Shakira suing former employees
Colombian superstar Shakira is suing two former employees over allegations of extortion and defamation.
The Hips Don't Lie hitmaker claims the ex-workers threatened to release details about her private life if she didn't hand over £312,500, according to local Colombian paper El Esplendor.
The staffers, who had worked for the singer for 11 years, were recently fired for undisclosed reasons.
Shakira's lawyer, Exequiel A. Camerini, tells the publication, "There is clear evidence of intentions to defame and cause harm to my client by taking advantage of her public persona and spotless personal reputation in exchange for money."
It is not known exactly what the former employees planned to leak about Shakira.
what do you think?
I don't understand why they would ask her for £312,500. Do criminals normally do that? Wouldn't they ask for £500,000 or £1,000,000? Why the £12,500? Why an extra £500? Robbers don't go to banks and say, "Hand over £312,500, or else!" That doesn't make any sense.
Probably wants people to feel sorry for her and get them buying her records. Shriekera more like it
