Shakira faces EIGHT YEARS IN JAIL and a £19MILLION fine for a £12 million tax evasion.

Shakira, a pop artist, has been warned that if she is found guilty of a purported £12 million tax scam, she may spend up to eight years in prison. The 45-year-old singer is accused of six charges of defrauding the government between 2012 and 2014, and Spanish prosecutors are also seeking a £19 million fine for him. It happens after the mother-of-two, who was born in Colombia, turned down an amicable solution that required her to confess to wrongdoing.

The money she allegedly owes the treasury, combined with interest estimated to be worth £3 million, has already been paid back. The accusations were made public today for the first time in an indictment that prosecutors sent to the investigating court close to Barcelona.

Shakira facing 8 years jail time for tax fraud of £12m

Shakira, whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, is charged with employing an intricate offshore business structure and feigning a foreign residence in order to evade taxes. She is suspected of using the illicit arrangement between 2012 and 2014, when she was dating Barcelona-based player Gerard Pique. The couple, who have two children, divorced earlier this year after Pique was accused of being disloyal by local media.

Before the two announced their split, Shakira is claimed to have made two attempts to restart the romance but was rejected by Pique. Despite their separation, the couple appears to have maintained their amicable relationship and has been spotted together at their kids’ sporting events.

‘Unfortunately, the Spanish Tax Office, which loses one out of every two lawsuits with its taxpayers, continues to violate her rights and pursue yet another baseless case. ‘Shakira is confident that her innocence will be proven by the end of the judicial process.’

Shakira, who had previously registered as a full tax resident in the Bahamas, did so only in 2015. On their global income, official residents of Spain pay Spanish taxes. For taxation purposes, individuals who spend more than 183 days in Spain within a particular calendar year are regarded as Spanish residents.
