The Colombian singer recently had to explain that her boyfriend isn’t the jealous kind of guy, following several statements she made in an interview.
“Hey guys – I recently said in some interviews that my man could be territorial. For the record, I was being humorous and now I see that some press took it very literally!” she wrote in a Facebook message on Thursday. “The reality is that we have a beautiful relationship of mutual trust, and jealousy has never been an issue on either side.”
“Next time I promise, I’ll be more careful when attempting to use my sense of humor, as clearly it can be easily misinterpreted!” she added.
Shakira spoke about her partner last month in an interview with Billboard magazine.
“He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women,” she said. “It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to.”
“It’s out of the question—which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna.”
