journalist apologizes to shakira and soccer star

Last week, there was some break up-related drama when soccer star Gerard Pique denied being the cause of Shakira and her BF's split.

Now, Spanish journalist Javier Sarda has stepped forward and apologized for making "false assertions" that he saw Shakira and the soccer star kissing.

Here's what the journalist had to say about it in an open letter which he published last friday:

"I made the mistake of referring to a kiss between Pique and Shakira that may have occurred in a restaurant. The second mistake was the way I said it, which is only justified in the context of an informal chat. What had seemed to me as irrelevant information has since taken on more significance."

In the letter, he also denied witnessing the kiss, and claims that he heard about the kiss from "a source," and "as all sources, [it] may be false."

More from the journalist:

"In my mind, by the way in which I understand my duty as a journalist and because I never want to cause distress to others, I must apologize to Pique and Shakira categorically and openly. I completely regret it."

Given the fact that Gerard himself has said he wasn't an influence in Shakira's break up, we're thinking that this journalist probs doesn't have to worry TOO much…but apologizing for false reporting is certainly the right thing to do.
