Shakira's old boyfriend is dissed and dismissed!
The Los Angeles Superior Court ruled in favor of Shakira, dismissing the lawsuit filed against her by her ex, Antonio de la Rua.
This case was one of three lawsuits that Antonio had filed, claiming that he had a "partnership" in Shakira's income and that he was the brains behind some of her most popular hits. Yeah, we were pretty sure that accusation was borderline Illegal!
Thankfully, as of today, all three of his cases have been rejected. Time to rejoice Team Shakira!
Antonio had lost similar cases in New York, and in Geneva, where a Swiss judge determined they were never legal partners to begin with.
Shakira brought this precedent setting case up as part of her argument, as well as the fact that the two signed a prenuptial-type agreement that said the two were to keep their incomes separate.
We're glad Shakira gets full custody of her She-Wolf in the closet, and, of course, gets to keep all her hard earned income. Congrats gurl, you must be Waka Wak-ing on air!
