Shakira is accused of tax evasion
Shakira’s troubles escalate in Spanish tax evasion case
Colombia’s pop star Shakira’s troubles in tax evasion are increasing continuously. Prosecutors in Spain said Friday they would ask a court to sentence Colombian pop star Shakira to eight years and two months in prison if convicted during a possible tax evasion trial. Singer is accused of tax evasion on income earned between 2012 and 2014.
Shakira, whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, is accused of failing to pay 1.45 million euros in taxes to the Spanish government between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors said they would also seek a fine of 2.4 million euros. The indictment mentions six charges against Shakira.
Singer rejected a petition presented by prosecutors this week instead of facing trial. Shakira said in her statement through her relatives that ‘she is absolutely sure of her innocence’. So he decided to take the matter to court. However, the date of hearing has not been fixed yet.
Let me tell you, recently Shakira was in the headlines for her personal life. Shakira recently ended her 11-year relationship with FC Barcelona footballer Gerard Pique, with whom she has two children. The singer accused her longtime boyfriend Gerard of having an affair with another woman and cheating on her, which is why Shakira is now living separately from her star footballer boyfriend.
Shakira and Gerard first met during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The two met during the shooting of FIFA World Cup 2010 Official Song Waka-Waka Song, where they became friends and then this friendship happened during the shooting of Pyaar Mein Badal Gayi. Shakira sang this song and also performed on it. Gerard was also a part of this video.
