In a startling turn of events, international pop sensation Shakira is facing her second tax evasion charge, accused of failing to pay a staggering 6.7 million euros (£5.8 million) in taxes on her income for the year 2018. Spanish authorities dropped this bombshell on Tuesday, further deepening the fiscal woes surrounding the Colombian star.
The allegations against Shakira, 46, revolve around her purported use of an offshore company located in a tax haven, which authorities claim was employed to evade her tax obligations. The announcement came in the form of a statement from Barcelona prosecutors.
This second round of tax evasion charges comes as a heavy blow to the “Wherever, Whenever” hitmaker, who has recently relocated from Barcelona to Miami. Shakira had already faced tax evasion accusations in Spain in 2019, but this latest development piles on additional legal troubles.
