The Colombian singer Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is considered the “Queen of Latin Music” and noted for her versatile style. It’s been a challenging year for Shakira, who has been dealing with many problems lately. It has often been difficult for Shakira to maintain her love life.
There have been rumblings that she may soon meet with her ex-boyfriend Antonio De La Rúa. Her relationship with Antonio De La Rúa lasted more than 11 years before she started dating Gerard Pique. Her legal battles with Gerard Pique to gain custody of their children go hand in hand with her fight against tax fraud.
Who Is Antonio De La Rúa – Shakira’s Ex-Boyfriend
It cannot be overstated that Antonio De La Rúa is one of Shakira’s most famous former flames. Antonio De La Rúa, son of former Argentine president Fernando de la Rúa, and Shakira had been dating from 2000 to 2011 before she met Gerard Piqué and split.
Antonio De La Rúa is a lawyer by profession. He headed his father’s presidential campaign and was an advisor to his father during his presidency. In addition, he served as Shakira’s lawyer during their relationship, and after their separation, he continued to serve as Shakira’s lawyer.
The two, however, found themselves in a courtroom on opposite sides in 2012 and 2013, as Antonio De La Rúa was suing the singer for compensation for the work he had done for her. It ended up getting dismissed.
Will Shakira Go To Prison For A $24M Tax Evasion Case
A Spanish court ruling on Tuesday shows that Shakira will face trial over the ongoing tax fraud case. As of yet, there has not been a date set for the trial to take place.
In a court filing on July 29, according to a Spanish prosecutor, Shakira should be jailed for eight years and two months for alleged tax evasion. As well as that, if convicted, she would be subject to a fine of $24 million.
According to the case, the singer didn’t pay around $14M in taxes between 2012 and 2014.
Is Shakira Getting Back with Antonio De La Rúa
Before the news broke that Gerard Piqué cheated on her, the Waka Waka singer had been dating the Spanish footballer for 11 years. Although they never married, they share two children, Sasha and Milan. Her legal battles with Gerard Pique to win custody of their children are intertwined.
Even though Gerard Piqué seems to be in love with 23-year-old PR student Clara Chia Marti after his breakup with Shakira, it is conceivable that the Colombian singer may follow in the footsteps of the soccer player by following in his footsteps.
Possibly, she may meet up with her ex-boyfriend Antonio De La Rúa soon, but it is not confirmed yet. However, sources claim they have already been in touch via telephone, and Antonio De La Rúa is more than happy to help Shakira with whatever she needs. They have even agreed to meet in Miami.
