Things are not looking good for stunning Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli. According to various media reports, she is facing charges of tax fraud.
According to media reports, She is reportedly accused of hiding more than £4.7m ($6 million) between the years 2009 and 2012, during which time she told tax officials in the United States that she was a resident of Israel. During that time, she allegedly rented and purchased apartments in Israel. She also allegedly concealed nearly £1.57m ($2 million) in income during the years 2005-07.
The 33-year-old’s parents are also poised to be charged with tax evasion and money laundering, and these counts were prompted by the same investigation, per report by TMZ . Refaeli’s lawyer insisted that Israeli officials are walking away from an agreement she brokered with them in 2009, and that the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl “hasn’t hidden anything.”
