Shakira has released a new song and it appears to contain some pretty brutal call-outs to her ex Gerard Pique.
The song is called 'Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol 53' and it has only been released in Spanish so far, but some of the lyrics have been translated and they appear to be calling out a certain former Barcelona footballer.
In the song, Shakira sings that she's 'worth two 22s', which has been interpreted as a reference to Clara Chia, a woman Pique was rumoured to be dating in the aftermath of his split from Shakira last year.
The Colombian singer's lyrics slate a certain someone for having 'traded a Ferrari for a Twingo' and 'traded a Rolex for a Casio'.
The mysterious target of Shakira's lyrics is then told they spent a lot of time in the gym but should 'work your brain a little bit too'. Ouch.
Later on in the song, Shakira sings that there are 'no hard feelings' but insists they are never, ever, ever getting back together.
They go: "From love to hate there’s only one step. No hard feelings baby, I wish you the best with my supposed replacement.
"I'm too big for you, that’s why you're with someone just like me. I'm not coming back to you, even if you’re crying or begging."
Pique responded to the apparent call-out by posting a series of circus-related emojis on Twitter, with plenty reckoning that he was commenting on his ex's latest song lyrics.
Shakira said the split from Pique had been 'dark and difficult' after the end of their 11-year relationship, with the couple having two children.
She admitted the situation around her separation from the former Barcelona footballer was 'hard to talk about' both personally and for her children Milan and Sasha.
The couple announced their split last summer and the singer is expected to move to Miami with her children later on this year, with Pique able to see them during holidays as part of a custody agreement signed between the former couple.
Shakira also has other concerns on her plate as she is due to stand trial in Spain over allegations of tax fraud.
She has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax office out of €14.5 million (£12.2 million) between 2012 and 2014, with officials claiming she maintained an official tax residency in the Bahamas until 2015 while they allege she moved to Spain in 2011 when her relationship with Pique went public.
The singer will have to go to court as she has rejected a plea deal, with her legal representatives saying she was 'absolutely certain of her innocence'.
If found guilty she could end up in prison for eight years and be fined up to €24 million (£20.2 million).
