Since breaking up with Gerard Pique in June 2022, Shakira has been in the news a lot. If that wasn’t enough, the Spanish R&B star has also been battling tax evasion scandals since July.
The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer, who is in the middle of a custody battle for her children, is reportedly planning to leave Barcelona for good.
Page Six says sources have told them the Colombian superstar may be leaving her personal issues behind. The 45-year-old singer could move to Miami and live there full time. Let’s not forget that Shakira could spend up to eight years in prison because the Spanish government claims she cheated on her taxes.
Will Shakira leave Spain over tax evasion claims?
Ana Lourdes Martinez, a family friend and real estate agent who works with Shakira’s family, told Page Six that she thinks Miami is Shakira’s “safe haven.” The Miami Beach singer can count on her close family and friends to help her. In Miami, she also lives in a huge private waterfront mansion.
Martinez, who works with Shakira’s brother Antonio on the singer’s real estate, said, “Miami is her home.” He also said that Shakira’s parents, brother, niece and nephew all live in Miami. “She has no family in Spain,” he said. It’s very different from Barcelona. There are also rumors that Shakira’s friends are trying to persuade her to move to South Beach. Interestingly, the talented singer also said that she wanted to move to the Sunshine State. Shakira bought a house in Spain in 2012, in case you didn’t know.
Shakira and Gerard Pique have been together since 2011 when they announced they would be separating in June 2022. Milan is 9 years old and Sasha is 7 years old. They have two sons together. In a statement to E! News, the two said, “We regret to confirm that we are breaking up.” They also said, “We wish each other the best.” “We ask that you respect their privacy as the safety of our children is our top priority. Thank you for being able to understand.”
The soccer player met the pop star after being in the music video for his song ‘Waka Waka’, which was the official song of the 2010 World Cup. Clara Chia Marti, a 23-year-old public relations student, reportedly dated Secretly sting. He also privately messaged other women, such as Brazilian model Suzy Cortez, who goes by the name Miss BoomBum.
If Shakira is found guilty of a $14.6 million tax evasion, she could go to jail for up to eight years. In Spain, the singer was charged with six counts of government theft between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors want an additional fine of $23.1 million. It was also said that the singer had already repaid the money she owed to the treasury, plus $3.65 million in interest.
