Shakira tax evasion: Singer Summoned by Spanish Court

Colombian pop star Shakira will appear in a Spanish court on June 12 to face accusations of failing to pay 14.5 million euros ($23 million) in tax.

The shock news was revealed on February 26, after a court statement was uncovered from January 22 summoning the singer.

The indictment alleges she concealed her income in tax havens through 14 companies and had lived in the Spanish region between 2012 and 2014 but failed to pay income tax.

Shakira’s representatives said in a statement after the accusation was filed that the singer did not live in Spain until 2015 and had met all of her tax obligations.

The 42-year-old singer currently resides in Barcelona with her soccer player partner Gerard Pique, and their two children.
