AceShowbiz - Shakira's father is home from the hospital. Less than two weeks after her father William Chadid suffered an accident, the "Hips Don't Lie" hitmaker took to social media to assure fans that he is on the mend.
"With my dad discharged, already at home and on the way up, helping him with his cognitive stimulation after the trauma," the 45-year-old pop star said when speaking in a video posted to Instagram on Tuesday, June 8. "Thank you all for wrapping us up with your immense love."
The good news comes just days after the "Whenever, Whenever" songstress had caused concern among her fans after she was spotted getting into an ambulance and took to Instagram at the time to explain.
"Guys, I'm getting a lot of messages of concern that I was seen in an ambulance in Barcelona recently," she said. "I just wanted to let you know that those photos are from last weekend (May 28), when my dad unfortunately had a bad fall and I accompanied him in an ambulance to the hospital where he is recovering now."
News of her father's recovery and discharge from the hospital came just days after it was announced that Shakira had split from longtime partner Gerard Pique, with whom she has sons 9-year-old Milan and 7-year-old Sasha, after over a decade together.
The pair said in a joint statement, "We regret to confirm that we are separating. We ask for privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our maximum priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect."
