Shakira Resolves Second Tax Evasion Case, Pays 6.6 Million Euros
Colombian singer Shakira has taken significant steps to address tax investigations in Spain, her agent confirmed on Friday. After recently avoiding trial in her 2012-14 tax case, it has been revealed that Shakira has already paid 6.6 million euros ($7.2 million) to a Spanish court for her 2018 tax evasion case.
In July, Spanish prosecutors initiated a second case against the 46-year-old singer, alleging her use of a network of companies, some in tax havens, resulted in a 6.6 million euros loss to Spain's tax office in 2018. Shakira made the payment to the court in August, according to her agency, reaffirming her commitment to addressing potential debts with Spanish tax authorities. It's crucial to note that the payment does not imply guilt or innocence but serves as an indication of her proactive approach to resolving the matter.
This development follows Shakira's recent agreement to avoid trial in the earlier tax case, demonstrating her efforts to navigate and settle legal matters related to her finances in Spain.Alleged Egg and Sperm Fraud Unearthed in Kolkata's Prominent IVF Center
