Colombian pop star Shakira is being sued for $100m by a former boyfriend who acted as her business manager for six years, BBC News reported.
Antonio de la Rua claims he was the "principal architect" of a business plan that turned the singer into a global superstar.He is seeking to "recover his share of past and future partnership profits," according to papers filed in New York.
In a separate case, Shakira is suing de la Rua for misappropriation of funds.
Her legal case, filed in the Bahamas in October, accuses him of paying himself an unauthorized bonus and using funds from their business partnership to pay personal expenses.
Mr De la Rua denies the allegations.
