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.
Hey guys, lighten up on Blondie ,..after all it was "herself that made herself to a degree too ,"..if la Rua was on salray , and cashed the checks , then he was compensated for his work under Contract ,.." regardless of what she made under for herself ", and also what she has made for herself under and with her own talent !!! ... Wake Up !! " I think I smell a sniviling little prick that just feels a little vengence , because he lost his Gravy Train !! " And is also using his Stature from " who be Boo in Whoville within this lawsuit ,.... " Please ,... you're certainly not the first guy to be thrown in the DITCH by a women ,.. get over it , go back to Sth. Amer. , and have mommy and Daddy take care of you !!!! I'm so sick of all this BS with celebrities lately ,.... of which I really don't care , but this is their life ,..and any A hole that just uses getting caught by police , just for publicity needs to have their heads examened ,..IE; Lindsey Lohan,.. she ought to be really put in jail for at least 10 years !! Just saying ,...what has happened to our best from the past !!!?????

Tell the bastard to get a real job (9-5 pm) like everybody else. If he is really a real business manager, he has already shown that he has a Phd in pimping, he should find employment in no time.
