Shakira has car trouble in the carpark of the hospital where her father is being treated

Shakira has had a lot to deal with recently and the Colombian singer is going through a tough period in her life, perhaps one of the toughest to date.

On top of life’s daily rigours and caring for her two young children, Shakira is in the midst of a difficult split with long-term partner Gerard Pique. As if that wasn’t enough, her father’s health has become a major concern.

William Mebarak, 90, was taken in to the Teknon hospital in Barcelona several weeks ago after a fall, but was later given the all-clear. Now, though, Shakira‘s father has had to return to hospital.

A sad-eyed Shakira was photographed outside the hospital as she took her father in, where, to top it all off, she discovered she had a flat tyre as well.

The singer’s father has always been hugely important to her and his health struggles are coming at a time when she would probably like to lean on him more than ever.

Meanwhile, rumours have been circulating as to the Colombian star’s future now that her relationship with Pique is over.

There have been suggestions that Shakira may leave Barcelona, but, with children involved, that may be a contentious issue.
