Shakira -- NOBODY Stole My Jewelry!

Shakira was NOT the victim of a gutsy ring-stealing fan in Mexico last week ... despite widespread reports to the contrary and a viral video which appeared to capture the crime ... her publicist tells TMZ.

Shakira's publicist, Joseph Carozza, tells us, “There is no truth to this report. A fan grabbed her hand and she looked down. Her ring is still visible on her hand as she continued to walk through the crowd.”

Case closed.
