Model Bar Refaeli struck a plea deal after being pinned for tax evasion. Now, she’s officially been sentenced by an Israeli court.
Refaeli arrived at the Tel Aviv courthouse with her father Raffi yesterday to be sentenced on charges of evading paying taxes on nearly $10-million of income. Refaeli’s camp said the plea deal proved she hadn’t intentionally evaded paying taxes, but her mom Tzipi was more red-handed, charged with failure to report income, avoiding taxes and helping someone else evade tax payments.
The model will have to complete nine months of community service, while her mother – who also acted as her agent – will spend 16 months behind bars.
