These aren't easy days for Colombian pop star Shakira. The separation with the historical former partner Gerard Piqué and the rumors coming from Spain of an old alleged secret love story with Rafael Nadal, are definitely making the singer have a difficult time.
But now other sensational revelations arrive: Shakira would have a love child! Last week, Colombian actor Santiago Alarcón released an Instagram video in which he said he was molested by a young man who claims to be the son of him and Shakira.
He said: "I am a victim of harassment and extortion by a young man whose name I will leave out on the recommendation of the lawyer, but we will call him boy. He says I gave him up for adoption in 1992, but I was 12 years old then!
You will not believe me and I am ashamed to name her, but I have to name her so that you can see the absurdity of the story, as she claims that her biological mother is Shakira. Imagine how far this has come. my safety, my children's safety, my family's safety, my job has already been hacked."
In 1992 Shakira was only 15 years old. The boy asks for 835 million pesos which translates into approximately $ 41,975,575.25 US dollars, while the boy claims he has been put up for adoption.
