"A little surprised, I asked him again and his response was the same. He wasn't rude, but he was a little bit arrogant," she added, via the Mirror. "I suppose that because he's such a well-known footballer… but I hadn't met him until then. Afterwards I took the photo to post it on my Instagram."

Shakira, meanwhile, has chosen to ignore the drama, and is instead focused on her work. On Wednesday, she shared a series of posts promoting her show, Dancing With Myself, including a GIF that shows her sweetly reacting in one of the acts.
