After being romantically linked for weeks, reports suggest that Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid are “officially dating.”
An unnamed source tells Us Weekly that DiCaprio, 47, has “always had a soft place” for Hadid, 27, and that “he thinks she’s beautiful of course but also a sophisticated and cool character who’s got a really cultured and educated outlook on life.”
An eyewitness revealed that the couple’s relationship has surprised “a lot of them,” but that their mutual acquaintances are “glad to see them together.”
According to the insider, the “Titanic” star is well aware that his numerous fans have noted his preference for dating young models, many of whom are 25 or younger.
Despite the actor’s attempts to downplay it, the person said, “there’s no denying he does have a type, or at least he had till now.” The source was pointing to the fact that Gigi Hadid is older than the actor’s previous lovers. However, “at almost 48, he is mellowing out a lot more and throwing indications to his buddies that he is considerably less interested in that playboy lifestyle,”
It was said earlier this month that DiCaprio was trying to woo Hadid, but the model wasn’t interested in a serious relationship with him.
According to an anonymous source in Us Weekly, “Leo does have his sights set on Gigi, but she hasn’t shown any interest” as of September 7. They’re pals, but she’s not interested in a romantic relationship with him at the moment.
After seeing Hadid for a week, an unnamed source informed E! News that DiCaprio was “enjoying being alone” after his breakup with Camila Morrone.
After four years of dating, Leonardo DiCaprio and 25-year-old actress and model Morrone broke up this past August. A source close to the couple told Us Weekly that the two broke up because they “weren’t having fun anymore” and that “the honeymoon phase was finished and everything faded away.”
The site claims that before the news of their breakup became public, the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” actor had been “attending events and traveling on vacations” without Morrone and instead spent more time with friends like Tobey Maguire and Jamie Foxx.
The two actors, Morrone Broken and DiCaprio were discreet about their relationship. In early 2018, they were romantically linked for the first time during a trip to Aspen, Colorado. Together, they made their red carpet debut as a pair at the 2020 Academy Awards in February.
Hadid, meantime, dated One Direction member Zayn Malik on and off for five years before the two finally broke up in October 2021. Khai, who is 2 years old and has joint custody of the exes, is the couple’s kid.
