Shakira challenges Spanish tax authority

Shakira could go to jail. She is accused of tax evasion in Spain. Because the singer refused an out-of-court settlement, she has to answer in court.

Pop superstar Shakira (45) takes on the Spanish tax authorities. In a criminal case, the singer and composer has rejected an out-of-court settlement with the tax authorities of her adopted country of Spain, as she announced in a statement to Spanish media on Wednesday.

The musician, who became famous with hits like “Waka Waka” and “Hips Don’t Lie”, will have to answer in court in the next few months. She is accused of evading a total of around 14.5 million euros between 2012 and 2014. The Colombian artist faces a long prison sentence if convicted.
