Shakira Could Face Up to 8 Years in Prison for Tax Fraud

Shakira, who has been accused of tax fraud by the Spanish Tax Agency, has rejected their plea deal. Now the Colombian singer is in hot waters as one of the Spanish prosecutors has asked for more than eight years in prison for the superstar and a fine of more than 23 million euros ($23.51 million) over a 14.5 million euro tax fraud case.

However, neither a representative of the tax agency nor the reps of the singer were available for any comments.

The prosecutors had offered a deal to settle the alleged tax fraud earlier. However, the vocalist rejected the deal. PR firm Llorente y Cuenca, representing Shakira, said in a statement that the 45-year-old “trusts her innocence and chooses to leave the issue in the hands of the law.”

The firm added that Shakira had cleared the amount she is said to owe with the Spanish Tax Agency and has no pending tax debts.

The singer was first prosecuted in 2018, claiming that she had failed to pay 14.5 million euros in taxes on income earned between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors said that Shakira resided in Spain between 2012-14 even though her official residence was in the Bahamas.

Shakira was in a relationship with Spanish footballer Gerard Pique at the time. The couple was together for 11 years before calling it quits earlier this year. The couple, who is also parents to two children, lived in Barcelona for some time.

In a joint statement shared on June 4, Shakira and Gerard said, “We regret to confirm that we are parting ways. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect their privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”
