Shakira confident 'justice will prevail' in Spain tax evasion case, and breaks silence on Gerard Pique split

The Colombian popstar has been accused by the Spanish government of failing to pay her taxes in the country between the years 2012 and 2014. In a cover interview with ELLE magazine, the Hips Don't Lie hitmaker explained that she chose to fight the allegations in court rather than privately settle the case as "a matter of principle. Because I have to fight for what I believe; because these are false accusations.” Shakira declared that she has ‘paid everything they claimed I owed, even before they filed a lawsuit. So as of today, I owe zero to them.’
