Shakira, the popular pop superstar, is once again facing a legal battle. Prosecutors from Spain allege that this star with excellent songwriting abilities and fabulous voice had committed a tax fraud already in 2018. It was a few million dollars! Let’s take a closer look at Shakira’s legal troubles.
Shakira Charged with Tax Evasion
Shakira, charged with a second tax evasion case, is already focused on a previous tax case’s trial. The first case was in 2012-2014. In fact, the pop star’s legal battles are mounting, but she is pretty confident that the evidence her team has will surely get her out of trouble.
Shakira Tax Issue
Spanish tax authorities state that Shakira’s international income must have been taxed only in Spain. This is because, at that time in 2018, Shakira had her residence in Spain. But she had allegedly found ways to route her income in some companies that were “domiciled” in nations with low taxation. This is one of the recent and most famous celebrity tax evasion cases.
Shakira Legal Troubles
In a recent interview with the Elle magazine, Shakira has said, “I am confident that I have enough proof to support my case…”
Currently, Shakira lives in Miami and the pop queen’s legal team there has stated that it was not aware of the new charges.
