Aussie supermodel Miranda Kerr was issued a warning by police after she breached her 14-day quarantine in October 2020, according to reports.

The Aussie beauty was given an exemption to isolate on her $7.5 million Hunter Valley property rather than complete the mandatory hotel quarantine most Aussies are subject to.

She was later granted a further exemption to leave the property by authorities but reportedly failed to complete a mandatory notification process.

“Under the terms of an approved NSW Health exemption, she was allowed to leave the property for a specific purpose,” Police confirmed to The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.

The purpose was reportedly to visit a relative who was ill in palliative care in Northern NSW, however, the model’s failure to correctly complete the notification process put her in breach of the exemption.

Police reportedly showed up to the property after being notified by health authorities that Miranda was not at home, though the broken rule was believed to have been a simple misunderstanding on the model’s part.

Nevertheless, Kerr reportedly received an official warning from NSW Police over the incident.

The 37-year-old was completing the quarantine process with husband Evan Spiegel, the billionaire founder of Snapchat. The pair wed in 2017.

The innocent enough misstep from the model is not the first time a celebrity has come under fire for breaching the rules we are all forced to keep, though others were caught in far more compromising situations.

In the UK, pop star Rita Ora was forced to apologise after throwing an "inexcusable" 30th birthday party with 30 or so friends during London's second lockdown, but it seems the breaking of Covid restrictions didn't stop there.

In December, the singer admitted she flew to Egypt by private jet and failed to quarantine for 14 days upon her arrival back in the UK.
