Rafaeli bar with mom Tzipi Rafaeli
Today, 35-year-old Israeli model Bar Rafaeli has signed a legal agreement in the event of tax evasion. As punishment, she received nine months of community service, but her mother, Tzipi Rafaeli, is a real prison sentence: Tzipi will go to jail for 16 months.
The trial against Rafael lasted 17 months. The star was accused of not paying taxes on her multi-million dollar income between 2009 and 2012, and her mother covered her up, buying real estate, cars and other things on her behalf. The moment in question in the lawsuit falls on the period of the life of the star when she met the famous actor Leonardo DiCaprio and lived in the United States.
Bar Rafaeli and Leonardo DiCaprio As an argument for his defense, Rafaeli cited the fact that he and the actor were family and at that time the United States, not Israel was his country of origin. Prosecutors, however, said the model and her mother used these arguments as cover to conceal tens of millions of dollars in income from tax authorities. Furthermore, they were able to establish that in Israel during this period, Rafaeli spent a total of about a year and a half, and his relationship with the actor cannot be equated with a civil marriage.
In addition, Rafaeli was charged with failing to report expensive gifts and discounts for celebrities whom she received during her life in the United States. Now, among other things, Bar and his mother have to pay a fine of $ 725,000 each, and also pay taxes to the Treasury of Israel for a total amount of $ 2.3 million.
