The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer had moved from the Bahamas to Barcelona in 2015 with boyfriend Gerard Pique and their two sons, but tax authorities believe she was already living in Barcelona.

Prosecutor José Miguel Company said Tuesday that a decision to press charges is expected in mid-June.

Anna Forastier, a spokeswoman for auditing firm PwC, said Shakira had hired the company during the investigation.

In late December, Shakira postponed her El Doraldo World Tour until June.

“To my dear fans and friends, I wanted to write one more letter to express my gratitude to all of you for the immeasurable love and support that you have sent me these past few weeks,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.

“You have made me feel that my voice is not only mine but also yours, and that it has a purpose. There were times when your prayers and messages of affection and encouragement along with those of my family were the only thing buoying my spirits.”

Whenever, wherever — tax authorities WILL find you.
