakira's new album, Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran (Women No Longer Cry) has been dubbed her "revenge album."

In one song she sings the lyrics, "This is for me to mortify you, chew and swallow so it doesn't sting, I won't return to you anymore even if you cry or beg me. I understood that it's not my fault that they criticise you, I only make music, sorry that I splashed you."

Gerard, 37, is now dating model girlfriend Clara Chia Marti, 25.
