Shakira charged with tax fraud a second time in Spain, allegedly failed to pay $7.1M in taxes in 2018

Shakira has been charged with tax fraud for a second time in Spain.

According to a complaint obtained by the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, prosecutors claim the singer failed to pay 6.7 million euros ($7.1 million) in taxes on her 2018 income by using “a corporate network in tax havens.”

The complaint, which was filed Tuesday, reportedly states that Shakira omitted “to declare income and deducting expenses that were not applicable, thus managing to reduce the amount to be paid to the State Administration of the Tax Agency (AEAT) for personal income tax and to the Agència Tributària de Catalunya (ATC).”

Prosecutors claim the Grammy winner failed to pay $7.1 million in taxes on her 2018 income by using “a corporate network in tax havens.”

No trial date has been set for the pop star, who moved to Miami with her two sons following her messy split from Gerard Piqué.

Shakira’s legal team told Page Six in a statement, “No notification has been received in Miami, the singer’s official address, about the lawsuit in relation to the 2018 financial year. Shakira’s legal team is focused on preparing for the trial regarding the 2012-2014 financial years, which will begin on 20 November.”

Shakira is set to stand trial for a separate tax case in November.
Spanish prosecutors claim the “Waka Waka” singer failed to pay nearly $15.4 million in taxes between 2012 and 2014.

The new accusations came less than two months before the “Waka Waka” singer, 46, is set to be tried in Barcelona for a separate case, where she was charged with six counts of fraud for allegedly failing to pay nearly $15.4 million in taxes between 2012 and 2014.

Prosecutors alleged that the mom of two spent more than half of that time period in Spain, which would require her to pay taxes there.

However, the Grammy winner denied the claims, alleging that she was not a resident of the European country during the time period in question. Her official residence in those two years was in the Bahamas.

The Colombian superstar denied the allegations, claiming that she didn’t spend most of that time frame in the European country.

Last November, Shakira claimed the Spanish government launched a “smear campaign” against her and “violated her right to privacy” by handling matters publicly and without the presumption of innocence.

Shakira’s trial is set to begin on Nov. 20.

If she is found guilty, she faces up to eight years in prison and a hefty fine.
