Supermodel Bar Refaeli Detained For Suspected Tax Evasion
Supermodel Bar Refaeli was detained then released by authorities in Israel for failing to report millions of dollars in income earned abroad.
According to BBC, Refaeli spent several hours at the Tel Aviv offices of the Israel Tax Authority on Wednesday for questioning. She was then released on $193,000 bail. Her mother, Tzipi, was also being investigated.

Refaeli dated Leonardo DiCaprio for a few years. She married Israeli billionaire Adi Ezra last September 2015.
Refaeli was the host of The X Factor Israel and is a model for Gap, Desigual and Escada.
