According to de La Rua, he and Shakira made an oral agreement to continue their work relationship after their breakup in 2011 and that he remain one of Shakira's business advisers.
Last month, the judge ruled that de la Rua didn't have sufficient evidence to prove the aforementioned agreement and that Shakira is the sole owner of the account.
Shakira and de La Rua broke up in early 2011 after dating for more than 11 years. At the time of the split, Shakira said, "Since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship. Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now."
