Shakira Tax Evasion Update: Grammys and Taxes Collide Again

In the latest Shakira tax evasion update, the Grammy-winning artist is once again making headlines, this time as Spanish prosecutors charge her with tax evasion. According to Billboard, the charges stem from an alleged failure to pay $7.1 million in taxes in 2018, coupled with accusations of using an offshore company to evade taxes. Shakira received this news while residing in Miami, where she lives with her two children, adding another layer to her recent media attention following her breakup with longtime boyfriend Gerard Piqué.

Reports stated that this isn’t the first time the Grammy-winning artist has faced such charges in Spain. In the Shakira tax evasion update in 2018, Barcelona prosecutors brought charges against her for failing to pay over $14 million in taxes while living in the country. Prosecutors claim that during the years 2012 to 2014, Shakira officially declared her residence as the Bahamas, a lower-tax jurisdiction compared to Spain.

Shakira Tax Evasion Update: The Artist’s Trial Prospects and Her Defiant Stance

The last year’s Shakira tax evasion update, a Spanish judge approved a trial against Shakira, and in July 2022, prosecutors requested an eight-year and two-month prison sentence if she’s convicted. However, a trial date has not been set.

Shakira has vehemently denied these allegations, previously criticizing Spanish tax authorities for what she labeled a “salacious press campaign.”

The final Shakira tax evasion update just this year is that she maintains that she has paid all the amounts owed.

These charges against Shakira come amid heightened scrutiny of tax practices among high-profile celebrities, with investigations also targeting figures like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for alleged tax underpayment.
