Shakira Sued by Ex-Boyfriend for $100 Million
Ay no! Who could sue someone as adorable and awesome as Shakira? Well, apparently her ex-boyfriend/manager, Antonio de la Rúa can! The NY post is reporting that one of our fave colombianas has been slapped with a $100 million lawsuit by la Rúa who is charging that she faulted on a deal to keep paying him his share of her business profits after they broke up. Maybe not the best idea to hire your novio as your manager, Shaki….
The pair started dating in 2000 and la Rúa took over the Shakira brand after her 2004 tour lost money. Apparently, under his management, she started bringing in the dough on her tours….plus scored a pretty sweet deal with Live Nation. According to the lawsuit, even though the pareja broke up in 2010, their business partnership continued until October 2011.
La Rúa is claiming Shakira has since refused to pay him any of the profits or property he’s owed since 2011, when he was fired by her lawyer.
Que paso here? Do you think Shakira is being greedy with her dinero…or an ex-boyfriend after some of her moo-lah?
