Yes, you heard it right.

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen is the world's highest-paid female model in the world according to Forbes magazine.

She acquired the Number One spot on Forbes' list of Top-earning Models of 2016. 

And what's surprising is that she has successfully been holding on to the title for quite a long time. Her career spanned over 20 years and according to Forbes she has made more money than any model since 2002.

A 36-year-old model, Gisele is a mother of two and retired from the runway two years ago. But post her retirement, the bombshell still continues to rake more moolah than the other models in the world.

Close on her heels is Brazilian model Adriana Lima who came second with $10.5 million in a year.

Models Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss tied for the third place with $ 10 million.

It's official that singer Rihanna and Drake are a couple. And to prove her love for him, Bad Gal Riri got inked.

She got a permanent shark tattoo, which is a cute reference to their date in an aquarium when Drake gifted her stuffed animal shark.

It was tattoo artist Keith McCurdy, who revealed the tattoo on Instagram with the caption: "Camo shark for my dear friend @badgalriri."

The 28-year pop-star has got a camouflage shark inked on her ankle that carries a "special significance" to their bond, reported E! Online.

This tattoo probably has come after Drake's love profession for the pop-star at the MTV VMAs recently.

The couple was then spotted together many a times, with the recent one being a party night at Miami, where the two were "kissing, hugging and dancing close to one another". 

Looks like Rihanna has sealed her relationship with Drake with this new tattoo on her bod.
