Shakira’s ex denied access to “shared” bank account

August 2013



A court in Geneva has ruled that Antonio de la Rua, the ex-boyfriend and former business partner of Shakira, must be denied to one of the singer’s bank accounts. De la Rua had claimed that he should have access to the account because it contained revenues from his former business partnership with the star. De la Rua, the son of former Argentine president Fernando de la Rua, sued Shakira last November, claiming that the singer had reneged on business commitments made after the couple’s romantic relationship ended. He argues that while Shakira initially said their professional relationship would continue after they split as a couple in 2010, last year she dropped his business services, cutting him out of the profits of deals he claims he negotiated, including a major contract with Live Nation. The Swiss court had ruled that de la Rua did not have sufficient evidence to prove what agreements the couple reached regards Shakira’s business affairs in 2010 and de la Rua conceded that the agreement had not been written down. The bank account in the current action was in Shakira’s sole name. De la Rua’s $100 million law suit against his ex is being pursued through the US courts.
