The prosecution is investigating tax evasion against Shakira – which apparently transfers millions to the Spanish authorities at a later date. Consequences the pop singer no longer has to fear.

According to a media report, the Colombian pop singer Shakira has transferred more than 20 million euros to the Spanish tax authorities. The Catalan newspaper “El Periodico” wrote that the sum relates to the tax year 2011, for which Shakira could no longer be prosecuted.

The 41-year-old has two compulsory sons with Barcelona-based Spanish football star Gerard Piqué. Shakira officially resides in Catalonia only since 2015. Before that she was registered in the Bahamas.

The prosecutor in Barcelona confirmed that investigations into the Colombian musician are under way for alleged tax evasion. By June, the prosecution must decide whether to prosecute Shakira for tax offenses in the other years.
