Justin is a controversial face in the tennis world, after he announced in 2019 that he was resigning from his position of power as a director on the main ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) Board.

At the time, an outcry from influential voices in the sport, including Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka, insisted disgraced Justin and his supporters should be nowhere near the running of the game.

He was sentenced to three years’ probation and 60 hours community service by a Los Angeles judge after a deal was done for him to plead ‘no contest’ over a charge of brutal assault on venture capitalist Randall Kaplan last Halloween night.

Nine days after the 2019 verdict, he accepted that the game is up, travelling to Spain to tell his main ally Novak Djokovic, President of the ATP Player Council, that he was stepping down ahead of the election to the six-person Board taking place on May 14.

He said of the resignation: ‘I’m stepping down because my job is to work on the sport’s behalf and the players’ behalf and in my situation, I’ve become too much of a distraction and a liability…

‘I take responsibility for that, and I take responsibility for the mistakes I made Halloween night.’ 

Shakira’s outing comes after she sparked romance rumours with Lucien by heading out on a dinner dateKerry Katona‘s ex-boyfriend Lucien makes a surprise cameo in Shakira‘s new music video for her latest single, Punteria.

The video dropped in mid-March and fans were surprised to see the Emily In Paris star Lucien, 31, sharing some cosy scenes with the singer, 47.  

Kerry, 43, who met Lucien on Celebrity Big Brother in 2011, previously said their ‘fling’ was ‘just a bit of fun’. 

In the music video, which also stars Cardi B, Lucien showed off his ripped physique as he went shirtless to play a centaur who was hit by Shakira’s arrow.

Lucien’s character was then dragged into a hall occupied by the singers and their followers and Shakira cleaned off his wound while suggestively running her hands over his body.

Shakira went on to change into a pink cut-out bodysuit while performing with several backup singers following the conclusion of the song’s second chorus.

The singer then donned a pink dress and was joined by a healed Laviscount as she sat in the middle of a giant flower, in which the two caressed each other.

Cardi B kicked off the song’s final chorus by singing her lines while cleaning and feeding several of the other centaurs.

Shakira concluded the video by shooting an arrow into the distance, sending the group of centaurs back into space. 

Prior to meeting Shakira and after his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, Waterloo Road star Lucien went on to play main character Emily’s love interest in hit Netflix drama Emily In Paris.

The Burnley-born actor, whose first role was as a child model for Marks & Spencer when he was ten, is deemed to be the perfect age to play Bond and is among the names tipped to take over from Daniel Craig

Shakira and Cardi B, meanwhile, recently spoke about working on the track during an interview with Billboard, and the Me Gusta singer revealed that she had planned on contacting the rapper to set up a potential collaboration.

‘We were always discussing internally if it was a good idea to put someone on this song. I always pictured Cardi on this song. I reached out, and here we are,’ she said.

Cardi B admitted that she had been hoping to be able to collaborate with Shakira for an extended period of time.

‘I knew this day would come. It came…I don’t care if she wants me to meow — I’m doing it. I cannot wait. Seriously, that is my dream,’ she stated.
