Shakira worried as father hospitalised again

Shakira has had a lot to deal with recently and the Colombian singer

is going through a tough period in her life, perhaps one of the toughest to date.

On top of life's daily rigours and caring for her two young children,

Shakira is in the midst of a difficult split with long-term partner Gerard Pique.

As if that wasn't enough, her father's health has become a major concern.

William Mebarak, 90, was taken in to the Teknon hospital in Barcelona

several weeks ago after a fall, but was later given the all-clear. Now,

though, Shakira's father has had to return to hospital.
