Celebrity Law Update 7-12-13 - Shakira's ex boyfriend blocked from her accounts

Shakira’s ex boyfriend has been blocked from accessing her bank accounts by a court in Geneva. In a legal battle between Antonio de la Rua (her ex-boyfriend) and Shakira being played in a courtroom, this happens to be the latest turn. Antonio and Shakira have lawsuits against each other in Europe, the Bahamas, Los Angeles, and New York. Sounds like Celeb Lawyers dream client. Apparently this last one is also over intellectual property.

Antonio claims that he was instrumental in developing Shakira’s image and personal brand during their decade-long relationship. He claimed ownership rights to Shakira’s Swiss bank account which holds a majority of the assets he claims resulted from their alleged verbal agreement(s). Now there will be less money in those accounts for sure.
