Shakira Slams “False” Tax Fraud Accusation Amid Legal Battle

-

Shakira She is keeping her innocence. 

The “Hips Don’t Lie”45-year old singer has criticised her ongoing tax fraud case. She was accused of tax evasion for not paying millions in taxes while she lived in Spain.

“Because I have to fight for what I believe; because these are false accusations,” she told Elle in the publication’s October cover story. “First of all, I didn’t spend 183 days per year at that time at all. I was busy fulfilling my professional commitments around the world. Second, I’ve paid everything they claimed I owed, even before they filed a lawsuit. So as of today, I owe zero to them.”

As Shakira noted, “I was advised by one of the four biggest tax specialist firms in the world, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, so I was confident that I was doing things correctly and transparently from day one. However, even without evidence to support these fictional claims, as they usually do, they’ve resorted to a salacious press campaign to try to sway people, and apply pressure in the media along with the threat of reputational damage in order to coerce settlement agreements.”
