Looks like Shakira will have to stand trial in her $13.9 million tax evasion case. On Tuesday, a Spanish judge approved a trial for Colombian singer Shakira on charges of tax fraud. A trial date has not yet been set. Prosecutors are seeking an eight-year prison sentence, plus fines if she is convicted. Back in July, she rejected a settlement offer in the case, 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. The case hinges on where Shakira lived during the two-year time span. The performer alleges that she spent most of her time in her primary residence, the Bahamas, while prosecutors will aim to prove she spent the majority of the period in Spain.
