Fans explain meaning of Shakira's 'no fue culpa tuya' Instagram post

Fans explain meaning of Shakira's 'no fue culpa tuya' Instagram post

The Colombian singer left fans guessing with her cryptic Instagram post

Shakira sent fans into a frenzy this week when she shared a cryptic post to Instagram.

The Colombian megastar took to social media last night (6 October) and posted a very short video, which ran with the words 'No fue culpa tuya' across it.

Aside from the sounds of a typewriter in the background, there was nothing more to it. Mysterious eh?

Since then, the singer's fans have been trying desperately to work out what the hell she was on about.

The first thing some internet sleuths did was to chuck the words into Google to see what the literal translation was.

And apparently, 'no fue culpa tuya' is Spanish for 'it wasn't your fault'.

Now, it's safe to say that it's not been the easiest few months for Shakira.

Firstly, she recently went through a high profile break up from her partner, Spanish footballer Gerard Pique.

In a statement at the time, the couple, who have two kids together, said: "We regret confirming that we're splitting up. For the welfare of our children, which is our top priority, we ask for respect for our privacy. Thank you for understanding."

And on top of that, it was recently confirmed that the popstar could face up to eight years in prison after a judge ordered a trial into tax evasion.

The 'Wherever, Whenever' singer has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax office out of €14.5 million (£12.2 million) on the income she earned between between 2012 and 2014.

Shakira is accused of lying about where she lived during those years as well as using a complex offshore corporate structure to avoid paying tax.

She rejected a plea deal, as lawyers claimed the songstress was 'absolutely certain of her innocence'.

Spanish state prosecutors demanded the eight-year jail sentence if she went to trial and was convicted.

And in addition to the prison sentence, Shakira could be charged a €23 million (£19.2 million) fine if she is found guilty at the end of the trial.

Shakira's personal struggles have led her fans to suggest that there's a much deeper meaning to the words, with some offering words of support to her.

"You're a badass and you'll get better," said one.

"I feel something brutal is coming," added another.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens next.
