The allegations assert that Shakira defrauded the Spanish state of a substantial 14.5 million euros ($15.7 million) on income earned during the period from 2012 to 2014. The global superstar vehemently denies the charges, contending that her full-time relocation to Spain only occurred in 2015, thereby challenging the timeline presented by prosecutors.

The courtroom spectacle unfolds as both legal teams present their arguments, delving into intricate details of Shakira’s financial dealings. The trial not only captures attention for its celebrity spotlight but also raises questions about the complexities of international tax matters and the responsibilities of high-profile individuals in complying with fiscal regulations.
