Colombian singer Shakira has been charged with tax evasion again by the Spanish government. Prosecutors in Spain claim Shakira defrauded the state of $7.1 million in 2018 after she allegedly failed to declare millions in advance payments for her El Dorado world tour, among other payments, claim reports.
Shakira was living with then-partner Gerard Pique and their two sons in Barcelona in 2018 and therefore was required to tax her international revenue there, but she is accused of having instead diverted her money to “companies domiciled in countries with low taxation and high opacity.” The investigation was opened in July 2023, but the details have only just been released. The news comes ahead of Shakira going on trial over six separate alleged tax crimes in the Spanish city this November, having been accused of failing to pay $1,53,10,840 in tax between 2012 and 2014.
Earlier this month, the pop star expressed her belief she would be exonerated. She told a magazine, “I am confident that I have enough proof to support my case and that justice will prevail in my favour.”
