Lionel Messi’s appeal against allegations of tax evasion has been thrown out by a Barcelona court and the Argentina star will now stand trial.

The Blaugrana forward and his father and agent, Jorge Messi, are accused of defrauding authorities over a tax amount totalling €4.1 million between 2006 and 2009.

It is alleged that Messi’s image rights were sold by Jorge – who assumed full responsibility when the case began – using companies in countries like Belize and Uruguay to avoid Spanish tax obligations.

A judge at a court in Gava, near Barcelona, determined in October 2014 that the 27-year-old would have to face trial over the allegations, despite his pleas that he was neither guilty nor fully aware of the suggested impropriety.
Messi immediately outlined his intention to appeal in a statement which reads: “Through this press release I want to communicate that, after having received the order of the court of Gava and following the professional advice of my solicitors, I have decided to appeal against it.”

That appeal, heard by the Court of Barcelona, was rejected on Wednesday, however. In addition to his claims of innocence, Messi and his father also made a voluntary payment of just over €5m to the authorities last year.

The case has cast a cloud over Messi despite his blistering form on the pitch which helped Barca achieve a domestic and continental treble, which was completed with Saturday’s 3-1 defeat of Juventus in the Champions League final in Berlin.

The Argentine has been particularly impressive since the turn of the year after a public falling out with coach Luis Enrique.

A $150,000 custom-made Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa dress, worn by actress Lupita Nyong’o at the Oscars, has been stolen in Hollywood.

The dress, studded with 6,000 natural white pearls, was taken from the London Hotel in West Hollywood when Nyong’o was out of the room.

The Kenyan won best supporting actress last year for Twelve Years a Slave and was a presenter at Sunday’s ceremony.

People magazine named her the most beautiful person of 2014.

Sheriff’s Lt William Nash said the dress appeared to be stolen on Wednesday evening and officers were checking CCTV footage.

On the red carpet on Sunday, Nyong’o, 31, told Associated Press: “I’m just wearing my diamonds and pearls. My homage to (musician) Prince.”

She added of the dress: “We talked about it being fluid and liquid. I wanted it to be an homage to the sea.”

Madonna falls off stage

Posted: February 27, 2015 in Entertainment

Pop star Madonna fell off the stage during her performance at the 2015 Brit Awards, on a night that saw Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran each win two prizes.

Madonna tumbled down a set of stairs and landed awkwardly, apparently after a dancer tried to remove a cape she was wearing at the start of her routine.

But she recovered and returned to continue her song, Living For Love.

The 56-year-old issued a statement later saying she was “fine” and that her cape had been “tied too tight”.

“Nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up,” she wrote on Instagram, referencing the lyrics to her song. “Thanks for your good wishes!”

According to BBC
