Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr recently turned the subject of media attention after an altercation at her Malibu mansion on Friday morning. The unfortunate incident left a private security guard stabbed in the eye and an intruder shot in the head multiple times.

Fortunately, per TMZ, Kerr was not home at the time of the violent confrontation. It is also unclear if Flynn, her 5-year-old son to ex-husband Orlando Bloom, was at the mansion during the terrifying shooting and stabbing incident.

While it is still unconfirmed if robbery is the motive of the suspect, the event sparked security concerns for A-listers like Kerr. It also ignited interest on the supermodel's fortune. How rich is the former Victoria's Secret angel?

Kerr's Net Worth for 2016

Kerr consistently ranked on the Forbes' annual list of the world's highest earning models since 2008. This 2016, the charming supermodel occupied the tenth spot of the list with an estimated net worth of $6 million. According to the business magazine, majority of her fortune came from her retained lucrative contracts from Wonderbra and Escada fragrance.

Moreover, celebrity net worth estimating websites have bigger projections on Kerr's wealth this year. The Richest pegged her 2016 net earnings at 18 million, while Celebrity Net Worth valued her fortune at $45 million. She accumulated her wealth from money-spinning endorsement deals, magazine cover appearances, runway stints, TV guesting and other modeling engagements.

Kerr's Lucrative Projects

Kerr started 2016 by fronting the spring/summer campaign of Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. She also did a nude pictorial for the January/February cover of Australian Harper's Bazaar, which was later pulled out after igniting criticisms.

In March, the 33-year-old supermodel was named as the face for the fall campaign of Joe Fresh. She also appeared in the international covers of Harper's Bazaar, Elle, L'Officiel and Madame Figaro in the same month.

Kerr was among the supermodels who opened Jeremy Scott's Resort 2017 show for Moschino. She later appeared as a guest mentor on "Australia's Next Top Model" Cycle 10.

Future Mrs. Spiegel

Kerr started modeling at the age of 13 after she emerged as the winner of the 1997 Australian nationwide model search. She began to gain prominence in 2007 by making history as the first Australian Victoria's Secret model.

After ending her marriage with Bloom in 2013, Kerr will soon become a wife of one of the youngest billionaires in the world. She got engaged to Evan Spiegel in July after dating for a year.

Spiegel is the 26-year-old CEO and co-founder of the photo-sharing app Snapchat. Forbes estimated his net worth at $2.1 billion.
