Shakira is ready to move on… And away!
In a statement given to TMZ early Monday morning, the exes revealed they have reached a custody agreement for their two shared sons, Sasha and Milan, noting:
“We have signed a custody agreement. Our sole objective is to provide our children with the utmost security and protection and hope that they can continue with their lives in a safe and calm environment.”
It’s great that it sounds like the two are putting their children first, despite how they may feel about one another… But what exactly does it all mean for their future? Well, according to the same report, following the 12-hour-long custody agreement meeting, Shakira decided she and the kids will be leaving Barcelona — and moving to Miami. A source close to the pop star told the outlet the couple “signed an agreement that is best for the kids — which is their main focus.” But “after 8 years of living in Barcelona,” the mother and sons will now “move back to her longtime home of Miami, where all the maternal family is.”
Wow, that’s quite the distance… We’re just left wondering how that factors into the custody agreement, which hasn’t revealed any sort of time division for the kids between their parents. We mean, the kids will have to keep their passports up to date just to visit their dad. And that’s a 9-hour flight, y’all — not exactly something they can do every alternate weekend, right?
What do you think, Perezcious readers? Is it fair for Shakira to move so far away? Does it make it better considering the split is allegedly Gerard’s fault? Let us know your take in the comments down below!
