Shakira reportedly dated telenovela actor Osvaldo, who was 17 years her senior, for eight months in 1997. Although not much is known about their romance, she admitted they “fell in love,” during her appearance on Show Business. They reportedly lived together for some time and Shakira admitted that her song “Flies in the House” was about him, during an interview.
“It was a very beautiful song that was written for me, among many others that are already public knowledge like ‘You’, ‘Ojos así’, many others; I practically keep them in napkins, because she wrote on airplane napkins, at least when we were together; the muse hit her on the planes,” Osvaldo reportedly said about the songs Shakira wrote about him, in a 2023 interview.
