In July it was revealed that Shakira is being investigated for alleged tax fraud in Spain for a second time.
The singer was first accused of tax fraud in July 2021, when the Barcelona prosecutor’s office claimed she should have paid taxes because she lived in Spain for more than half the year between 2012 and 2014.
The authorities allegedly have $13.9 million (£13 million) on him. Shakira insisted her tax residence was in the Bahamas at the time and called the claims “false”, saying she had paid what she owed.
