Shakira To Stand Trial For Tax Fraud In Spain

Shakira Turns Down Prosecutor’s Offer In Tax Fraud Case

Shakira will stand trial for tax fraud in Spain.

On Tuesday (September 27th), a judge ruled that the pop star will be tried for allegedly failing to pay $13.9 million in taxes on income that she earned between 2012 and 2014.

The New York Post reports that prosecutors seek and eight years prison sentence and a stiff fine for the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer.

The 45-year-old performer claims she only lived in Spain less than half of the time during the two-year period and her public relations firm says she has already paid all of the taxes that she owed plus interest.
