(Newser) – Shakira and her truth-telling hips have finally responded to a $100 million lawsuit filed by an ex-boyfriend last year, reports the Huffington Post. Antonio de la Rua, the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua, claims the pop superstar owes him for managing her career during their 11-year relationship. Now the singer has filed legal documents saying she was already famous when they met, and while he helped her make decisions, de la Rua was never her manager. She also claims he signed an agreement saying they'd each retain their own assets if they split.
