Written by thereachfm on February 27, 2019
Spanish authorities announced yesterday that Colombian superstar Shakira will be questioned by a court near Barcelona on the 12th of June for allegedly evading 14.5 million euros in taxes,
In a statement, the high court of Catalonia, where the singer lives with her partner, FC Barcelona footballer Gerard Pique, said she had been summoned to appear before a judge in Esplugues de Llobregat.
The 42-year-old is suspected of not paying taxes in Spain despite being a resident between 2011 and 2014, according to prosecutors.
Meanwhile, Shakira’s representatives insist that until 2014 she earned most of her money in international tours and didn’t live more than six months a year in Spain, a prerequisite to be an official tax-paying resident in the country.
