Shakira has been accused of tax evasion for a second time.

In Spain’s latest fiscal allegations against the musician, authorities said on Tuesday that the Colombian pop star had been hit with another tax fraud case after allegedly failing to pay 6.7 million euros (£5.8 million) in taxes on her income in 2018.

Shakira, 46, allegedly avoided paying the taxes by using an offshore company based in a tax haven, according to a statement from the Barcelona prosecutor’s office.

According to the release, the singer was notified of the charges in Miami, where she recently moved from Barcelona.

Shakira is already scheduled to go on trial in Barcelona in November on six counts of fraud. Prosecutors allege she evaded paying 14.5 million euros (£12.6 million) in taxes.

She reportedly faces up to eight years in prison and a hefty fine if convicted of the six counts of tax fraud.

In a recent interview with Elle, the hitmaker explained that she “paid everything they said I owed, even before they filed the lawsuit.

She added: “But I’m confident that I have enough evidence to support my case and that justice will prevail in my favor.

In July 2022, it was first revealed that Shakira was facing a new tax investigation related to her tax returns.
