SHAKIRA refused to take down a witch doll overlooking her former mother-in-law’s home despite her demands for it to be moved, it is reported.

It is understood to overlook her former mother-in-law’s pad in the same street.
Journalist Marc Leirado said the mannequin, with long grey hair and a witch’s hat, had spooked Montserrat.
He said: “Weeks ago, I got some information that Gerard’s mother was worried about an alleged ritual that was done to her with a black witch.”
It appears her request fell on deaf ears, however, as Pique came face to face with the terrifying doll just days ago.
The footballer was seen arriving at his ex’s mansion in the Spanish city in a black Range Rover on Sunday.
The pair have been engaged in a sour falling-out since they parted ways after a 12-year romance.
As well as putting up the witch doll, neighbours reported she also blasted out the new song — BZRP Music Sessions #53 — on repeat so Pique’s mum could hear.
The singer’s explosive song, has left little doubt that she is referring to her former partner and his younger lover.
In the new track, she takes a swipe at Clara’s age with the lyrics: “I’m worth two 22s. You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo, you traded a Rolex for a Casio.”
And Pique responded to the song by turning up to work in an £8,000 Renault Twingo.
It was also reported that Shakira recruited a team of professionals to snoop on her ex before their split last year.
She is said to have hired a private investigator to trail Pique to confirm her suspicions.
The super sleuth spotted the Spaniard frequenting the nightclub where his now girlfriend worked, Marca reports.
It is thought the singer was getting her ducks in a row before the inevitable bitter court showdown over custody of their children and their £12million mansion.
Rumours have also swirled that Shakira first smelt a rat after taking a look in her fridge at their five-storey Barcelona property.
The songstress is said to have returned home from a period of travelling to find a jar of her strawberry jam had been eaten.
It’s been claimed that Pique follows a strict diet and would not have tucked into the jam – and neither would her children.
The She Wolf singer is then said to have come to the conclusion that someone else – more specifically another woman – had been in her home, and her fridge.
