Shakira is sparking romance rumors once again — this time with Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton. In May, the 46-year-old singer was spotted on a boat in Miami with the 38-year-old racing driver, per TMZ, and over the weekend, the two reunited in Barcelona after Shakira checked out the Spanish Grand Prix.
On Sunday night, Shakira and Hamilton grabbed dinner with friends to celebrate Hamilton’s second-place finish earlier in the day. Their pal Mustafa the Poet shared a photo of the group on his Instagram Story, which shows Hamilton with his arm wrapped around Shakira’s waist.
Shakira also posted a snap of herself at the race, writing, “Nice to be back in Barcelona!”
Funny enough, just the day before, Hamilton joked that he needed to find himself a “Latina” while talking to his Mercedes teammate George Russell on stage. “You’ve been single for far too long now. We need to find you someone,” Russell told him.
According to a June 8 report from People, the pair are keeping things “fun and flirty.” A source told the publication, “They’re spending time together and in the ‘getting to know you’ stage.” Reps for Shakira and Hamilton did not respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
Since announcing her split from soccer player Gerard Piqué last year, Shakira was also recently linked to actor Tom Cruise after they were seen hanging out at the Miami Grand Prix. However, a source shot down the rumors, telling Us Weekly in a May 10 report that Shakira “has no interest in dating” him. “Shakira had a great time hanging out with Tom at F1, but she has no interest in dating him,” the insider added. “He was really nice and she enjoyed his company, but she isn’t focused on dating him or anybody else at the moment. She has a lot on her plate and is focused on her kids and career for now.”
In October 2022, Hamilton — who previously dated Nicole Scherzinger — revealed that he was single and focusing on his career. “I am not in a relationship, I don’t have kids, my car is my baby,” he told The Independent at the time.
