International pop star Shakira could face both hefty jail terms and fines if convicted in her trial on tax fraud charges.

Prosecutors in Spain are requesting that Shakira be sentenced to eight years and two months in prison and pay a fine of 24 million euros ($24 million).

Shakira was offered a settlement agreement but rejected it, opting to go to trial. A date is yet to be decided.

Shakira’s representatives told Fox News Digital, “Shakira has always cooperated and abided by the law, demonstrated impeccable behavior as an individual and as a taxpayer, and faithfully followed the advice of the prestigious and globally recognized tax firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Unfortunately, one out of every two tax lawsuits lost with Spanish taxpayers is tax. The office is pursuing yet another baseless case of violation of her rights. Shakira is confident that she will be vindicated by the end of the legal process.”
