NEW YORK (AP) -- Pop star Shakira says her hips don't lie but her ex-boyfriend does.

The singer and judge on "The Voice" is asking a New York judge to throw out a $250 million lawsuit filed by her ex, Antonio de La Rua (ROO'-ah).

De la Rua is the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua. He dated Shakira for more than a decade before they split in 2011.

De la Rua has been waging an international war against his ex, saying he shaped the "Shakira brand."

The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/Z2MeNZ ) that Shakira said in court papers filed in Manhattan that she does not owe her success to de la Rua.

She says he was just one of her numerous advisers.
