- Shakira pleaded guilty to tax fraud
- Millionaire fine to avoid jail
- There is speculation about family involvement
In the early hours of today, Monday, November 20, news took Shakira’s fans by surprise.
Shakira pleaded guilty to tax fraud and agreed to a million-dollar fine to avoid going to jail in Spain.
According to information from CNN, the artist will have to pay around 7.9 million dollars. The figure is equivalent to 50% of the total fraud.
However, shortly after, the supposed truth behind these accusations by the Treasury in Spain came to light. What will happen to Shakira after she pleaded guilty of this charge?
«With the press at the door and the debt in the Treasury»
In the first weeks of this year, Shakira released a song with Argentine producer Bizarrap that became a success.
You didn’t have to be a faithful admirer of the Colombian singer to realize that this song was dedicated to her ex-partner, Gerard Piqué.
Although every line of this song was directed at the former Spanish soccer player, millions of people took other hints.
«You left me as a neighbor to the mother-in-law with the press at the door and the debt in the Treasury. You thought you hurt me but made me stronger.»
Shakira stopped crying to continue ‘billing’
In another part of this song, and perhaps one of the most remembered phrases, the singer says that «women no longer cry, women make money.»
After the Treasury accusations against Shakira in Spain were revealed, several media outlets took up the information.
Through social media, a user named Miguel Enrique Perdomo Franco dropped a ‘bomb’ that no one expected.
«His father-in-law (named Joan Piqué) was her administrator of the assets of Spain. I think there you have the answer. Will he be the real culprit?»
They point out the singer’s former father-in-law
On the other hand, on the official Instagram account of the Despierta América program, other users would have more to say.
First of all, a person remembered the phrase she says in her song with Bizarrap: «No wonder someone says that he left her with the debt in the Treasury.»
Immediately, more people were encouraged to comment on this publication: «And there will be more material, this will be great.»
«Apparently the father-in-law was her administrator,» «That debt is not hers alone, he and his family washed their hands,» you can read in more comments.
«The father-in-law was his accountant in Spain»
Likewise, other users claimed that Joan Piqué was Shakira’s accountant in Spain, her place of residence with Gerard Piqué and her two children.
It is worth remembering that just a few weeks ago the Colombian singer went all out on her former father-in-law in the song El Jefe, which she sings with Fuerza Regida.
In one part of this song, the artist says: «They say that there is no evil that lasts more than a hundred years, but my ex-father-in-law is still there and does not set foot in a grave.»
So far, after the Treasury accusations against Shakira were revealed in Spain, neither Joan nor Gerard Piqué have issued any statement.
More about Joan Piqué, Shakira’s former father-in-law
Precisely because of this musical theme, Joan Piqué thought about suing the Colombian singer Shakira.
According to information from the magazine Quién the singer’s former father-in-law is a Catalan lawyer who has kept a low profile over the years.
In addition, he is the administrator of Inversiones BCN Two & Two SL, a company that owns important real estate properties.
The house in which the former couple lived belongs to this company. It is said that Joan chased the singer away from this place.
