In a statement, the high court of Catalonia where the singer lives with her partner Gerard Pique, she had been summoned to appear before a judge in Esplugues de Llobregat.
The 42-year-old is suspected of not paying taxes in Spain despite being a resident between 2011 and 2014.
Shakira who has in a relationship since 2011 Pique, with whom she has two sons, Shakira transferred her official residency to Spain in 2015. Until then, it was in the Bahamas.
But a spokesman for prosecutors in Barcelona told AFP last year that this didn’t “match reality” with her children and partner in Barcelona.
Shakira’s representatives insist that until 2014 she earned most of her money in international tours and didn’t live more than six months a year in Spain — a prerequisite to be an official tax-paying resident in the country.
