Shakira sued by ex-beau and agent

2012-09-11 14:17
Bogota -Shakira's former boyfriend and agent is suing her over contracts that were pending after their breakup, the Colombian pop star's lawyer said on Monday.

Antonio de la Rua of Argentina filed suit in July, and sought to have bank assets frozen, attorney Ezequiel Camerini said in a statement.

The request for the freezing was denied, but the underlying case is still alive, he added without giving details.

Simply dissolving a company

Last week Colombian media reported that de la Rua, son of a former president and Shakira's beau until just over a year ago, sued her seeking $250m and real estate they shared during their 11-year relationship.

That is meant to be compensation for contracts that remained pending after they called it quits.

Days later, a lawyer for de la Rua denied there was any lawsuit, and said the two former lovers were simply dissolving a company they owned together.

But Camerini denied on Monday there was ever any such joint venture.

Shakira now dates Spanish football star Gerard Pique of the FC Barcelona team. In recent months she has also been in the news over rumours - denied by her father - that she was pregnant.
