Shakira Facing Possible Tax Evasion Investigation In Spain — Hope She Doesn’t Join All These Celebs Who’ve Had Tax Troubles!

Can't remember to forget you to pay your taxes, Shakira! According to Spanish tax authorities, the 40-year-old singer faces a possible investigation for allegedly failing to pay income tax between 2011 and 2014.

According to Spanish tax authorities, the 40-year-old singer faces a possible investigation for allegedly failing to pay income tax between 2011 and 2014. The country says the mom of two, who is said to be worth more than $200 million, lived in the country during those years. Sources close to the celeb say Shakira has done nothing wrong and that she has always fulfilled her tax obligations. Not to mention, she was outside Spain most of that time. If the Waka Waka songstress is found to have moved to Barcelona before 2015, her tax bill could be tens of millions of dollars.

ICYMI: Apparently The "Tax Cut" Bill Also Tries To Make Abortion Illegal…

This "tax cut" bill is looking worse and worse every day… The GOP is trying hard to jam a bill through the Senate, having already passed it in the House, supposedly all about tax cuts.

The GOP is trying hard to jam a bill through the Senate, having already passed it in the House, supposedly all about tax cuts. Related: Former Trump Campaign Coordinator Will Plead Guilty To Child Sex Trafficking Charge But so far we've seen this monstrosity: - INCREASES taxes on many people who make less than $200,000/year while greatly LOWERING them on billionaires - REMOVES tax exemptions for teachers, grad students, and the chronically ill while ADDING them for private jets and golf courses - REMOVES the individual health insurance mandate from Obamacare, something experts agree is just another way to kill it since they can't repeal it - is mostly an effort to keep billionaire donors giving money to Republicans (Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and Chris Collins have all admitted as much publicly) But this may be the craziest part yet! Apparently this bill, which again the Republicans are selling as "tax cuts" -- actually has language in it to define an "unborn child" in order to establish "personhood," something anti-abortion activists have been attempting as a way to get Roe v Wade overturned. The excuse is to give parents a way to name their future children as beneficiaries on college savings accounts, but that's something people can already do without this legal language. Sarah Lipton-Lubet, vice president for reproductive health and rights at the National Partnership for Women and Families, tells Huffington Post what this really is all about: "The hope is that if they throw enough anti-abortion language at the wall something is going to stick. It's a dubious strategy. It's an affront to women." Well, attacking, discrediting, and minimizing women is pretty much the GOP's MO. This is what's more important to Donald Trump than whether a Senator is alleged to have molested a 14-year-old. [Image via CNN.].....»»

Rosie O"Donnell Literally Offered Republican Senators $2 Million In CASH To Vote Against GOP Tax Bill!

The comedian took to Twitter on Tuesday to offer millions in cash to senators who vote against the "criminal" tax bill. Her tweets specifically targeted Republican Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine, who received offers of $2 million EACH -- in cash (!!) -- from the TV personality to vote "nay." Related: Eminem Talks Trump & Finding Dates On... GRINDR! In her tweet to Collins, Rosie even specified that the senator could give her a call if she wanted to negotiate a number -- but sadly, Rosie's Twitter lobbying didn't pay off. Early Wednesday morning, the Senate passed the $1.5 trillion tax bill, with both Collins and Flake voting in favor of the legislation that slashes tax rates for corporations and provides new breaks for private businesses. The bill will now go back to the House to overlook a procedural issue, and, with the passing of a revote, will head to POTUS's desk. Related: John McCain Tries To Hit 3M Followers & It Hilariously Backfires! Offering money to a lawmaker in exchange for changing a vote is technically illegal, but like all good lobbyists, Rosie quipped that she was really just offering lawmakers "a Christmas gift"... in exchange for changing a vote.

