Following her return, the artist took a moment to thank everyone for their "prayers, love, and support" -- and especially the North Bergen Police Department for bringing her home safe.
Sharing a picture alongside the NYPD, Miz Quigley penned:
PHEW! Thank goodness it was all a joke!
Well, apparently that’s not the case at all!
Shakira took to her Facebook to explain why it was all a joke, saying:
“Hey guys - I recently said in some interviews that my man could be territorial. For the record, I was being humorous and now I see that some press took it very literally! The reality is that we have a beautiful relationship of mutual trust, and jealousy has never been an issue on either side. Next time I promise, I'll be more careful when attempting to use my sense of humor, as clearly it can be easily misinterpreted!”
Praise the pop music gods because Shaki doesn’t need a man in her videos, but it could restrict her creativity… and her hips!
