Rebecca often shares photos of herself in skinny bikinis, but has recently restricted her audience by setting her account to private.

One photo shows how she models a bold pink swimsuit. In another, she poses in a blue bikini with matching G-string bottoms on the beach.

She seems to have a horse's tattoo on her lower back, which may be a reference to her family's love for animals.

In 2016 the Courier Mail reported that Rebecca – who now works as a restaurant manager at her home in Mooloolaba – had broken ties with Australia Zoo.

Around this time her father Frank Muscillo – who is married to Steve Irwin's sister Joy – & # 39; left the house & # 39; after a disagreement with Terri.

Rebecca, along with her mother and brother James, would have said goodbye to the company around the time of Frank & # 39; s departure.

Earlier this week, Joy spoke with Daily Mail Australia outside the remote estate of her father Bob Irwin Snr in Kingaroy in southern Queensland.

She described the family feud, which began after Steve & # 39; s tragic death by a stingray in September 2006, as a & # 39; very sad & # 39; situation.

& # 39; I stay away from that, & # 39; she said. & # 39; It's just very sad … family affairs. & # 39;

Joy, who runs a restaurant with her husband, now leads a quiet life away from the glitter and glamor of her sister-in-law Terri, niece Bindi and cousin Bob Jnr.

After leaving the zoo, Joy said she was bound by a confidentiality agreement that prevented her from talking about what had happened.

Although the agreement has expired, she says it is a & # 39; personal decision & # 39; continues to keep her family dramas & # 39; s private.

It is after Bob Irwin Snr recently spoke to Courier Mail about the family feud that made him alienated from his granddaughter Bindi.

Bob Snr left the Australia Zoo in 2008 after he and Terri Irwin reportedly argued about the direction of the company after Steve's death.

He has not spoken to Terri, Bindi or Bob since.

When Bindi became engaged to her old friend Chandler Powell in July, he revealed that he had not been invited to the wedding and that he had not expected that either.