Shakira Skips Out On Tax In Spain

There’s nothing wrong with a little equality joining the likes of Wesley Snipes and Mike Sorrentino. She’s under investigation for forgetting to pay Uncle Se Habla Espanol Sam in Spain from the years 2011 to 2014. It’s hard not to feel bad for her when she’s making all of that money, sometimes remembering you’re still obligated to pay taxes can slip your mind. Her representatives are denying all obligations. Several months ago, Shakira and other famous music artists, such as Madonna and U2 frontman Bono, were named in the “Paradise Papers” leaks that detailed offshore tax arrangements of high-profile individuals. For a woman who manages to infiltrate every radio station worldwide you would think she would remember to pay tax. Having a warrant out for your arrest in multiple locations across the world kind of makes it hard to escape. You can’t change your name and move to Mexico if you already owe them too. If she’s not paying Spain I can just imagine who else she’s handed IOUs to. Backing out on money owed for living in Barcelona is brave. Spain just made the news for beating up Catalan voters for trying to separate themselves. Just imagine the treatment someone like Shakira would receive in jail. The pretty ones don’t last long.

The 36-year-old Jersey Shore star faces up to five years in prison for his charge of tax evasion. His brother Marc, who worked with him, also faces up to three years in jail for aiding in the preparation of a false and fraudulent tax return. “What the defendants admitted to today, quite simply, is tantamount to stealing money from their fellow taxpayers.

Like an indie rapper trying to get noticed or your teen cousin who cares way too much about social media, the Republican told followers to "spread the word" so he could reach that healthy 3M.

On Friday, Democrats requested more time to review the nearly 500-page bill they received hours before the vote, but were denied the request. McCain, who dramatically called for "bipartisan support" for the health care bill earlier this year, was one of the 51 Republicans who voted in favor of the bill.

