Various news portals (including the Daily Mail, Page Six and E! News) are reporting on the latest love affair in Hollywood: Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid have allegedly been spotted on various dates. After his break-up with model Camila Morrone a few months ago (shortly after her 25th birthday, just saying), Leonardo DiCaprio seems to be mainly out with friends and family – and Gigi Hadid is one of these friends. In itself, this wouldn't be big news – if it weren't for the fact that Leo, who is 47 himself, has never dated a woman over 25. Is Gigi Hadid, at 27, really the first woman to break the actor's magic barrier? Here's what we know about the rumours – and we don't.
Is Leonardo DiCaprio dating Gigi Hadid? This is what we know
Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid are officially single at the moment, there has been neither confirmation nor denial about their alleged liaison. Leonardo DiCaprio is just coming out of a four-year relationship with model Camila Morrone and Gigi Hadid split from singer and father of her child Zayn Malik in autumn 2021, with whom she had an on-off relationship for five years. We also know that they both have overlapping circles of friends: Leo and Gigi both have a house near NoHo, (North of Houston Street in Manhattan, NYC) – and know the same people there.
On Saturday, 10 September 2022, two of these friends, Richie Akiva and Darren Dzienciol, had an after-show party in NoHo at Casa Cipriani in the context of New York Fashion Week, where Leo and Gigi also showed up. We know this because the DailyMail published exclusive photos showing the two of them. They are seen talking to each other, heads close together – it was probably noisy at the party – and at one point Leo puts his hand on her shoulder and she appears to put her hand on his thigh. Industry magazine Us Weekly suggests the pair have been friends for some time, as they were seen together at an after-show party with Gigi's sister Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner back in 2019.
Is Leonardo DiCaprio dating Gigi Hadid? We don't know
Anything beyond that (mutual friend:ing, partying together) is just speculation, coming mainly from anonymous sources at various American gossip magazines. There are several anonymous sources, e.g. from "Page Six", who claim that the two are dating but taking it slow. The said source explained that the two have been on a few dates together, but are also seeing other people and everything is not "exclusive" yet.
Another anonymous source told "E! News" that Leonardo DiCaprio already had a crush on Gigi Hadid, but that he probably prefers to be single at the moment. This source also told "E! News" that Gigi thinks Leo is a "pretty cool guy" but can't imagine a steady relationship right now. Leo, on the other hand, is completely smitten with Gigi and is probably trying to "seduce" her.
If Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid are indeed dating, it would be a big move for the actor. Gigi is 27 years old and a mother of a two-year-old daughter. In the past, that would probably be a criterion for exclusion for the 47-year-old actor, because, as the internet always likes to point out, Leo basically dated women who were under 25 – and none of them were already mothers. After Leo and Camila Morrone broke up after four years of dating, the rumour mill naturally bubbled – and the memes were not long in coming.
Maybe the rumours about his alleged liaison with Gigi Hadid will come in handy for Leonardo DiCaprio, so that the jokes about the age of his girlfriends will finally stop. In any case, it remains exciting. Our prediction: There's still something to come!
