Model and ex-girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, Bar Refaeli, could be indicted for tax evasion
Israeli model and ex-girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, Bar Refaeli, is reportedly suspected of tax evasion and is facing a possible indictment along with her family.
According to an AFP report (via Yahoo), the 33-year-old supermodel was told that, pending a hearing, she will be charged with tax evasion, money laundering and perjury. She is accused of allegedly hiding 23 million shekels ($6.1 million) from Israeli authorities between 2009 and 2012.
The Jerusalem Post reports that she has been under investigation for years and was even brought in for questioning in 2015, but no charges were filed.
While dating DiCaprio, reportedly on and off between 2007 and 2011, the model allegedly lied about her place of residence, telling United States authorities that she was a resident of Israel and tax officials in Israel that she was residing in the U.S.
Part of the lie allegedly included claiming to be living with “The Wolf of Wall Street” star, while actually living at family-owned residences in Tel Aviv. As a result, her parents are also reportedly likely to face indictments.
Neither representatives for Refaeli nor DiCaprio immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment.
