It was said that she was originally planning to move to the United States from Barcelona earlier this year but her arrival is now expected to take place on April 1. Laura Fa, a journalist who follows the 46-year-old closely, reportedly told Catalan newspaper El Periodico, “What we are being told today is that she has a date planned to move there, which would be April 1. If all goes well, she wants to go on that date.”
Separately, another journalist, Lorena Vasquez, added: “This is the information we receive from the closest circle of the former couple. The only obstacle would be the health of Shakira’s father and it is well documented that his health is a little complicated right now. Shakira’s idea is to take advantage of Spring Break in the United States to be able to travel to Miami with her sons so that they can start their classes when the children there return to class.
