Spanish officials file tax evasion charges against Shakira
Shakira says it’s a shakedown — but Spanish authorities claim the superstar singer owes $16 million in back taxes.
The Colombian crooner was formally charged with tax evasion on Friday, the Associated Press reported.
Prosecutors claim the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer was less than truthful about her residency in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and racked up the massive unpaid bill.
They claim Shakira listed the Bahamas as her legal residence those years but was in fact living in Spain with her partner, the FC Barcelona soccer player Gerard Piqué.
She and Piqué met in Madrid in 2010 during preparations for the World Cup and were photographed together in Barcelona in 2011. The first of their two sons was born in a Barcelona hospital in 2013.
Tax rates are much lower in the Bahamas than in Spain.
Shakira, 41, said in a statement issued by her representatives Friday that she was not a Spanish resident prior to 2015.
She said Spanish tax authorities are using her as a “scapegoat” to scare other taxpayers into paying their bills. – Source
