Brazilian supermodel, Gisele Bundchen, is one of the highest paid models in the world topping the Forbes' Supermodel Rich list seven years in a row; but now, the supermodel is being audited by the IRS.

In a new interview with Brazilian website MdeMulher, Bundchen admitted to being audited by the IRS after appearing on the Forbes List. Forbes estimated the Brazilian beauty earned $42 million in the year from June 2012 to June 2013.

The magazine reported that the 33-year-old "replaced Beyoncé as the face of H&M, reportedly beat out Rihanna for Chanel and took over David Yurman from Kate Moss." The report also added that Bundchen had contracts with companies like Pantene Pro-V, H&M, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Oral-B. However, Bundchen said the magazine's estimate was inaccurate.

"It's sad, because the people who write these things don't have my bank account details," the 33-year-old supermodel said. "I do OK, I earn plenty, but not as much as they say. I've already been audited by the IRS because of this list and, truthfully, whether I'm on this list or not doesn't interest me."

Despite troubles with the IRS, the mother-of-two and wife of NFL player Tom Brady insisted that making money is not her main priority.

Bundchen said: "I've got the same interests, the same day-to-day life, as any woman. I want to raise my children well, be a good wife and work. This is what I value: are my children educated, is my husband happy, are people feeling positive energy from me? There should be a magazine to quantify knowledge, understanding and love for people: That is power."
