Henry Cavill opens up about Shakira: Setting the record straight on rumors and romance

The actor was seen following the famous singer on Instagram, leading to speculation about a possible romantic relationship

After the high-profile separation of Colombian pop sensation Shakira and Spanish soccer star Gerard Piqué in 2022, fans turned towards “Superman,” Henry Cavill, as the potential suitor for the singer. Although she has been linked to Tom Cruise, Lewis Hamilton, and most recently, Lucien Laviscount, Shakira’s and Cavill’s history is almost ten years in the making.

The origins of this rumor trace back to a moment in 2015, during the premiere of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” when Cavill and Shakira briefly intersected on the red carpet. A video snippet captured Cavill’s reaction to the commotion surrounding Shakira’s arrival as he paused mid-interview to inquire excitedly, “Is that Shakira?”

The actor was seen following the famous singer on Instagram, leading to speculation about a possible romantic relationship. In this case, despite some fans‘ hopes, the actor’s heart was already taken by Hollywood executive Natalie Viscuso, with whom he was in a public relationship, and Shakira was already in a long-term relationship with Piqué.

Shakira’s life as a single woman

Shakira had great moments with her ex; however, she enjoys being “husband-less” after parting ways with Gerard Piqué over a year ago. This process helped the Colombian star regain her groove and rekindle the relationship with her first love—music.
