According to a prosecutor’s office document, a Spanish prosecutor is seeking an eight-year prison sentence for Colombian superstar Shakira in connection with a 14.5-million-euro tax fraud case.

The singer, who has sold more than 80 million records worldwide with hits like “Hips Don’t Lie,” rejected a settlement offer from the prosecutor’s office earlier this week.

She is accused of failing to pay taxes between 2012 and 2014, when she claims she did not live in Spain.

Prosecutors in Spain said Friday that if Colombian pop star Shakira is convicted in her upcoming trial for alleged tax fraud, they will ask a court to sentence her to eight years and two months in prison.

Shakira, whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, is accused of failing to pay 14.5 million euros ($15 million) in taxes to the Spanish government between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors also stated that they would seek a fine of 24 million euros ($24 million).

 

Shakira is charged with six counts in the indictment. The singer rejected a settlement offer from prosecutors this week, instead opting to go to trial. A trial date has not yet been set.

In a statement issued Friday, her publicists in London stated that Shakira “has always cooperated and abided by the law, demonstrating impeccable conduct as an individual and a taxpayer.” The publicists claimed that the Spanish Tax Agency had violated her rights.
