Israeli tax officials are alleging Thursday that supermodel Bar Refaeli and her mother, Tzipi, failed to report tens of millions of shekels in income earned for work done abroad.

Authorities lifted a gag order on Thursday permitting the press to report that Refaeli was questioned for hours by tax officials in Tel Aviv as part of an ongoing investigation into alleged financial irregularities.

Investigators also suspect that Refaeli was delinquent in reporting “celebrity perks” that she received, the value of which exceeded tens of thousands of shekels.

The Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court on Thursday agreed – with the consent of tax authorities – to release Refaeli on NIS 750,000 bail. She is also required to remain in the country and to leave a deposit of NIS 250,000 in cash.

Tzipi Refaeli, who is also being subject to questioning, has also been released on bail.
