International music sensation Shakira finds herself caught in a financial whirlwind as she contemplates shelling out an eye-watering $15 million to relocate her luxurious car collection across the Atlantic. This hefty bill arises in the aftermath of the star’s recent settlement deal with prosecutors, just hours prior to her tax fraud trial, and amidst the ongoing legal proceedings of her divorce from Spanish soccer star Gerard Piqué.

The celebrated couple, Shakira, 46, whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, and Piqué, 36, publicly announced their separation in June 2022. In a joint statement, they expressed regret, emphasizing the well-being of their children as their highest priority and urging respect for their privacy during this challenging time.

However, as Piqué made his new relationship with 23-year-old Clara Chia Marti public, Shakira responded with a song titled ‘Out of Your League.’ In the lyrics, she seemingly takes a swipe at her ex-partner and his new girlfriend, singing, “Zero grudge baby, I wish you good luck with my supposed replacement. You’re so weird I can’t even recognize you. I’m worth two of 22 [year old]. You’ve traded a Ferrari for a Twingo.” Piqué’s response? Showing up to work in a Twingo.

The latest development in this celebrity saga reveals that Shakira’s fleet of high-end cars, including a Mercedes SL550, a Mercedes S-Class, a Tesla Model S, a Jeep Wrangler, a BMW X6, an Audi Q7, a Mercedes SLK250, a Mini Cooper, an Audi A7 Sportback, and a $20,000 SEAT Leon, currently rests at her and Piqué’s former family home in Barcelona.

To ensure continued access to her prized car collection from her new base in the US, Shakira faces a staggering $15.2 million bill for shipping them across the ocean. While some might argue that selling the cars and acquiring new ones would be a more sensible financial move, Shakira seems undeterred by the financial implications.
