Shakira

My Ex Ain't Getting

$100 Million from Me

EXCLUSIVE

The $100 million lawsuit Shakira's ex-lover filed against her is a joke because he has next to nothing to do with her mega-stardom -- this according to Shakira, who's refusing to give him a dime.

Shakira's firing back at Antonio de la Rua who filed a suit against her in NYC ... claiming he was her manager during their 11-year courtship, scored lucrative music deals for her, and is owed a big chunk of her earnings.

But in legal docs, Shakira says she was already an international star when she met Antonio in 2000 ... and even though she let him advise her on some decisions -- he was NEVER her manager and they NEVER signed anything stating he was.

In her filing, Shakira claims the only thing they did sign was a 2006 agreement in her native Colombia -- which made it clear they'd each keep their own assets if they split.

Shakira wants Antonio's lawsuit dismissed ASAP.

He didn't want to file in Colombia because he'd be laughed out of court...that's the only reason I can think of why he'd file in the U.S. Neither one of them are American or even residents here. He's always come across as a huge bum. His father is currently on trial for bribery and corruption. Apple didn't fall far from the tree.

STUPID to mix business and boyfriends. STUPID not to update and re-confirm such agreements either annually or least every 5 years. ONLY STUPID PEOPLE MIX THEIR CAREER $$$ with boyfriends and girlfriends!!! STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!!

Too bad these celebrities always find the most idiotic losers to date or marry.

He seems bitter...they weren't married and he was not officially her manager. Why is he trying to get her money. She has a family now get over it. She is a very giving person doesn't seem like she would try and rip him off...in 11 years he didn't think of asking for the money or official title? He very well benefited of her success
