Supermodel Bar Refaeli Has Been Arrested For Tax Evasion

She was released on $193,000 bail.

Israeli tax authorities aren’t cutting Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli any slack for her good looks.

On Thursday, the host of Israel’s X Factor was released on $193,000 bail after being detained under suspicion that she had been hiding income from the tax man, according to a report in BBC News.

Refaeli allegedly avoided taxes by making it appear as if she weren’t an Israeli resident, when in fact she lived in apartments held in the names of her brother and mother. Israeli citizens who live abroad are not required to report income to the government.

“There is no drama. In the end, this is just a civil dispute. No one cheated anyone else. It will all clear up soon,” lawyer Giora Aderet reportedly told the NRG news website.

Fortune has reached out to the Israel Tax Authority, as well as a representative for Refaeli and will update this story if they respond.
