    Bar Refaeli entered Israel through Tel Aviv International airport and didn't declare her iPad at customs. Some how she got caught and the iPad was confiscated. She said that she thought that it was packed in a suitcase that got lost in transit. There is a $170.00 fine to paid for her to get it back.

    Riiight. She should have blamed it on her assistant and started crying endlessly but Israeli women are too tough to cry. Honestly, they should have waived the fine for having the iPad but charged her double for ever dating Leonardo DiCaprio. Seriously though, she has a history of tax avoidance so not sure why she didn't think customs wasn't going to be all over her -- get your mind out of the gutter. :D

    If I'm not mistaken, this one also managed to avoid the compulsory military service required of young citizens in Israel...not that I'd ever hold that against her. ;)
