Hot Loba Summer: Breaking Down the Chisme on Shakira’s Single Life in Miami
Shakira once sang about letting her inner “She Wolf” out of the closet and it seems like she finally “set it free.”
The singer traded her largely reclusive life in Barcelona with ex-partner Gerard Piqué, for buzzing Miami. She has cited her move to “search for her happiness” alongside her children Milan, 10, and Sasha, 8.
Before crossing the Atlantic, the barranquillera was already setting off alarms with her “revenge” dresses and body. Now in la ciudad del sol, she seems to prep for a hot loba summer — and we have all the chisme on her possible new dating life. Auuu
In Miami, the “Hips Don’t Lie” star recently gave a powerful acceptance speech at Billboard’s Mujeres Latinas en la Música awards, where she was lauded Woman of the Year. She posed with old friends like Thalía and attended Miami’s Formula One Grand Prix alongside stars like Maluma.
Her lifestyle change has been so abrupt that many fans liken Shakira’s old life in Spain to “captivity.” Luckily, her inner loba is out and about — and stars like Tom Cruise are reportedly “very interested” in pursuing her.
Another possible pretendiente? Race car driver Lewis Hamilton. Here’s everything we know!
Fans are freaking out over the Shakira-Tom Cruise dating chisme — could it be true?
Shakira set off new dating rumors when she attended the Miami Grand Prix after her pal Maluma invited her. However, the spicy chisme didn’t focus on Papi Juancho, a known close friend. While Shakira reportedly hung out with the “Hawái” singer and Rauw Alejandro, fans couldn’t get over her conversation at a suite with Cruise.
From a viral video, Shakira and Cruise were spotted chatting on a balcony until her son Milan adorably interrupted them:
While some fans were thankful for Milan stepping in, even telling the 10-year-old “nice work” scaring Cruise off, others went even further. Some hoped Shakira’s pal Alejandro Sanz would swoop in and stop her from dating Cruise, while other fans just kept tweeting, “Get away from her”:
Yep, it’s safe to say fans were not loving the Shakira-Cruise romance possibilities — and it got even worse once the actor reportedly admitted to being “extremely interested” in her. Page Six reported that the “Mission Impossible” actor was deeply taken by the singer after their F1 convo, with a source telling the outlet: “He is extremely interested in pursuing her.”
Additionally, Cruise allegedly sent her flowers after the race. Shakira’s reaction to all of this, though? As per an Us Weekly source, the singer has “no interest in dating” the actor, and the chisme actually makes her laugh. It looks like this will be a mission impossible, Tommy.
“Shakira has seen the online rumors that Tom has been courting her,” the outlet wrote. “And how fans are chiming in with their opinions, but she thinks it’s hilarious because it’s just not true.”
Shakira and Tom Cruise are not a thing — but what about racing driver Lewis Hamilton?
Remember what we said about Shakira living her best single life? That includes hanging out twice with British racing driver Lewis Hamilton in Miami.
The loba may not be interested in dating anyone right now, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be courted. The singer’s outings with Hamilton included a fun restaurant outing and a boat day. Hot girl summer is fast approaching, and we’re here for it. Triple M, indeed.
As reported by El Mundo, Shakira had dinner with Hamilton at the luxe Miami restaurant, Cipriani, on May 8:
Days later, the “Antologia” singer saw Hamilton again while touring around Miami’s Biscayne Bay on a yacht. Photos show Shakira smiling as she hung out with the race car driver and a few other pals:
Of course, there’s a huge chance Hamilton is just a friend, and Shakira’s main focus right now is having fun. Us? So, so here for it. Still, as you can expect, fans are taking the news and running with it — so bring on the memes.
For one, Shakira is very much in her single girl power and we see, observe, and respect it:
Meanwhile, others expressed their love of the Shakira and Hamilton chisme — and their very different reaction to a romance with Cruise:
Most of us, though? We know Shakira is at her “peak” right now and we love to see it:
