Colombian pop star Shakira has been summoned to appear in a Barcelona court following allegations that she illegally avoided €14.5 million in taxes.

Spanish media reports claim the singer and philanthropist has been accused of tax evasion since December of last year.

Prosecutors argue that she falsely claimed to live in the Bahamas when she lived in Catalonia, and is due in court on June 12 over the claims.

In Spain, only trials are public, therefore her hearing will take place privately behind closed doors.

Spanish state prosecutors accused the mother-of-two of fraud last year, claiming she had pretended to live abroad and use an existing complex offshore corporate structure to prevent herself meeting tax obligations between 2012 and 2014.

She began dating former Manchester United defender Pique in 2011 and moved back to Barcelona, so should supposedly have paid taxes on her worldwide earnings to Spanish tax services.

Shakira was previously a tax resident in the Bahamas but only registered in 2015 as a full tax resident. Those who spend over 183 days in a given calendar year in the country are obliged to pay tax as Spanish residents.

Tax inspectors have been following Shakira's finances for years, and she appeared in an investigation carried out by the Guardian in 2017 on offshore corporate finance. The Paradise Papers was carried out by other news organisations alongside the Guardian.

Despite paying the €14.5 million debt settlement, she hasn't been able to stop the case from going to court. Her lawyer insisted she had always fulfilled her tax obligations in accordance with the advice of her financial advisors in every country.

It's official: Ariana Grande has overtaken Selena Gomez as the world's most followed woman on Instagram. The figures are SO tight though; Ari now has 146,337,497 and Selena is slightly behind with  146,289,115.

Unfortunately for Thank U Next fans, Cristiano Ronaldo is still the most followed person, with 155 million followers compared to the Sweetener singer's 146 million.

However, considering everything Ms Grande has achieved this year, we believe she can gain the nine million needed in no time.

Billboard are claiming that Ariana gained a huge 13 million followers on the social media site over the last four months, coinciding with the release of her record breaking albums Sweetener and Thank U, Next.

Weirdly, it also comes at the same time as her break-up from former fiancé Pete Davidson in October. The pair made the headlines after the split, coming only five months after their engagements and six months after they began dating.

It was never going to end well, was it? Ari also had a turbulent time with the overdose and subsequent death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

More recently, she won the Best Pop Album Grammy award, and became the first solo artist to hold the top three Billboard Hot 100 singles (7 Rings, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and Thank U, Next), and hold the number one album spot at the same time.

Her online wars with the likes of Grammy producers who insulted her (how dare they??) and Piers Morgan has also drawn attention to her accounts.

Meanwhile, singer and actress Selena Gomez has lost followers after taking a four-month break from social media in September after entering a treatment facility for her mental health.

She required medical help with her anxiety and depression, saying in a video at the time;

"As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given."

"Kindness and encouragement only for a bit. Just remember: negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings," she said. 

Come on lads, lets dethrone Cristiano Ronaldo. Ari's Instagram game is far stronger…Just sayin'

“All that is known at the moment is that Gio has already tried on some wedding dresses.”

The happy couple currently reside in Italy and share a one-year-old daughter.

Their marriage would also make her stepmum to the footballer’s other three children, who she already looks after at home.

Perhaps Selena will regain her place on her return. 

Before Selena, Taylor Swift wore the crown for most followed.

Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has firmly denied rape allegations that were first made against him in 2009.

The dad took to Twitter to clear his name in a series of tweets.

He wrote: “I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me.”

“Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in,” he continued.

The sportsman claimed that accuser Kathryn Mayorga made the claims to “promote themselves at my expense.”

“Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense,” he wrote.

The 33-year-old said he has a clear conscience which will allow him to “await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations.”

Kathryn claimed that the attack happened in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. She says that during the alleged attack, she repeatedly said no, giving verbal non-consent.

It is believed she went to the hospital for a sexual assault examination after the alleged incident.

Mayorga accepted a settlement and nondisclosure agreement. It is believed she received $375,000 in exchange for her silence.

According to the Associated Press, police in Las Vegas have re-opened the sexual assault case.

A woman has come forward to accuse footballer Cristiano Ronaldo of rape.

Kathryn Mayorga alleges that the Portuguese footballer raped her 2009.

She claims that the attack happened in a Las Vegas hotel room. She says that during the alleged attack, she repeatedly said no, giving verbal non-consent.

According to the lawsuit, Ronaldo was allegedly contrite after the attack, saying that he was 'usually a gentleman.'  

There are claims that Ronaldo told his team that "she said 'no' and 'stop' several times."

The same day, she reported the incident to police.

She also went to the hospital for a sexual assault examination, according to the lawsuit. 

Following the alleged incident, Mayorga accepted a settlement and nondisclosure agreement.

She claims she received $375,000 in exchange for her silence. 

German newspaper Der Spiegel previously published an interview with Mayorga, outlining her allegations in 2017. 

In an Instagram Live last month, Ronaldo addressed the allegations, branding them as 'fake news.'

