It has been revealed that Shakira fired an employee for refusing to heat up a piece of chicken, with this revelation coming as part of a detailed documentary about the Colombian singer.
While the documentary focused on the allegations of tax fraud against Shakira, other details about her private and professional life were reported too.
This was on the TV programme ‘Equipo de Investigacion’ on La Sexta, with Javier Ceriani, a journalist from Miami, interviewing a married couple, former employees of Shakira, who denounced the singer.
One of the most shocking moments was when he recounted the alleged reason why Shakira fired the couple who worked as domestic help for her.
“Divier replaced Maritza, his wife, who cooked all week, cooking for 17 of Shakira‘s employees,” the report stated.
“When it was late at night, he was very tired and Shakira asked him to heat up some chicken, and he told her ‘The truth is I can’t do it anymore, I’m not going to heat up the chicken, I’ve been cooking for 17 people all day, I can’t do it anymore’,
“So Shakira told him ‘If you’re not good for this, you’re not good for anything else’, and that’s when they got fired.
“It was a shock that Shakira fired her staff over a piece of chicken that they didn’t want to heat up.
“They were not only domestic employees, but they were cooks, ‘chauffeurs’ and the ones who arranged the maintenance of the house. It was really a very strong demand.”
Will Shakira and Gerard Pique go to trial?
This accusation comes on top of several other issues Shakira has to deal with. This week, the singer and Gerard Pique met with their lawyers to try to reach an agreement about their divorce, particularly about the custody of their children Milan and Sasha.
There are many rumours that the footballer and the singer will go to court to decide on the custody of their children.
The biggest disagreement between the former couple is that the Colombian singer wants her children to go to Miami with her, while the footballer wants them to stay in Spain, where they go to school.
In spite of this, the footballer could be considering leaving Barcelona and signing for Inter Miami in the MLS to be closer to the children if he finally decides to live in the United States.
