USMagazine, Monday, January 10, 2011, 6:09pm (PST)

Shakira's hips don't lie, and neither does her heart.

The Colombian singer, 33, revealed on her blog Monday that she and beau Antonio de la Rue called it quits last summer after 11 years of dating.

"Since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship," she wrote. "Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now."

However, Shakira, who called her romance with the investment banker "the most wonderful years of our lives" hinted that they could reconcile in the future.

"We view this period of separation as temporary and as a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives," she wrote. Adding, "Our friendship and understanding of one another is unwavering and indestructible."
