Why was Bar Refaeli sentenced to do community service?

The Israeli supermodel was sentenced on Sunday, September 13, to nine months of community service. Can you believe it? Also, her mother was convicted of 16 months in prison. The two were pleaded guilty of tax evasion and false tax reporting. Scroll down to know more about this!

  • Bar Refaeli was born on June 4, 1985.
  • She began modeling when she was eight months in commercials.
  • The model is married to Adi Ezra, a 45-year-old businessman with whom she has three children. Before him, she was in an intermittent relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio.
  • Bar and her mother were condemned in July on offenses of evading paying taxes on income nearing $10 million.

On September 13, Refaeli got into the Tel Aviv courthouse with her father, Raffi, her mother, Zipi, and her lawyers. The judge convicted the model and her mother as her agent, for prosecution on allegations of tax evasion and false tax reporting.

In Israel, the tax law determines the residency primarily upon whether if the person spent most of the year in the country. Leonardo DiCaprio's ex-girlfriend claimed that she hadn't spent most of the year in there, so she was needless to declare her income. The judge rejected her claim, and now she also has to pay any amount that the tax authorities determine are due, in addition to a $1.4 million fine.

It is for sure a tough moment for all the family, but we learn from mistakes too! We hope that time goes fast so that all of them can be back together soon and forget about all this situation.
