The Dominican merengue star, who is on tour in Europe, stopped by Shakira's mansion on Tuesday (21Jul15), but his visit didn't get off to a great start after the elevator in her home broke down - while Guerra was inside.

The 58 year old was eventually freed, but the scare has prompted Guerra to swear off elevators.

Shakira shared two photos of her pal's visit with fans online, including one snap of Guerra inside the lift after he was rescued.

In Spanish, she captioned the images, "@JuanLuisGuerra trapped in the elevator of my house!! JL I hope you will want to come visit me (again)!!"

Responding to the message, Guerra replied, "I'll visit your house, but next time use the stairs!"
