 Shakira Could Spend Up To Eight Years In Prison If She Is Found Guilty Of Stealing $13.9 Million In Taxes.

In a $13.9 million tax evasion lawsuit, Shakira is accused of failing to pay taxes from 2012 to 2014 in Spain and could spend up to eight years in prison. On Tuesday, Spanish authorities made progress by enabling prosecutors to pursue the case. 
The singer will eventually go on trial in the matter. The singer asserted that she had paid the amount she owed plus interest of $3 million, and she denied any wrongdoing.

Where Shakira spent the majority of her time during the two-year span is a crucial aspect of the case. 
Prosecutors assert that the singer was in Spain, but she claims that it was primarily in the Bahamas, where she resides. A spokesperson for the "Hips Don't Lie" performer said in a statement in July that her client had done nothing wrong.
The spokesman at the time stated, "Shakira has always cooperated and complied with the law, exhibiting excellent behaviour as an individual and taxpayer, and dutifully following the advise of PriceWaterhouse Coopers, a prominent and well-known tax firm.

"Unfortunately, the Spanish Federal Revenue, which loses one out of every two lawsuits with its taxpayers, continues to infringe upon their rights and pursue yet another groundless action," the statement concluded. By the conclusion of the legal proceeding, Shakira is convinced that her innocence will be established. There is no definite date for the trial.
In related news, Piqué refuses to return Shakira's 15 Grammy awards following their breakup. The ex-couple is reportedly battling for the singer's Grammys as well as for custody of their children, according to the Spanish newspaper La Razon. 
The portal states that the Barcelona player still has the 15 Grammys that the musician has earned over her career in her office and that she is determined to get them back as soon as possible.
