Shakira - Shakira Fires Back At Ex-boyfriend's Lawsuit

Shakira has hit back at her ex-boyfriend's allegations he is owed a slice of her fortune for guiding her career, insisting she was already a superstar when they met in 2000.

Antonio de la Rua filed a $100 million (£63 million) lawsuit against the Colombian singer last November (12) following the end of their 10-year relationship in 2010.

In his complaint, de la Rua argued he is due a chunk of her earnings after acting as Shakira's manager and helping her negotiate lucrative contracts.

Shakira has now submitted a request demanding the dismissal of his lawsuit, maintaining her ex-boyfriend advised her on some decisions but was never employed as her official manager.

The Whenever, Wherever hitmaker, who now has a baby son with Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, insists the only agreement she signed with de la Rua was a 2006 document stating they would both keep their own assets in the case of a split.
