Lawyer: Shakira left no choice but $100M NY suit

NEW YORK (AP) -- A lawyer for Shakira's ex-boyfriend Antonio de la Rua says the pop superstar didn't leave his client any other option but to file a New York lawsuit to demand that she pay him $100 million in compensation for managing her career.

William T. Reid IV says de la Rua tried to talk to Shakira about what he's owed, but the Colombian singer refused. Reid said Monday his client "didn't really want to do this."

De la Rua is the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua. He dated Shakira for more than a decade, and they split last year. He filed the lawsuit on Nov. 20.

Shakira's representative at the public relations company 42West, and her attorneys at the law firm Fox Horan & Camerini LLP, haven't responded to requests for comment.

Honestly, I think he is a little hurt that she dumped him after 10 years and just moved onto a younger, hotter man (Pique), but this is just childish!

So, he is not satisfied with the billions his father stole from Argentinians !!!  This guy is a low life, just like his politician father.  Thankfully Shakira opened her eyes and left him; now that she is more successful than she was when de la Rua "managed" her career, he wants to get money for the time he spent being her boyfriend ?!  He should be thankful he had the chance to spend all that time with her... de la Rua, just go back to your daddy and both of you share a nice cup of shut the f up !!!!
