On Monday, January 20, Shakira became the absolute protagonist of the international press. The Colombian artist reached a last-minute agreement in her tax fraud case with the Prosecutor’s Office and the private accusations; thus avoiding the trial for the tax fraud case and her imprisonment.
The singer thus puts an end – after paying million-dollar fines – to a situation that could have continued for years. She does it for her children, Milan and Sasha, whom she has always put first. However, her return to Spain has made her realize that Barcelona was the place where she left everything to be a mother and dedicate herself to her children and the other “star” of the house, abandoning what she he loved most: her music.
The artist returns more sincere and brave than ever to our country, and with that enthusiasm she gave a revealing interview to the Colombian edition of the magazine ¡Hola!where he had no qualms about admitting that during his time in Barcelona, his career “suffered”, among other things, from dedicating himself to supporting Gerard Piqué.
A time that the Colombian does not remember with sadness, but rather it seems that she has learned from it. After her complicated breakup with the father of her children, the artist decided to re-emerge like a phoenix, and we have all witnessed what has come next: success after success.
“In Spain, the years I was there, already established, I dedicated myself to raising my children and supporting my ex-partner’s career. My career suffered from being far from the music industry and from where my work really is, which is in the United States,” she explains to the aforementioned publication, giving thanks for having been able to resume her career after so many years away from the industry.
A return in style, and proof of them are the records and awards that she has achieved over the months since her relationship with the former footballer ended. Above all, due to her already historic collaboration with the Argentine producer Bizarrap, BZRP Music Session #53.
A clean slate that he does, once again, for his children. This is what she declared in his speech at the Latin Grammys, ensuring that he had promised them that her happiness was going to be a priority. “I have promised them that I am going to be happy, that they are going to have a mother who is going to laugh with all her laughter, because they deserve it.”
A decision that was also decisive in the scope of the agreement with the Prosecutor’s Office in the case of tax fraud. In an extensive statement, the singer detailed the reasons that had led her to make this decision. “I have to choose my battles and the most important one for me now is to do everything so that my children live a full life and focus on what is really important: watching them grow and spending time with them.”
