Gerard Pique’s partner Clara Chia Marti has been the recipient of many derogatory comments ever since the couple went public. The 23-year-old has been grilled by journalists and fans online on multiple occasions, and now she has even faced humiliation while walking around in Barcelona.
Hostility towards Clara emerged after rumors of her relationship with the Barcelona legend began to surface. News about their affair coincided with the announcement of Pique and Shakira’s split. And as a result, many fans still believe Pique was cheating on the Columbian singer with Clara.
This revelation led to heavy criticism for the couple, with Clara bearing the brunt of it. The 23-year-old has been ruthlessly ridiculed on social media platforms. And her private life is invaded quite frequently by journalists.
The media have shown almost no respect for the couple’s privacy, which became evident during the latest incident of Clara being hassled in public. The 23-year-old wasn’t just heckled either, as she was also the recipient of a rather cruel remark.
¿Quién es esta periodista que le dice la verdad a Clara Chia? Se merece un premio, gracias por decir la verdad.
Ojalá todos los periodistas al ver a Clara le digan que “NUNCA llegará a los pies de Shakira” y “Shakira es más guapa”. 👏🏼

The incident can be seen in this clip, which displays Pique and Clara walking out of a building and into the streets of Barcelona. The couple is swarmed by the media almost immediately, with cameras and microphones all aimed at them.
The couple made a beeline for their vehicle, yet they were unable to avoid some unpleasant comments. The remark in question can be heard towards the end of the clip, “you will never reach Shakira’s feet, Shakira is prettier.”
Needless to say, the incessant criticism and trolling Clara has received has likely been detrimental to her mental health. And these comments aren’t even the worst of it.
Clara Chia Marti suffered ‘unjustifiable suffering’ because of a journalist
The 23-year-old’s troubles with the media have reached a point where the couple had to get a restraining order against a journalist by the name of Jordi Martin.
Martin spared no opportunity to invade Clara’s personal life, and as a result, she filed a police complaint against him. Following a court trial, it was stated that Martin caused her “unjustifiable suffering”, and now, he cannot come within 20 meters of the PR student.

The couple has chased down the paparazzi multiple times. But Martin is far from the only journalist on Clara’s tail, and her relationship with Pique will likely attract attention for months to come.
