Spanish media reported that Shakira will begin her new life in the United States with her two children by the end of next week, after she began dating a mysterious man in the city.
It emerged last month that the Colombian singer-songwriter, 46, was looking on April 1 to move to Miami with her sons Milan, 10, and Sasha, eight, after her split from the children’s father Gerard Pique, 36.
Respected Spanish showbiz site Vanitatis Shakira said on Friday that those close to her and the paramedics who were caring for her elderly parents would leave Spain permanently by the end of the week.
She stated: ‘A large portion of the singer’s inner circle already knew she was leaving.
“Kids stopped participating in extra-curricular activities like baseball some time ago.”
A new beginning: Spanish media reported that Shakira will start her new life in the United States with her two children by the end of next week, after she began dating a mysterious man.

But good sources say that at the Esplugues de Llobregat near Barcelona where the youngster was training regularly and playing matches, they were told the youngster would not return.
The newspaper also reported that the children would not return to their schools after the Easter break.
MailOnline has contacted Shakira’s reps for comment.
Shakira expert Laura Fa, who is one of two journalists who write regularly about the mother of two in the Catalan newspaper El Predico, said earlier this month that the artist was looking for a new date on April 1 to leave Barcelona with her children, after initial reports about it. It will happen at the end of the school year in June.
That was before her mother, Nydia Ripoll, was hospitalized in the Catalan capital after a blood clot was found in her leg.
The ill health of her 91-year-old father, William Mubarak, was initially cited as the main reason she abandoned plans to move to Miami at the start of the year after signing a child custody agreement with Pique in December.
The couple, who separated last May after 11 years together, confirmed in November that they had reached an agreement after lengthy negotiations that culminated in a 12-hour long meeting with their lawyer. They signed the agreement in a Barcelona court the following month.
As part of the agreement, retired footballer Pique, who is now dating 24-year-old Catalan beauty Clara Xia, will spend time with his children.
It is understood that Shakira’s desire to move to Miami, where she was living with part of her family, was the main sticking point in the former ex-couple’s failure to reach an out-of-court settlement.
Vanitatis says Shakira, her parents and children will all be living together when they get to Miami.

NEW ROMANTIC STORY: Gerrard and new girlfriend Clara Xia, 23, have been on the receiving end of receiving barbs from his ex for the offending songs the Colombian beauty has released since their split last year.
The artist, who has relatives and a number of close friends in Miami, owns a £14 million mansion in the city that she reportedly put up for sale in 2018 before removing it from the market a few months ago.
At the beginning of the week, Spanish media claimed that Shakira may have found love with a new man in Miami — but the singer denied the allegations.
news website Well Diario She said she was told she met the mystery man several months ago before writing her latest song, which is aimed at Pique and his new girlfriend, Clara Xia.
The former Barcelona defender’s relationship with Clara Xia, who just turned 24, came to light shortly after he and Shakira announced their separation.
The singer-songwriter performed her chops with Argentine DJ Bizarrap, firing poison darts at Pique and his new girlfriend, on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show last month. She continued to talk about her breakup with the former soccer player.
Pique said in a later interview with the Spanish newspaper El Pais that he was “very happy” after the dramatic changes in his life, which included the separation from Shakira and his retirement from football.
He also closed out a question about Shakira in the interview but added, “Every parent has a responsibility to try to do the best they can for their children.
It’s about protecting them. This is the work of all parents with their children. This is what I focus on and this is my job as a father.
