Spanish prosecutors want Shakira sentenced to more than eight years in prison for alleged tax evasion. This is apparent from the indictment, which AFP was able to read on Friday. There will also be a fine of 24 million euros.

The 45-year-old is suspected of defrauding Spanish tax authorities of 14.5 million euros because she allegedly failed to pay income tax in Spain between 2012 and 2014. She lived in the country with her ex -current partner, footballer Gerard Pique, but had his tax residence in the Bahamas until 2015.

Shakira denies the allegations. Her lawyers explained that her income came mainly from international tours and that she did not live in Spain for more than six months a year. You have also already paid a good 17 million euros to the Spanish tax authorities.
