Colombian hit singer Shakira has settled her tax fraud case in Barcelona on the first day of her court appearance. She confessed and accepted the prosecution’s charges.
Gerard Pique’s ex-partner was accused of evading 14.5 million euros in taxes between 2012 and 2014. She agreed to pay half of that amount (€7.3 million) plus a further fine of €438,000.
“This decision to settle was driven by personal, emotional and sentimental reasons that had nothing to do with legal issues. “I’ve come to the conclusion that a victory is not a victory if it costs so many years of your life,” Shakira said.
