NEW YORK (April 17, 2013)—Shakira, the singer and judge on "The Voice," is asking a New York judge to throw out a $250 million lawsuit filed by her ex-boyfriend, Antonio de La Rua.
De la Rua, the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua, dated Shakira for more than a decade before the two split up in 2011.
De la Rua has been waging an international war against his ex, saying he shaped the "Shakira brand."
Shakira said in court papers filed in Manhattan that she does not owe her success to de la Rua, who she says was just one of her numerous advisers.
