After several hours of questioning at the Tel Aviv offices of the Israel Tax Authority, she was released on ￡129,000 bail.
The model, one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s most famous ex-girlfriends, has been accused of not reporting the millions of dollars she earned abroad and the celebrity benefits she received, including a Range Rover and Lexus.
Authorities also accused Refaeli of trying to hide that she was a resident of Israel by living in homes registered under the names of her mother and brother. Israelis who are non-residents are exempt from declaring income earned abroad.
Refaeli’s lawyer denied the allegations, saying, "There is no drama. In the end, this is just a civil dispute. No one cheated anyone else. It will all clear up soon.”
