Shakira is making quite the impression on this season on The Voice, as the mega star is holding her own amongst the guys. Off the show, it’s not all fun and games these days for Shakira though, as she is now battling an ex-boyfriend, who is trying to stake his claim in her fame, even filing a lawsuit for $100 million against her. Don’t worry though, the feisty singer can handle this one too!
Shakira has proved to us that she can hold her own on The Voice, and now she is proving that she can hold her own in her personal battles as well. The singer was recently slapped with a $100 million lawsuit by her ex-boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua. In the lawsuit, de la Rua claims that during their 10 year relationship, he was also Shakira’s manager, and earned her some lucrative contracts and deals, for which he feels he is entitled to be compensated – heavily.
Don’t worry though, according to Shakira, he is not getting a dime from her. The Hips Don’t Lie singer is ready to do battle with de la Rua, claiming that he was never her manager, and she never signed anything stating that he was, nor should he be entitled to anything. Shakira has asked a judge to dismiss the entire lawsuit, claiming that she was already an International superstar before she hooked up with de la Rua back in 2000. You go girl!
