Apparently, the former boyfriend of pop star Shakira thinks he deserves a huge payout.

Antonio de la Rua in a court in California has slapped the 37-year-old Voice coach with a $100 million lawsuit on April 12, according to court documents. The reason for the lawsuit is that De la Rua claims that he helped the singer to building the “Shakira” brand and was the man behind her top hits such as, “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Waka Waka”.

Earlier, last November, De la Rue filed a $250 million lawsuit against Shakira in New York. Shakira also filed proceedings against the lawsuit on March 28 requesting the court to dismiss the lawsuit because De la Rue has no jurisdiction over her and has failed to showcase an actionable claim.

Shakira, who became a mother on January 22, also stated that she doesn’t believe her former boyfriend needs to be thanked for her success, and as per legal documents, she said that she met De la Rue during a gig in Argentina in 2000, and by that time she was already a recognized and well-known artist with an established international singing career.
