BLOOM'S ex Miranda Kerr has been asked to give up millions of pounds worth of jewellery as part of a U.S. corruption case.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr surrendered more than $8 million in jewelry Friday, including an 8.88 carat diamond pendant worth almost $4 million, as part of an investigation involving her ex-boyfriend, Malaysian financier Jho Low.

The department is seeking to seize more assets, including a luxury yacht, owned by financier Jho Low and his gift of some of the jewellery to Kerr in 2014.

"Miranda Kerr cooperated fully and pledged to turn over the gifts of jewellery to the government", he said.

Miranda Kerr just forked over millions of dollars worth of jewelry to the USA government because someone may have bought them for her with stolen overseas money.

Once Kerr split from her then-husband Orlando Bloom, in 2014, she became the object of Low's affection, too.

DiCaprio has already turned over a Picasso painting worth $3.2 million that he received as a birthday gift from Low as well as a Jean-Michel Basquiat collage valued at $9 million, both of which were listed in the June court filing.

The scandal has rocked the Malaysian governing class, exposing Prime Minister Najib Razak to allegations of corruption, which he has denied.

Three days later, the money was moved to a BSI account held by Jho Low's father, Low Hock Peng. The film was produced by Red Granite, a firm founded by Najib's stepson, Riza Aziz.