As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public,” the update reads. “The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun.” Read the full outline inside… We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public. The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun. We said from the outset that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle were keen to make sure that members of the public would have the opportunity to feel part of the celebrations on their wedding day. This is their way of expressing their gratitude for the messages of support they have received from around the UK, the Commonwealth, Ms. Markle’s home country of the United States, and right around the world. In today’s briefing I want to share more details of what people can expect to see in the day’s leading up to the wedding, and on the day itself, and explain what the public can expect in Windsor. The first thing I would like to share is that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle’s parents to Windsor for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day. Both of the bride’s parents will have important roles in the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle. Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George’s Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion. In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day. As we said back in November, this wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes Royal Weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. We have been announcing details over the last couple of months and in the final week ahead of the wedding you can expect to hear more about the arrangements, including: The Instrument of Consent; Details of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys; The work of florist Philippa Craddock and the Crown Estate gardeners who have been growing and preparing the flowers that will fill the church; An update from Claire Ptak, the baker who will make the wedding cake, and the chefs who have been working in the Palace kitchens to make the final preparations and; We will publish the full Order of Service on the website on Saturday morning so members of the public can follow the service at home. I will now take you through the high level outline of what you can expect to see from the evening of Friday 18th May. The key moment for the day before will be the arrival of the bride at her accommodation. We expect this to happen early evening. On the day itself we expect Windsor to be very busy. The council has worked with partners including Thames Valley Police to plan what will be a fantastic day of celebrations. As the Royal Borough of Windsor has said, work is well underway to ensure the occasion is a memorable and joyous one for all involved and they are working closely with a wide range of partners. Rail operators will be putting on extra trains and there will be park and walk and park and float services to help people get into town. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and book all travel arrangements early so they can make the most of their trip. I would very much appreciate the media’s assistance in spreading the message that visitors to Windsor will have a chance to be part of a very special day, but those who will be heading to the town really do need to plan their journeys carefully. The Royal Borough has confirmed that preparations include: A 6,000 space pre-booked car parking area at the Review Ground, just off the Long Walk; Food stalls and facilities, including big screens showing live footage of the wedding and Procession, on the Long Walk and in Alexandra Gardens; Viewing areas along the whole Procession Route (Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road and the Long Walk); A team of 140 Royal Borough Ambassadors have volunteered to help steward the event and assist visitors throughout the day; The town centre will be decorated with bunting and ceremonial banners along parts of the Procession Route and; Live entertainment from local groups throughout the town centre. In order to make sure everyone can get through expected traffic, the members of the public who have been invited to be inside the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding will be arriving from around 0900hrs. As a reminder, 1,200 people have been nominated by Lord Lieutenants from across the country for their work supporting their communities. Many of these people are sharing their stories with their local media and supporters – the couple are very pleased that their wedding has provided a platform to celebrate the inspiring work of community and youth leaders from around the UK. The first thing these people gathered will see on the morning of the wedding will be the arrival of guests between 0930hrs and 1100hrs. Guests will be arriving at the Round Tower by coach and will be seen walking to the South Door of St George’s Chapel. Members of The Royal Family will begin to arrive from 1120hrs, and enter St George’s Chapel via the Galilee Porch. Some will be on foot, and others will arrive by car. Prince Harry and his brother The Duke of Cambridge will arrive at St George’s Chapel most likely by foot and will enter via the West Steps. This will allow Their Royal Highnesses to acknowledge all of the people gathered in the Castle precincts, including the 200 charity representatives gathered in the Horseshoe Cloister at the bottom of the steps. Also around the time Royal Family arrivals begin, a pooled media facility will cover Ms. Markle and Ms. Ragland’s departure from the bride’s overnight location. We expect the journey into the Castle to take them along part of the Long Walk, allowing members of the public gathered there to see the car as it passes. There will also be a brief stop at the Castle where Ms. Ragland will head onto the Chapel and Ms. Markle will be joined by some of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys before she continues her journey to the church, where she will enter via the West Steps. The Service will take around an hour, and we look forward to announcing more details of this in the weeks ahead. After the Service has concluded, the newly married couple will process out of the church and acknowledge the 200 representatives of Prince Harry’s charities gathered in the Cloister. The couple are delighted that these people who will be such an important part of their official work in the years to come will be the first people they see after their wedding. As the couple step into their Carriage, close family members will gather on the West Steps to wave them off on their Procession. As a reminder, we expect the Carriage Procession to take just under 25 minutes. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to this part of the day. It will be their chance to express their gratitude for the goodwill and warm wishes they have received from all quarters in the months since their engagement. Members of the congregation will file out of the church onto the grass to see the start of the Procession before walking to the reception at St George’s Hall. All guests will be attending the reception. The public elements of the event will be over at this stage. The final thing you can expect to see is the Bride and Groom departing Windsor Castle for the evening reception at Frogmore House. In the days that follow, we will facilitate interviews with some of those who have been involved in the wedding, as happened in 2011, for example with the hairdresser and dressmaker. The formal photographs, which will be taken by Alexi Lubomirski, will be released during the week......»»

Timothee Chalamet to Donate Salary from Woody Allen Movie

Timothee Chalamet worked with Woody Allen on the upcoming movie A Rainy Day in New York and he just released a statement about working with the director.

Many actors have been called out for working with the filmmaker as he has been accused of sexual assault by his daughter Dylan Farrow. “This year has changed the way I see and feel about so many things; it has been a thrilling and, at times, enlightening education. I have, to this point, chosen projects from the perspective of a young actor trying to walk in the footsteps of more seasoned actors I admire. But I am learning that a good role isn’t the only criteria for accepting a job —that has become much clearer to me in the past few months, having witnessed the birth of a powerful movement intent on ending injustice, inequality and above all, silence,” Timothee wrote in his statement on Instagram. “I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer,” he added. “I’m not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations. But what I can say is this: I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities: TIME’S UP, The LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN. I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.” Timothee is currently getting Oscar buzz for his work in Call Me By Your Name. He stars alongside Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning in the upcoming Woody Allen film. See photos of Timothee filming A Rainy Day in New York in the gallery….....»»
