Shakira sparks outrage after singer skips 90-minute queue for Halloween attraction
'The attitude is what horrifies all the attendees, everyone was outraged,' claimed a witness
BARCELONA, SPAIN: Shakira is in hot water with Spanish fans as she seemingly skipped a long queue for a popular Halloween attraction in Barcelona. Several Spanish media outlets have reported that the 45-year-old attended the family-friendly event this week with her children, some friends, and her friends' children.
The group was immediately whisked to the front of the line and brought inside, much to the anger of those waiting in the queue for up to 90 minutes to be allowed inside. The 'Hips Don't Lie' singer is now under fire for reportedly skipping the line, according to Radar.
According to eyewitnesses, the singer made the situation worse with her attitude and sense of entitlement. "They began to separate everyone, and Shakira appeared with her children and two security agents and they sneaked in," one witness explained to Socialité. "Despite people crying out, Shakira didn't flinch. The organization said that they let in whoever they wanted. The attitude is what horrifies all the attendees. Everyone was outraged, because it is a very cr**py image," the person added.
The singer also recently shared a video of herself wearing several Halloween costumes on her Instagram feed, consisting of 76.9 million followers. She posted a series of photographs, including one of her as Wonder Woman, another of her as a cheerleader, and a third of her as an angel, with the caption, "The things one does for their kids. In costume all weekend just to see them smile!"
Shakira is also going through a difficult breakup with the father of her two children, Gerard Piqué. They ended their 12-year relationship earlier this year with cheating allegations against the Barcelona defender emerging as the probable reason. According to a source, the relationship between the couple broke up three months prior to their official statement announcing their separation. Shakira reportedly tried to save the relationship, but Pique wanted to make the breakup official a lot earlier. They released a joint statement confirming the split saying, "We regret to confirm that we are separating. We ask for privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our maximum priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect," reported Yahoo Life.
