Shakira's ex blocked from her accounts

04 July 2013, 15:35

New York - A judge in Geneva has rejected a request from Shakira's ex-boyfriend seeking access to one of her bank accounts.

Antonio de La Rua, the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua, claims he should have access to one of the Colombian singer's accounts because it holds most of the assets from their business partnership.

In documents dated 17 June and obtained by The Associated Press, the judge said Shakira is the account's sole owner.

De La Rua has worked as one of Shakira's business advisers. He said they established an oral agreement to work professionally following their romantic split in 2011.

The judge said de La Rua does not have enough evidence to prove the two reached a professional agreement and that there are no written agreements.

De La Rua has been waging an international fight against the singer, saying he shaped the "Shakira brand." He has filed lawsuits in New York and Los Angeles.

De La Rua dated Shakira, whose songs include Hips Don't Lie, for more than a decade and worked on some of her business deals.

Lawyers for De La Rua didn't immediately respond to emails seeking comment Wednesday.
