Miranda Kerr Hands Over $8M In Jewels To Justice Department



Australian model Miranda Kerr has handed over $8.1 million worth of jewelry to the U.S. Justice Department a week after lawsuits said it was purchased for her by Malaysian financier Jho Low with allegedly misappropriated funds, according to her spokesman.

Kerr transferred the gifts Friday to government agents from her safe-deposit box in Los Angeles, the spokesman said.

“From the start of the inquiry, Miranda Kerr cooperated fully and pledged to turn over the gifts of jewelry to the government,” he said. “Ms. Kerr will continue to assist with the inquiry in any way she can.”

Kerr isn’t a defendant in the lawsuits.

The Justice Department declined to comment.

The department filed civil-forfeiture lawsuits this year and last year seeking assets it alleges were bought with money misappropriated from a Malaysian sovereign-wealth fund called 1Malaysia Development Bhd, or 1MDB.

The jewelry is among more than $1.7 billion worth of assets the Justice Department seeks; the assets also include a $250 million yacht, stakes in companies and luxury real estate in London, New York and Los Angeles.

1MDB has denied any wrongdoing and said it has found no evidence any of its money was misappropriated.

Now she banged that dude for nothin'. D'oh!

Lisa said...

So do you get to pick if you want jewels or money when yachting????

Guesser said...

I long doubted Enty's yachting stories, but if a very successful model and mother would do this, anyone would. And taking jewelry is of course a way to get around taxes etc. Her kid will be so proud of her.

Oh I'm sure she's not under investigation.

NoseyNeighbor said...

Hmph. I could have sworn I read somewhere that she received much more than that. Well, now it's Leo's turn.

Kate said...

I guess pimpin really ain't easy :(

Sidebar: the guys name is jho low? As in j lo bahhaha he's j from the yacht instead of the block!

So in other words,Kerr is now an acknowledged high class prostitute. She is married to an American billionaire, after being engaged to an Australian billionaire after divorcing a British movie star. How does a "serial monogamist" even know Malaysian financiers much less get gifts from them? Her madame must do very well and her Johns must have toddler fetishes - she looks like a three-year old.

Whore.

He already returned the artwork, but refused to give back the money he received for Wolf.

OKay said...

Nah, most sites are calling him her "ex-boyfriend" rather than the far more accurate "customer." But I am finding it hilarious that she spent a year doing that dude, and now she didn't even get paid. LMAO

Patreeki said...

Shit, I almost feel bad for the new husband as it sounds like she's done a number on him. Her insistence on remaining celibate until marriage after she's traveled all around the world to offer up the goods for some obese billionaire criminal. And then she gets publicly exposed for her hoeing LOL.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

LOL. That's public money, like tax-payers' money. She's just lucky most Commonwealth countries turned out okay, because if it were some legit developing country like those former Dutch colonies, this would look even worse...

hooha said...

Tax payer's money, as opposed to private investor public?
Like she knew where the money was coming from anyway. Enough with the Dutch v. British colonies.

hooha said...

I guess that makes Leo a whore too. Little hint, women who DON'T give it up, get more.

Hope the Snap guy signed a pre-nup.
She is trouble.
