Shakira sued by former boyfriend
December 3 , 2012
Colombian pop singer Shakira is being sued for $100 million by a former boyfriend who acted as her business manager for six years.
Antonio de la Rua has claimed he was the "principal architect" of a business plan that turned Shakira into a global superstar.
He is seeking to "recover his share of past and future partnership profits," according to papers filed in New York.
In a separate case, Shakira is suing de la Rua for misappropriation of funds.
Her case, filed in the Bahamas in October, alleged he paid himself an unauthorized bonus and used funds from their business partnership to pay personal expenses.
De la Rua denies the allegations.
