Several rumours claim that strawberry jam was the catalyst for the breakup of Latin singer Shakira and her longtime partner Gerard Pique.

In June 2022, they announced their separation after rumours that the latter had cheated on her with Clara Chia Marti.

The Hips Don’t Lie singer reportedly had her doubts about her partner’s faithfulness after seeing strawberry jam gone from the refrigerator when she returned to their family home. She is allegedly the sole household member that consumed this jam. The jam on this occasion served as the dessert, or proof, for the Colombian vocalist.

Shakira and Puerto Rican artist Rauw Alejandro collaborated on the song Te Felicito, which was released as a music video in April 2022. In the clip, Shakira opens a refrigerator door to discover Alejandro’s head surrounded by strawberries and strawberry-related items. Fans at the time conjectured that the scenario gave away the outcome of the truth.

Internet users were inconsolable after learning that strawberry jam had a significant impact on the couple’s breakup drama and flocked to Twitter to share their hilarious reactions.
