Shakira’s Ex-Boyfriend Files $100 Million Lawsuit Against Her

April 07, 2013 08:41 AM by Lisa Princ

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!

What do you think of Shakira’s ex-boyfriend’s claims? Is he just trying to get rich quick? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it. Comment below to share your thoughts with us!

    I believe shakira owes a lot of her success to her ex-boyfriend. Careers are made by the people who direct, guide, and do the work behind the scene. She probably feels that because he was the boyfriend his work, support, and contribution were just part of the relationship. She took advantage of him and should pay him. She owes him!

    He it’s right. It was very know that He help her in her career, of course he deserve that amount of money She must finish their relationship in a legal way. Everybody know that they was living not only as a couple but as if they were married. She use him to escalate on her career.

    He is exactly like his dad, the ex-president of Argentina. Shame on them!!!
    … And yes, she was already a superstar before she met him… He should return ALL the money she spent on him all those years during the relationship!

    If she has millions then I believe he may be entitled to something. Maybe she could buy him a house or throw him a million, what ever she could afford. My reasoning is if the rolls were reversed the female would expect something for ten yrs. For example Simone Cowell bought his girlfriends lovely new homes as parting gifts……And do so just because you can…

    Curious that the ex is just now suing her. What a turd to try to cash in now that she’s on the show! Not to worry, Shakira, he won’t get anything. Just stay your sexy gorgeous self and keep showing us that beautiful smile!

    What a grubber he is! I hope the judge kicks him out of court the same way that another judge did when Adele’s boyfriend tried the same stunt!

    The man cheated on her. She caught him red handed after touring, she broke up and moved on. Now she is happy with a child. Had she been that important to de La Rua, wouldn’t he had at least proposed? He didn’t. Instead he played her out and now that she got over the pain and betrayal, he tries to come back to bring her back down. Some people cannot live without seeing others as miserable as they are.

    Typical man. Sitting on the coattails of a successful woman, thinking that a “little” somesome entitles him to what is hers. Why wasn’t he established at a “real job” and contributing to the finances of the household. SHE paid his way. Oh, and by the way “Hector”, pillow talk doesn’t count as “being a manager.”
    Shakira, Lady give him “dog poop” rolled up in a cigar cuz that is ALL he deserves. “Palante Guerrera”.

    Indeed, I think he’s full of s**t and he is just trying to get rich quick. I hate jerks like him who think they can pull scams like this.

    She had released 4 albums and was Grammy nominated before she ever met this guy. He did zilch to make her a star. If there was nothing signed and official between them, he’s screwed. Also, if managers get about 10-15% and he’s asking for 100 million, that means she made a billion or more during the time they were together, which seems like a huge stretch to me.

    If he did afford her services or partook in any labor, marketing, etc. that directly related to her business ventures, specifically anything that was put in writing, then he should be compensated like any other individual. However, if he’s like an ex who’s trying to get gas money for every ride they shared while they were dating, he’s crazy. I hope everyone gets what they deserve, not what they THINK they deserve.
