Famous singer, songwriter, and performer Shakira dated, almost to the point of marrying, professional soccer player for FC Barcelona and member of the 2011 Spanish national team Gerard Pique.

He was the chief member of Yankees Wolrd Series in 2009. He was also the highest-paid man in baseball of all time. Together, that is one insanely rich couple. The lovebirds met in 2017 and were engaged by 2019. Sadly, they never followed through with it. These days, Jen is happily married to Ben Affleck.
