Supermodel Bar Refaeli sentenced to 9 months of community service

Israel Top Model Bar Refaeli Sentenced In Tax Evasion Case

Top model Bar Refaeli was recently sentenced to nine-month community service, while her mother, who acted as her agent, got a 16-month imprisonment punishment after a prolonged tax evasion case.

Rafaeli was potted at the Tel Aviv courthouse in a beige T-shirt and wearing a light blue surgical face mask.

The plea bargain accepted by the court also requires that Bar and Tzipi pay a $1.5 million fine as well as all of their back taxes.

BERLIN, GERMANY-MAY 23: Model Bar Refaeli attends the Mazda Spring Cocktail at the Sony Center on May 23, 2019 in Berlin, Germany.

The former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model, now a popular TV personality in Israel, pleaded guilty to offences related to her global earnings in a plea bargain that included her mother.

Still, she remains a popular TV personality and pitch-woman whose image is ubiquitous on highway billboards throughout the country. The "X Factor Israel" host also withdrew the appeals she had pending before the Israeli Supreme Court and the Tel Aviv District Court relating to the years 2009-2012. It was during the height of her popularity as a model getting high-profile campaigns, gracing the cover of a famous Sports Illustrated swimsuit, and as the girlfriend of Hollywood A-list actor, Leonardo DiCaprio.

BAR REFAELI, before CORONAVIRUS, publicly says that he is'drunk' and does not reveal himself with a retreat photo.


Israeli taxation law determines residency mostly upon whether the individual spent almost all of their calendar year from the nation.

The bathing suit model blended discussion when she sidestepped her two years of compulsory Israeli military assistance by wedding a companion of her father's, just to separate from him a brief time later. The parents have been accused of downplaying her ties with Israel.

However, an Israeli court appealed that Refaeli's relationship with the 45-year-old actor is not considered a "family unit", so she can not claim his U.S. residence and avoid paying taxes in Israel.

Refaeli pleaded guilty to tax evasion under a plea bargain, per Reuters.

Ms Refaeli (35), a mother of three who is married to an Israeli businessman, had contended she was living overseas at the time and exempt from any Israeli tax bills.

They argued that for 2009 and 2010, Bar Refaeli had been living in the USA while dating DiCaprio and, therefore, did not have to pay Israeli income tax, but their argument was rejected by a judge in 2019 who agreed with authorities that she was actually based in Tel Aviv.
