Gisele Got Audited Because of Her Spot on the Forbes Highest-Paid Models List

Apparently the supermodel isn't quite as rich as the magazine let on.

With a quick glance at her recent client list -- H&M, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Pantene Pro-V -- it's obvious that Gisele Bündchen is raking in some serious cash.

In fact, for the seventh year in a row, Bündchen topped the 2013 Forbes magazine list of the world's highest paid models, and holds the number one spot on the list of "The Money Girls." Her finances were in the news once again recently when it was revealed that she and her husband Tom Brady just put their Los Angeles compound on the market for a whopping $50 million.

Forbes reported that the Brazilian supermodel was worth $42 million as of June 2013 -- but according to Bündchen, not only is the figure inaccurate, it also may have gotten her into some trouble with the IRS.

While the model was in her native Brazil for Sao Paulo Fashion Week, she talked to a local press outlet about how her top-earning status got her flagged during tax season. "I was audited in the US because of these lists," Bündchen said in Portuguese. "Sincerely, if I’m on top of the rankings or not, I don’t care either way."
