The Latin American star is facing jail time in Spain, where she lived with soccer player Gerard Pique until she caught him cheating. The singer can go to jail for eight years. She is accused of tax evasion between 2012 and 2014. In the treasury of Spain, 14.5 million euros were missing.
The troubles in Shakira’s life did not end there. The prosecutor’s office demands to fine the 45-year-old performer of the hit Whenever, Wherever for 23 million euros. The supervisory authority accuses the celebrity of six crimes against the state budget at once.
A successful singer could have avoided such a fate, but the artist refused to make a deal with the prosecutor’s office, newspaper El Pais writes . Now, while awaiting trial, Shakira has time to say goodbye to her sons, because she risks being separated from them for a long time.
