Shakira Charged With Tax Evasion For Second Time

Shakira’s got some tax troubles😳



Shakira faces a second tax evasion charge in Spain, accused of defrauding the state of €6.7 million (approximately £5.8 million). The Colombian pop sensation, known for hits like “Whenever, Wherever” and “Hips Don’t Lie,” allegedly neglected to pay taxes on her 2018 income, according to Spanish prosecutors. She is already scheduled to stand trial in Barcelona in November, refuting charges of failing to pay €14.5 million (around £12.5 million) in taxes for the years 2012-2014, which could lead to an eight-year prison sentence.

In this new case, it is alleged that Shakira did not report earnings of $12.5 million (£10.2 million) from an advance payment for her El Dorado World Tour, among other sources. During that period, she was in a relationship with football star Gerard Pique and resided in Barcelona with their two children. Prosecutors claim that the artist utilized an offshore company located in a tax haven.

According to their statement, Shakira, who is now 46, was informed of the additional charges while residing in Miami. However, her legal team asserted on Tuesday that she had not received any notification about this new case.
