“The Voice” coach is fighting back after her ex-boyfriend Antonio de la Rua filed a lawsuit against her in NYC last year, claiming he was her manager during their 11-year courtship. According to TMZ, de la Rua says he scored lucrative music deals for her and is owed a big chunk — $100 million to be exact — of her earnings.
But in legal documents filed by Shakira, the latin pop star says she was already an international success when she met de la Rua in 2000 and explains that even though he helped her with some decisions, he was never her manager.
The new mom, who just welcomed her son Milan with her soccer player beau Gerard Pique, claims that the only thing she and de la Rua ever signed was a 2006 agreement in her native Colombia, in which they decided to keep their own assets separate if they split.
De la Rua is the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua. He dated Shakira for more than a decade before ending their relationship in Jan. 2011.
