Shakira and Butler, a Miami Heat player, initially sparked speculation about their romance in May. This happened when Shakira attended one of his games and posted a video of herself enthusiastically supporting the team. Shortly after, Butler showed his approval by liking one of Shakira's Instagram videos where she was seen singing and playing the guitar.

Two months later, the pair were seen arriving together at the popular London venue, Novikov Restaurant & Bar. At that time, an insider revealed to Us that they had been out together a few times, but their relationship was still in the early stages. The insider also mentioned that Shakira was content and enjoying their time together.

Shakira has entered into a new romance following her separation from longtime partner Gerard Piqué, with whom she has two sons, Milan, aged 10, and Sasha, aged 8. The couple had been together for 12 years before ending their relationship in June 2022.

Just before the announcement of their breakup, rumors began circulating that Piqué, aged 36, was involved in an affair. Both Shakira and Piqué never directly addressed these speculations, but Piqué was later seen displaying public affection with Clara Chia in August 2022. Piqué officially confirmed his relationship with Chia, aged 24, in February.

Earlier this year, Shakira said she was “betrayed” by her ex while her father, William Mebarak Chadid, was hospitalized.

"My father traveled to Barcelona to offer me consolation after I was overwhelmed with sadness due to my separation," she revealed to People en Español in June. "Coincidentally, while attending Milan's first communion in Milan, he suffered a severe accident. It was a time when everything seemed to unravel simultaneously. My personal life was crumbling, and I discovered through the media that I had been betrayed while my father was fighting for his life in the ICU."

After being photographed together at the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix in May, Shakira was briefly linked to Tom Cruise. However, an insider informed Us that their relationship was purely platonic.

"Although Shakira had a delightful time socializing with Tom at F1, she holds no intention of pursuing a romantic relationship with him," revealed the insider. "While she genuinely appreciated his kind demeanor and enjoyed their time together, her current priorities lie in prioritizing her kids and advancing her career. Dating is not a forefront concern for her presently."
