Colombian singer Shakira filed a complaint in the Bahamas against ex-partner Antonio de la Rua for taking nearly $6.7 million without her consent, according to documents reviewed by Efe on Tuesday.

The lawsuit was filed in October 2012 but its content was not made public until this Tuesday.

Shakira and her companies Carpe Diem and Light Productions are suing De la Rua, son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua, for the amount he supposedly appropriated, plus interest, court costs and compensation.

Shakira, currently the partner of Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique, with whom she has a son, accused her ex-partner and ex-representative of making off with a $2-million bond plus another fund valued at $958,476 and a credit-card debt of $363,910.

She also demands the return of $500,000 that, according to the lawsuit, were transferred from Carpe Diem accounts without the singer’s consent to the Bonds Cay real estate project in the Bahamas, of which Shakira was never a partner.

This is the artist’s response to De la Rua’s unsuccessful legal action demanding shares and assets belonging to the singer of “Loca” on grounds of the working relationship and personal bond that united them for 10 years.
