Bar Refaeli Arrested for Tax Evasion (Report)

Supermodel Bar Refaeli was reportedly arrested for tax evasion on Thursday (December 17) in Israel after it was discovered she lied about her residency to evade taxes on millions of dollars of income made abroad, the AFP reports.

The 30-year-old model is also accused of receiving benefits, such as cars and apartments, and not reporting to the government. Bar‘s mother has also been arrested for the same crime.

Bar and her mother reportedly made it appear as if she lived outside of Israel to pay less taxes. The statement also talks about many “celebrity discounts” she received and did not report.

Bar and her mother had to surrender their passports and cannot leave Israel for 180 days unless given permission.

According to reports, Bar and her mom were questioned for 12 hours on Wednesday (December 16), which lead to today’s arrest.

“There is no drama. In the end, this is just a civil dispute,” Bar‘s lawyer Giora Aderet told the NRG news website. “No one cheated anyone else. It will all clear up soon.”

We’ve reached out to Bar‘s rep for a comment.

    Lol. Karma.

    Sshe had hoped to marry Leo and become a US citizen so declared herself a non resident of Israel in 2009, to avoid taxes.

    Before that she married a relative to avoid her National Service.

    Many ultra rich people do that. Her hubby must have hidden businesses as well to be that rich. And meanwhile legal people who work for the state pay for every single cent

  • ChicagoMari

    She’s always seemed shady. Remember when she was busted by Customs for failing to declare items (including, IIRC, an iPad).

    Most people earn next to nothing and pay their taxes. These rich selfish privilege people who earn millions of dollars and lavish perks for just looking good deserve as much shame as they should get for not paying their taxes. Shame on her.

  • dalovelee

    She’s probably not the only rich celebrity trying to cheat on their taxes. the next time you look at the Golden Globes or Oscars remember 90% of them are filthy rich and they are all dodging their taxes. One may get nabbed here and there but without a doubt the temptation to keep all their millions is too much.
