Shakira to face trial over tax fraud

It happens to the best of them.  Celebrities who entrust their finances to other people and end up holding the bag.

In Shakira’s case, Spanish authorities say she skipped over $13 million in taxes! That’s a whole other ball game.

A trial date has not yet been set, per the outlet, but the star faces a possible eight-year sentence plus a large fine if she is found guilty of not paying taxes from 2012 to 2014.

In July, she rejected a settlement offer in the case, according to Reuters, which would have settled the case out of court.

Shakira has denied any wrongdoing, and her public relations firm maintains that she has paid what she owed plus $3 million in interest, per the AP.
