It comes after it was also reported that Shakira has started construction on a wall to separate her home from that of her former mother-in-law’s after her split from Gerard.
Shakira allegedly realised her ex-boyfriend had been unfaithful when she discovered a jar of strawberry jam had been eaten while she was away.
Shakira then went onto reference the strawberry jam in a music video for her single Te Felicito in April, which featured a clip of a head of her collaborator Rauw Alejandro inside an open fridge.
According to ShowNews Today, Shakira knew that Gerard and their two sons Sasha, 10, and Milan, seven, didn’t like strawberry jam, and so she sussed that someone else had been staying at their home when she found the jar.

Shakira returned home from a period of travelling when she noticed the jam in her fridge had been eaten, and she knew the rest of her family disliked it.
The singer appeared to allude to this in the music video for her single Te Felicito, where she can be seen opening a fridge to be greeted by Rauw’s head.
It comes after she set up a terrifying lifesize witch doll on the balcony of her Spanish home which reportedly looks over her former mother in law’s pad.
Residents in the area have reported hearing Shakira ‘blasting the song at full volume’ from her home, which includes lyrics aimed at his new girlfriend.
Shakira, makes it crystal clear she is referring to the 23-year-old her former partner is rumoured to have started dating last year before they split, saying: ‘I’m worth two 22’s. You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo. You traded a Rolex for a Casio.’
While Shakira’s new song features some barbed lyrics aimed at Gerard and his supposed new love Clara Chia Marti, she also includes a few choice words for her ex-mother-in-law.
In the song, she sings the line: ‘You left my mother-in-law as my neighbour, with the press at the door and the debt in the Treasury…’
It has been reported that the relationship between Shakira and Montserrat Bernabéu [Gerard’s mother] has turned sour after she readily welcomed her son’s new romance.
