Shakira Accused of Evading Millions in Tax in Spain
Shakira could face jail and a tax bill of “several dozen million dollars” after reportedly being accused of evasion.
As you know, she spends part of her time in Spain and there are reports that authorities want to probe her 2011-14 finances. They said she should have paid tax on worldwide earnings.
State prosecution chiefs will now have to determine whether they agree – and, if so, launch formal legal proceedings.
Her lawyer told Spanish news website “El Confidencial” the singer lived in Barcelona – but quoted him as justifying that “as an international artist, she had lived in several places in the course of her professional life, acting in total accordance with the laws of all the jurisdictions she resides in.”
Her world tour was canceled because of her vocal problems – and now this. 2018 isn’t shaping up to be so hot for her so far.
