Ex Sues Shakira: Columbian Singer Hit By $100m Lawsuit?


Shakira Antonio De La Rua

Shakira's ex-boyfriend/manager, who alleges she defaulted on a deal to keep paying him his share of her business profits after they broke up, has begun legal proceedings against her, according to The New York Post.

Antonio De La Rua - who's relationship with Shakira started in the year 2000 - says he transformed the then struggling Shakira Mebarak Ripoll into a financial success story in his Manhattan Supreme Court suit. Under his management, she earned "tens of millions of dollars" touring, and scored a $300 million deal with Live Nation, the suit says. The suit continues to say that their business partnership continued until October 2011, when she had her lawyer fire him, the suit says. The pair, by this point, had already broken up in 2010. The couple opened up to E! News at the time of their break up, saying, "They have been the most wonderful years of our lives, and thanks to that love and the respect that we share for one another we have been an exceptional couple and partners. However, since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship. Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now."

Shakira is currently dating soccer star Gerard Pique, who is thought of as one of FC Barcelona's most important player. The pair is currently expecting a baby. Shakira's people are yet to comment on this story.
