Shakira questioned by Spanish judge over alleged tax fraud

Colombian superstar Shakira was questioned by a judge near Barcelona on Thursday over alleged evasion of 14.5 million euros ($16.3 million) in taxes.

The 42-year-old singer avoided dozens of reporters, photographers and television cameras at the courthouse in Esplugues de Llobregat by entering and leaving via an adjacent garage.

The hearing of the performer, one of the biggest stars from Latin America who lives in Barcelona with footballer Gerard Pique and their two young sons, lasted an hour and 20 minutes, a court spokeswoman said.
