She is currently enjoying a trip overseas which has included a visit to London.
But things have gone a little awry for jetsetter Bar Refaeli, who claims she was violated by a security officer at an airport.
The Israel supermodel tweeted about the ordeal to her fans, explaining that a female officer went a little too far with a routine patdown.
The brunette beauty told her followers that the incident left her contemplating the woman’s ‘sexual preferences’.
‘I got a security “patdown” by a woman at the airport that made me feel very uncomfortable and left no doubt about her sexual preferences,’ she wrote on the social networking site.
Refaeli previously received media attention for dating Leonardo DiCaprio and appearing on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition in 2009. (See next page which also features accompanying video interview.)
Here’s an interview Refaeli gave to Ellen DeGeneres after the magazine came out:
Refaeli reports that within the modeling world her figure is considered “curvy” and she was instructed not to lose weight for the Sports Illustrated shoot. She even claims that while eating a burger during a break SI encouraged her to eat dessert.
I suppose that’s progress since the early ’90s bleak modeling world of Kate Moss and heroin chic, right? Or is the situation in the modeling world with women starving themselves just as bad as it’s always been?
