Shakira May Face Prison Due to Tax Evasion When the Singer Was Living in Spain

Shakira May Face Prison Due to Tax Evasion When the Singer Was Living in Spain

The Spanish court found enough evidence to charge Shakira with tax evasion. If the singer is pronounced guilty, she faces imprisonment.

According to her words, the case concerns the period from 2012 to 2014, when Shakira, according to her words, was a resident of the Bahamas. However, since 2011, when the singer met her lover Gerard Piqué, she spent time in Spain. According to local laws, if a person stays in the country for more than 183 days, he is considered a resident and is obliged to pay taxes. According to the prosecution, in 2012, Shakira, who was then pregnant with her first son from Pique, spent 243 days in the country. And the same happened in 2013 and 2014. However, only in 2015, she officially recognized herself as a resident of Spain and began to regularly pay money.

At the beginning of 2018, the singer had already paid about € 20 million to pay off her 2011 debt. Also, Shakira's defense insists that she paid another € 14.5 million over the period from 2012 to 2014, so the issue should be closed long ago.
