Gisele Bündchen is admitting she does "OK" when it comes to making money.

In a new interview with Brazilian website MdeMulher, the 33-year-old supermodel reveals that her finances were targeted by the IRS after she topped Forbes' list of highest-paid models!

"It's sad, because the people who write these things don't have my bank account details," the Brazilian beauty 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."

Bündchen topped Forbes' 2013 list back in August. At the time, the mag reported that she took home $42 million in earnings from June 2012 to June 2013 from contracts with companies like Pantene Pro-V, H&M , Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Oral-B.

Despite her troubles with the IRS, Tom Brady's other half insists making money isn't her first priority.

"This is what I value: are my children educated, is my husband happy, are people feeling positive energy from me?" she told MdeMulher. "There should be a magazine to quantify knowledge, understanding and love for people: that is power."
