Shakira Claims That She’s A Victim Of A Smear Campaign And Has Proof Of Her Innocence In Spanish Tax Case
Shakira has been dealing with some tax problems for a few years now after the Spanish government came after her for unpaid taxes. The case will go to trial, and Shakira could face up to 8 years in prison if she’s convicted. In the October issue of Elle, Shakira denied any wrongdoing and said that she’s paid everything the Spanish government claims she owes, and yet they’re still coming after her. Now, she’s filed documents against the Spanish prosecutors once again affirming her innocence and saying that they’re trying to smear her. Hmm, that explains the boars. The government paid those wild boars to fuck with her.
TMZ says that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has not been keeping up his community service. Mike got sentenced to eight months in prison over some good-old-fashioned tax evasion. He went to prison–which was apparently a hoot and a half and a great networking opportunity. He served his time before his release last September and finally reunited with his wife, Lauren Pesce–who is currently pregnant with their first child. So that would normally be that–Mike could ride off to his life of wealth and reality TV stardom and a new family… except Mike forgot about the fact he also had to do community service. Now Mike is behind as shit. I mean, come on, coronavirus quarantine was the perfect opportunity for community service. See, Felicity Huffman was truly a model rich-person criminal–she wrapped that shit up!
It took only one look at Todd Chrisley‘s overly-taut face skin for me to know that he, in fact, does not know best. The reality TV mess and real estate “magnate” has been charged with 12 counts of financial crimes in Georgia. Yes, another day, another rich person getting charged with tax evasion. Luckily for him, he’s an American citizen so he can’t get deported for it–sorry Joe Giudice.
Tori Spelling can run but she cannot hide. City National Bank has been coming after her for a while. The former (and now current again) Beverly Hills, 90210 mess has owed City National a shit ton of money for quite some time now. She was supposed to have paid off a loan she took out years ago, years ago, but Tori is as good with money as Dean McDermott is with staying faithful. Well, the California court system is ready to come down hard on ol’ girl, because they just issued a bench warrant for her arrest for not showing up to court.
Lil Wayne is finally free of his tax debt to the IRS. In 2017, Lil Wayne got in trouble for not paying taxes five and six years prior. In 2011 he failed to pay $7,341,399.07 in taxes and then in 2012 he failed again to pay $6,853,545.77 in taxes. So Lil Wayne was on a big hook for $14,194,944.84 total. If you have made enough money to pay $14,194,944.84 in taxes alone, I’m sorry, I can’t feel sorry for you for any reason. But now it seems that Lil Wayne has stopped fucking over the American government and it’s tax-paying citizens and has paid back all that was owed.
Either Wesley Snipes is going to have to do runner, or he’s going to have to call up John Leguizamo and start brainstorming who they can get to take over for Patrick Swayze (Cumberbatch would be my choice) in a To Wong Fu reboot because he is going to need a boat load of cash fast. The Blast reports that a judge recently denied Wesley’s settlement proposal to the IRS to pay $850,000 instead of the $9.5 million he owed, which was originally a $23.5 million bill for unpaid taxes for the years 1999 – 2001 (according to Forbes, he earned about $40 million during that time period). Now Wesley has to pay up or die trying.
