    Pregnant Colombian pop star Shakira is facing a $100 million lawsuit from her ex-boyfriend over allegations their business partnership went south after their romantic relationship came to an end.

    Shakira and Antonio de la Rua split in 2010 after more than a decade together, but at the time, they promised they would remain friends and continue as business partners.

    That plan didn't seem to work out, since de la Rua has filed a lawsuit in New York accusing Shakira of breaking her vow to keep their business relationship going.

    De la Rua, son of former Argentine president Fernando de la Rua, has filed legal documents at Manhattan Supreme Court in New York City, claiming the singer asked him to take over "the business behind the Shakira brand" and he went on to secure her a $300 million deal with tour promoters Live Nation. He claims their business partnership continued for a year after their romantic relationship broke down, but he was fired in 2011.

    Team Shakira or Team de La Rua?
