Spanish prosecutors charge Shakira with tax evasion
MADRID - Nearly a year after reports emerged of  Shakira's tax evasion investigation, the pop star has reportedly been officially charged.

According to reports, the case revolves around Shakira's place of residence during those years. The charges reportedly claim that, while she reported the Bahamas as her official residence, she was allegedly spending more time in Spain with partner Gerard Piqué and their family.

The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer and Pique have been a couple since the start of the decade and have two children.

Their firstborn son Milan was born in Barcelona in 2013. According to the report, she officially moved to Barcelona in 2015. In the "Paradise Papers" leak least year, Shakira was listed as a resident of the Bahamas, according to The Guardian.

Shakira's lawyer said at the time that the artist had lived in various places "throughout her professional career and, in every case, has fully met the laws of all the jurisdictions where she has resided."

It is the latest case of a high-profile foreigner with links to top-level Spanish soccer being accused of avoiding tax while living there.

Earlier investigations looked into Pique’s Argentinian Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi and Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Real Madrid for Juventus this year.
