Tomorrow’s Tax Day — if you didn’t know, you'd better get to crunching those numbers! — so it’s only fitting we do a little financial investigation of our own. One celebrity who’s had a bad run of it with the IRS? Supermodel mom Gisele Bundchen.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel has strutted her stuff up and down catwalks around the world, so she obviously has a sizable income to match. How much, she’s not telling — but it’s not quite as outrageous as you might have heard.
Forbes Magazine lists the world’s highest earning supermodels every year; and, for the seventh in a row, the 33-year-old Gisele took the No. 1 spot with an estimated wealth of $42 million. Unfortunately, the high profile article published last August got Gisele a little extra attention from the federal government. She says the IRS actually audited her because of the news!
“It’s sad,” the mother of two says of the situation, “because the people who write these things don’t have my bank account details. I do OK. I earn plenty, but not as much as they say.”
We think the Brazilian beauty might have a different understanding of what doing OK means than we do, but we see her point. It’s never fun to be audited!
Watch the video to hear what else Gisele has to say about her “normal” life as a mom.
