Designer Roberto Cavalli Facing Jail

Leading fashion designer Roberto Cavalli could face jail if he is found guilty of tax fraud charges.

Cavalli, who is close friends with Madonna and Victoria Beckham, is being prosecuted after writing off $2.7 million in improvements to his Florence, Italy, villa as business expenses.

The 65-year-old claims he uses the luxurious property for photo shoots – but prosecutors insist the building work, which includes a helicopter landing pad and hangar, exceeds normal business expenses.
