Shakira might actually be confronting a jail sentence of over eight years over tax fraud allegations.
The 'Hips Don't Lie' singer has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax office on pay procured between the years 2012 and 2014.
Shakira, 45, has dismissed a plea deal, as lawyers claimed that the songstress was 'sure beyond a shadow of a doubt of her guiltlessness'.
Nonetheless, they claim that the songstress kept up with official tax residency in the Bahamas until 2015
