Shakira Now Dating 33 years Jimmy Butler, Age Gap Doesn’t Bother Her

Iconic singer Shakira and Miami Heat player Jimmy Butler are dating and reportedly taking it slow as they continue to go out on dates.

“They have been out a few times, but things are very new and it’s too early to tell if there’s long-term potential there,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly.

The source added that their 13-year age difference “doesn’t bother” Shakira, 46, “whatsoever.” The source continued, “Jimmy makes Shakira smile, and she feels happy spending time with him.”

Although Shakira’s kids have been longtime fans of the athlete — she shares sons Milan, 9, and Sasha, 7, with ex Gerard Piqué — she and Butler “have only known each other for a short while, and just recently started following each other on social media,” the insider added.


After Shakira shared a video of herself cheering for the Miami Heat at a game in May, Butler “liked” a video of her acoustic performance via Instagram.

Nicknamed “Jimmy Buckets” and “Playoff Jimmy”, he is a six-time NBA All-Star, a five-time All-NBA Team honoree, a five-time NBA All-Defensive Second Team honoree, and an Olympic gold medalist (2016 Summer Olympics).
