Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli and her boyfriend, popular American actor Leonardo DiCaprio, arrived in Israel for a vacation under heavy security.

The couple, who arrived Sunday, were accompanied by DiCaprio’s mother, Irmelin, and actor Kevin Connolly of “Entourage.” They arrived in Israel after visiting Jordan and Egypt as part of celebrations for DiCaprio’s 36th birthday, according to reports.

The group is staying at a Tel Aviv hotel, though Refaeli’s parents live in nearby Hod Hasharon. They plan to visit the Western Wall, nightclubs, the Dead Sea and other tourist destinations, according to reports.

During a visit 3 1/2 years ago, the couple were constantly mobbed with paparazzi, culminating in a brawl between DiCaprio’s bodyguards and photographers during a visit to the Western Wall. DiCaprio left the country early and insisted he would never visit Israel again.

DiCaprio’s mother and Connolly have never visited Israel before.
