The Colombian acknowledged her guilt before the Treasury in the best interest of her children.
hakira has made one of the most important decisions of her life. The Colombian singer reached a settlement with Spanish authorities in which she openly accepted that she defrauded the Treasury.
Shakira was accused of defrauding more than 14 million euros between 2012 and 2014 and the prosecution initially requested a sentence of eight years and two months in prison, along with a fine of 23.8 million euros for six tax offenses.
After the agreement, the artist has finally been sentenced to three years in prison, although she will not have to serve the sentence as she does not have a criminal record. She will also pay a fine amounting to 7.3 million.
After learning that Shakira’s legal defense has reached an agreement with the Prosecutor’s Office to close the criminal proceedings, the singer has shared her thoughts on social media.
Although the artist didn’t make any statements upon her arrival at the court or upon her departure once the agreement with the prosecution was confirmed, Shakira has broken her silence with some meaningful words.
“A wolf like me always chooses family,” was the clear message left by the Colombian on her personal Instagram account. Shakira accompanied that comment with a video showing her dedication to her children Milan and Shasha from the Latin Grammys after winning the award for Best Song.
The Colombian singer reaffirmed that she opted to settle the case for the sake of her children.
