If she has to go to court in Barcelona – Spain on charges of tax fraud of up to 14.5 million Euros, Shakira faces a sentence of 8 years in prison and a fine of 23.8 million Euros if she loses the case. However, she chose a peaceful solution by agreeing to accept the charges from the prosecution.
Thus, this music star will end his legal troubles by paying a fine of nearly 7.5 million Euros.
Shakira chose to resolve the tax fraud scandal quietly, without going to court
From the beginning, Shakira firmly denied all accusations. She affirmed that she did nothing wrong. After the information about reaching an agreement with the prosecution was announced, Shakira shared in a statement from her legal team that choosing to resolve the scandal peacefully was in the best interests of her children.
It comes from personal emotional reasons, not related to legal issues.
“My children do not want to see their mother sacrifice her personal happiness in this war. I think victory is not a victory if the price is losing many beautiful years of life” – Shakira experience.
