Shakira is answering charges in her ex-lover’s lawsuit and it basically says you didn’t make me a superstar and I am not giving you any money let alone the $100 million you are suing me for.
Ex-boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua, sued ‘The Voice’ judge late last year for $100 million as compensation for having increased her level of fame during the years in which he worked as her representative. Shakira and De la Rua, son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua, were together as a couple for over 10-years.
De la Rua filed the $100 million lawsuit shortly after Shakira accused him of stealing $3 million from her and using her credit cards without permission.
In her legal filings Shakira claims she was already a star in her native Colombia when she hooked up with De la Rua in 2000 and yes he advised her in business dealings but not in a formal way. She claims he was never her manager or business partner.
The couple remained professionally linked even when they broke up as a couple. Their professional dealings ended when her current beau Gerard Pique entered her life.
Shakira and Pique, a futboller with FC Barca, are the parents of 3-month old son, Milan.
