Shakira isn’t too enthusiastic about spreading the love following her break-up with ex-partner Gerard Piqué.

In a new interview, the Hips Don’t Lie singer, 47, finally addressed rumours that she caught the soccer player, 37, cheating on her via a jam jar.

When the Sunday Times asked if the jam-packed talk was valid, she said: “Not true.”

In 2022, Shakira and Piqué announced their split after 11 years together. The exes have two sons together: Milan, 11, and Sasha, 9. “For a long time I put my career on hold, to be next to Gerard, so he could play football,” she added to the outlet.

“There was a lot of sacrifice for love.”

In January 2023, reports claimed that a container of fruit jelly made the Colombian singer suspicious of the athlete’s alleged infidelity.

ShowNews. Today said at the time that Shakira came home one evening to find an empty jar of jam — something no one in her family enjoys.

The lost spread caused the “Whenever, Wherever” musician to believe that someone else had been in her home.

Shakira and Piqué first crossed paths on the set of the music video for her song “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa”) in 2010.

Six months after announcing their break-up, the sports star revealed his relationship with Clara Chía Martí, rumoured to be the woman he cheated on Shakira with.

Meanwhile, the “Oral Fixation” singer was linked to Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton this past June.

Shakira appeared to slam the new couple in her songs “TQG” and “BZRP Music Session #53,” which dropped last year.

Elsewhere in her chat with the Sunday Times, Shakira opened up about her new Spanish-language album, “Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran,” which translates to “Women No Longer Cry,” due Friday.

The record’s themes encompass “the transformation of pain into creativity, frustration into productivity, anger into passion, vulnerability into resilience,” the superstar said.

“There were so many pieces of my life that crumbled in front of my eyes and I had to rebuild myself in a way, picking up the bones from the floor and putting them all together,” she explained. “And the glue that kept it all together was music.”

“It helped me exorcise a lot of the demons that were tormenting me,” the Grammy winner said, adding that it felt “good” to write about her break-up.
