She had a very romantic few days being shown the sights of beautiful Barcelona by her new man.
But with work commitments on the other side of the world, it was time for Shakira to say 'adios' to the city and her footballer beau Gerard Pique.
The singer was snapped arriving at the city's airport last Friday in the FC Barcelona star's car as she went to catch a flight back to the US.
The couple, who have been dating for about a month, looked glum as they went their separate ways.
And there was no romantic farewell for them as they were faced with the cameras as she climbed out of his car and headed into the terminal.
The day before, she was snapped leaving a beauty salon in the centre of the city where she spent three hours while Pique was at training.
Shakira, 34, had been in the Spanish capital spending time with her footballer as she took a break before resuming her The Sun Comes Out World Tour.
They have been spotted dining out together and she has spent time exploring the sights.
