Colombian singer Shakira is romantically together with her husband Lucien Laviscount for the first time since her divorce in 2022. He’s 47, she’s 31. Shakira’s inside suspicious of Laviscount’s intentions.

Two weeks ago, the Colombian singer Shakira released the music video for her new single Target. In it, she plays a goddess who shoots desired men from the sky with a bow and arrow and then brings them to treatment. His prey is the 31-year-old British actor Lucien Laviscount, who soon lies in his lap wearing only a loincloth.

This week, Shakira and Laviscount were spotted enjoying a romantic dinner at a New York restaurant. This is (society) news because this is Shakira’s first public appearance with a man since her split from Gerard Piqué. She has two sons with a former Barcelona player.

Sources close to Shakira confirmed, among other things, to a British magazine Daily mail that something blossoms between the two. “But Shakira’s friends say she is not completely over her split with Piqué, but longs for love, while Laviscount may be using her as a stepping stone to international fame.”

Lucien Laviscount is already internationally known, at least among fans of the Netflix series Emily in Paris. In the second season, he appears as Alfie, the boyfriend of Emily (Lilly Collins, daughter of Phil Collins). In an interview New York Times he said he was initially cast in only two episodes. “I was working on a project in New York when my manager called me in a panic: ‘You now need to audition via Zoom for a role in a hit Netflix series. I went online, chatted for a while Emily in Paris-director Darren Star and I were already two days filming in Paris. Apparently they were so pleased that they immediately wrote my character in for seven more episodes.” The character of Alfie also returned in the third season. It is not yet known if Alfie will also be involved in the fourth season.

Lucien Laviscount is the son of a British mother and father from Trinidad. He was found at the age of ten. “I was shopping with my mother in Manchester when a scout from the Marks&Spencer marketing agency asked me to take part in an advertising campaign. Two days later I was going to an M&S commercial where I had the chance to act with David Beckham. Beckham said: “You’re very funny. You need to start making movies.”

Already at the age of 14, Lucien played in the British school league Grange Hill. Then he moved to another school series Waterloo Road. In it, he was a teenager named Jonah Kirby who got into a relationship with a teacher who got her pregnant. When the series ended, Laviscount immediately got to participate in the longest running British series Coronation Street and that was his ticket to the world of cinema. Laviscount played e.g Confidence in One night in Istanbul.

At the age of 19, he participated in a reality series Big Brother Celebrity. This led to a relationship with Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona, who was 31 at the time. Laviscount later had relationships with, among others, Kelly Osbourne and Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson. He has no children.
