Colombian pop star Shakira is facing some hefty fines and potential prison time over claims that she evaded millions in taxes between 2012 and 2014 in the country of Spain. Bazaar Daily UK notes that the popstar is facing more than $15m in fines and may face some time behind bars as Spanish prosecutors are preparing to duke it on during her trial.
Shakira however reportedly maintains that she did not live in Spain full time and instead had a full time residence in the Bahamas according to public records in the country. The singer declined an offer from prosecutors to avoid trial in essence but now may face trouble if she’s convicted. She is understood to have been in Spain at the time to support her ex-partner.
