    Model Bar Refaeli suspected of tax evasion in Israel

    Jerusalem (AFP) - Israel's most famous model Bar Refaeli is suspected of tax evasion and will be called into a hearing ahead of her possible indictment, authorities said Thursday.

    The 33-year-old could be charged pending the hearing, while her parents are also suspected of money laundering, a justice ministry statement said.

    She is suspected of not declaring income received abroad between 2009 and 2012 at a value of some 23 million shekels ($6.1 million, 5.4 million euros).

    Her parents Tzipi and Rafi Refaeli are suspected of money laundering and are also being called in for a hearing.

    Jerusalem (AFP) - Israel's most famous model Bar Refaeli is suspected of tax evasion and will be called into a hearing ahead of her possible indictment, authorities said Thursday.

    The 33-year-old could be charged pending the hearing, while her parents are also suspected of money laundering, a justice ministry statement said.

    She is suspected of not declaring income received abroad between 2009 and 2012 at a value of some 23 million shekels ($6.1 million, 5.4 million euros).

    Her parents Tzipi and Rafi Refaeli are suspected of money laundering and are also being called in for a hearing.

    "The prosecutor's office has informed Bar Refaeli, Tzipi Refaeli and Rafi Refaeli that it intends to charge them for fiscal fraud," the statement said.

    Israeli authorities suspect her and her mother of having lied about residing abroad in order to pay less in taxes.

    She is also suspected of living in luxury apartments registered in the names of her mother and brother, as well as not declaring cars made available to her.

    She was already detained and questioned in 2015.

    It is not the first time the swimsuit model, who in the past dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio, allegedly found loopholes in Israeli law to her benefit.

    She had in the past stirred controversy when she evaded her two years of mandatory military service by marrying a friend of her father's, only to divorce him a short while later.

    She is now married to Israeli businessman Adi Ezra.

    i think it's the same case.
    what's weird here is that the case also involves her parents. she should pay her taxes but at the same time, i wonder if this isn't also a case of israel unfairly taxing her? cause that happens a lot in other countries with people who spend a lot of time abroad or are kind of live in several places.
    tax laws are a pain in the ass. if she's earning most of her money abroad, it probably makes sense for her to no longer legally reside in israel. countries have super complicated tax laws and some of them end up double taxing you if you are a citizen but live most of the time elsewhere. a close family friend retired to a country in europe, but because of the tax laws, she can only spend 6 months minus one day there per year, and spends the rest of the time with her children or traveling because otherwise she would end up being taxed twice because despite the tax agreement between the country she retired to and the country she worked in and gets her pension from, she would still end up being taxed at a higher rate than if she lived in either one of those countries, which is bullshit. to make it even more complicated, her husband is from another country which makes the whole tax thing even more complex.

    Isn't Shakira going through a similar thing with Spain? Seems like you need a team of lawyers in every country to wade through this stuff. I didn't understand why her parents were being brought into this except that they're actually accused of money laundering and she's only accused of the tax issues. I'm actually more curious about the parents' story - are they lifelong shady types or were they trying to launder some of Bar's money because they didn't know what else to do with it?
