Whatever reason Shakira had for firing two employees recently, she has a better one now!
The longtime employees tried to extort money from the Colombian hip-shaker, threatening to air her dirty laundry unless she paid them a half million dollars!
Shakira may not be from the U.S., but she plays by our rules; the Latina superstar does not negotiate with terrorists!
Instead of paying, the singer is striking back with a lawsuit for extortion and intended defamation!
It's unknown what the blackmailers were planning to reveal, but one thing is certain: Loose hips sink friendships!
