Spaniard Gerard Pique is experiencing a tense period after his level with his club Barcelona last season, and his separation from his girlfriend, the famous Colombian singer, Shakira, in the past weeks.

A report carried by the Spanish newspaper “Marca” indicated that the Spanish international is experiencing a period of anger and tension that overshadowed his behavior with the media, as he attacked photographers while trying to take pictures of him.

Journalist Jordi Martin from the Maria Patiño program had dared to ask Barcelona star Pique to announce the separation from Shakira, which caused hundreds of news to be published about them.

The program presented by Maria Patiño revealed that Pique, according to her words, was not appropriate in dealing with the press that pursued him, and that he may not have a happy time at all at the present time.

According to the “Socialité” program, Pique broke the mobile phone of photographer Jordi Martin, while journalists were photographing the player.

Speaking to Socialité, Jordi Martin said: “He threw my cell phone on the ground and ran away in the car, crossing the red light.”

Barcelona had asked Pique to focus on football and stay away from his personal problems and his own business, otherwise he would not be welcome within the Catalan team.

Shakira is also not having a good period, in recent days, as the singer was forced to contact the Catalan police after two fans wrote some words on the walls of her home.

The report indicated that the police managed to arrest one of the accused of harassing the Colombian artist, but he was released for lack of convincing evidence.


Johnny Depp to direct his first film in 25 years with Al Pacino co-producing

Actor Johnny Depp will go behind the camera again after 25 years to direct Modigliani, about Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani.

Based on a play, the movie will also see Depp co-produce alongside actor Al Pacino and seasoned producer Barry Navidi.

“The saga of Mr. Modigliani’s life is one that I’m incredibly honoured, and truly humbled, to bring to the screen,” said Depp, 59, to entertainment portal The Hollywood Reporter. “It was a life of great hardship, but eventual triumph; a universally human story all viewers can identify with.”

While best known as an actor in movies such as the Pirates Of The Caribbean and Fantastic Beasts franchises, Depp is also a seasoned producer with 10 films under his belt.

In a statement emailed to The Hollywood Reporter, Pacino said he and Depp had been involved in this project for a number of years and it will start principal photography in spring 2023.

In his directorial debut in 1997, Depp directed both himself and Marlon Brando in The Brave. In the critically panned film, Depp plays a Native American man who is paid a large sum of money to star in a snuff film directed by Brando’s character.

Besides the upcoming Modigliani biopic, Depp is also playing King Louis XV in French movie Jeanne Du Barry, which started shooting in late July.

It will be Depp’s first feature in three years after the conclusion of his high-profile defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, in June, which he won.
