Barcelona defender Gerard Pique's celebrated wife Shakira will skip his teammate Lionel Messi's wedding due to a long-term feud. According to The Sun, the 40-year-old singer was asked to be a guest for the star striker's wedding with long-time partner Antonella Roccuzzo on June 24.

Reportedly, Pique too won't be attending the wedding due to his wife's personal problems.

A source in Spain said: “Shakira declined the invitation, claiming scheduling difficulties. The disagreements between both seem insurmountable.”

Roccuzzo and Shakira have always disliked each other. The former was friends with Pique's previous girlfriend Nuria Tomás, before he started dating Shakira in 2010. Messi's fiancée too has showed her dislike for the Colombian star when she did not publicly acknowledge her birthday on social media last month.

Thankfully, the issue between their wives has not affected the relationship of both Pique and Messi.