Life has got to be pretty good for Cristiano Ronaldo. 

He's worth too many millions to count, has an esteemed sporting career, and he just got an airport named after him. Isn't is well for some?

However, it seems that not everything is blessed in Ronaldo's life, if the awkward photos of him standing beside an honorary piece of art are anything to go by. 

The footballer was commemorated with a bronze bust of himself in his namesake airport, but the bust left a lot to be desired in the realism department.

The bust really doesn't resemble the dashingly handsome Portuguese player, and Twitter has been completely taking the p*** out of it. 

The bust has been likened to everything from Sloth from The Goonies to an actual sloth.

Some have also claimed that it more fittingly resembles former Irish footballer Niall Quinn or the stone bust puppet from childhood TV show Art Attack.

The internet is in a complete photoshop frenzy, as people attempt to manipulate Ronaldo's face to match the bust. 

Ronaldo has yet to comment on the online reaction to the bust, and the hashtag #RonaldoBust is still going strong.

Our favourite football-lothario was caught in a steamy loving embrace this weekend while on holidays in Miami. 

Christiano Ronaldo has been enjoying life since leading Portugal to victory in the Euros 2016, and it would seem this single stud is loving the single life too!

Ronaldo was spotted kissing gorgeous fitness model Cassandre Davis in Miami over the weekend.

Packing in some major PDA, the 31-year-old football star appeared to be loved up with this blonde beauty while hanging by the pool in the Florida resort.

Cassandre is a fitness model and social media star from Miami, who has over 500k followers on Instagram.

She has become renowned for posting gorgeous selfies and images of her VERY toned bum!

Ronaldo ended a 5-year relationship with stunning Russian model Irina Shayk in January 2015, and has been enjoying the single life ever since. 

It has not yet been confirmed if Cristiano and Cassandre are officially a thing, but they sure make a handsome couple.

Sensationally, it has been reported that Cristiano Ronaldo is in a relationship with Moroccan kickboxer, Badr Hari.

The bizarre report surfaced after stories emerged in the Spanish press that he was making regular trips to Morocco to see Badr.

The Real Madrid footballer is known for dating a string of supermodels, but is said to recently be regularly visiting kickboxer friend Badr Hari for 'cuddles', according to the Daily Mail

This lead to a discussion on French TV about what footballers do in their spare time.

One of the pundits, Daniel Riolo, stated during the TV show: "What I’m interested in is what players do on the pitch, and whether their side activities might have an impact on that.

"Take the example of Cristiano Ronaldo – I'm sure flying off to Morocco three to four times a week to see a friend and cuddle with him might have an impact on his performances eventually."

This later sparked a worldwide debate on social media of whether the footballer is gay. 

It was claimed he used the private jet to take him to Morocco after training and back again the same night so he could attend the following day's training.

We have to say, they do look cosy, but are these rumours going too far?

We love a new-couple alert – especially when it involves two gorgeous megastars. And although no one should rush out and buy a hat just yet, we reckon that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are going to be the hot pairing of 2015. In fact, we're already calling them "Iriadley". 

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have been spotted together

 

The actor and supermodel (always a classic union) were said to be “canoodling” at Rihanna’s Met Ball after-party in New York’s swish Up & Down club. The reported observation comes hot-on-the-heels of their theatre date last month, when Bradley and Irina saw Finding Neverland together on Broadway. Also last month, they were both present at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

And now Spanish publication Hola! has a photograph of the duo strolling through Manhattan arm-in-arm. Apparently they’ve known each other for some time but have only recently begun dating.

Irina had arrived at the Met Ball in a stunning purple-tinged Versace dress, but her rumoured beau stayed at home until the after-parties kicked-off.

Bradley, 40, previously dated Suki Waterhouse, 23, while 29-year-old Irina had a much-publicised five-year relationship with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, 30.

The Russian beauty has appeared on the cover of the likes of Sports Illustrated and made her first feature film, Hercules, last year. Meawhile, Oscar-nominated Bradley is best-known for roles in The Hangover, American Sniper, and Silver Linings Playbook.

It came as a surprise when Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk called an end to their relationship last month after five years together.

While the footballer confirmed their break-up in an official statement, Irina has remained silent on the topic – until now it would seem.

The stunning model spoke with E! News about all things Valentine’s Day and men when she spoke about what she look for in a potential partner: “What I’m looking for in a man is – I think I love honest men and I love a man who is loyal to women. I think this is [the] most important thing in [a] man.”

Ooh, we wonder if this means her ex-boyfriend Cristiano was less than loyal – it certainly sounds like it! 

Rumour had it that the couple called an end to their relationship after Irina refused to attend Cristiano's mum's surprise 60th birthday –  something that was never confirmed nor denied. 

Meanwhile, while Cristiano has been celebrating his Ballon D'Or award, Irina hasn't been taking any breaks; she features in this month's Sports Illustrated looking absolutely gorgeous and striking some serious poses on the beach. 

If we were him, we'd be kicking ourselves right about now!
