Shakira Must Face Tax Evasion Charges in Court

Shakira Must Face Tax Evasion Charges in Court

A Spanish court has summoned pop-singer Shakira to testify about tax-evasion charges against her.

According to Page Six:

A Spanish court investigating Shakira for possibly evading 14.5 million euros ($16.4 million) in taxes has called on the pop music star to testify in mid-June.

Prosecutors charged the singer in December for not paying taxes in Spain between 2012 and 2014, when she lived mostly in the country despite having an official residence in Panama.

In their indictment, prosecutors also allege that the Colombian-born singer concealed her income through 14 companies in tax heavens.

Shakira’s Spanish public relations firm says the singer has settled all her debts with local tax authorities.

Shakira's date for testifying in regards to the charges is June 12th.
