A new accusation of tax fraud falls on Shakira.
The Colombian singer has once again ended up in the crosshairs of the Spanish tax authorities for failing to pay 6.7 million euros in taxes on her earnings in 2018.
According to what was claimed by the Barcelona prosecutor’s office, the 46-year-old used an offshore company based in one of the so-called tax havens in order to evade taxes.
The pop star was notified of the new charges in Miami, where she recently moved after the end of her relationship with Gerard Piqué.
In November, Shakira is expected to go on trial for tax fraud: according to investigators, she evaded as much as 14.5 million euros. If the charges were confirmed, the singer would risk 8 years in prison.
During a recent interview with Elle, Shakira declared that she had ‘paid everything I was owed, even before the accusations’.
‘I am at peace because I have enough evidence to support my innocence and justice will prevail in my favour,’ she added.
Shakira moved to Miami after the end of her long relationship with the former footballer. The couple separated in June 2022 after 11 years together. The two share two children, Milan and Sasha.
