Shakira seemed in great spirits despite her legal woes. Keeping it casual with her travel attire, the Waka Waka singer slipped into a pair of daisy dukes, an oversized t-shirt, sunglasses, and a white fanny pack.

Spanish prosecutors filed documents on Friday, demanding the judge slap Shakira with 8 years in prison after allegedly failing to pay the government 14.5 million euros ($15 million) in taxes.

The filing came two days after Shakira rejected the deal she was offered and opted to go to trial to prove her alleged innocence.
