Recent reports from Hollywood suggest that the newly single superstar Leonardo DiCaprio is ready to mingle. Often trolled for dating women until they are 25, this time the ‘Titanic’ actor is seemingly making an exception. According to reports, Leo has been captured cosying up to supermodel Gigi Hadid, which has thrown Hollywood fans into fits. Gigi is 27 years old and 2 years older than Leo’s cut-off point. Many believed it was a rumour at first until reputed news agencies started to report it as official.
Leonardo DiCaprio Faces More Trolling
The rumours about Leo and Gigi have been going around for weeks as paparazzi spotted the pair at a New York Fashion Week after-party on September 10. The photos “obtained” by the media showed the 47-year-old Oscar winner whispering something in Gigi’s ears. Social media users shared their expressions in the form of jokes and memes. Leo and Gigi getting together was probably the most random thing they ever came across. Some even opined that it must be the PR campaign for the ‘Revenant’ actor to make him be seen with someone over 25. Fans felt bad for Gigi and trolled her for leaving (a younger) Zayn Malik for 40+ Leo. However, if it’s really a PR relationship, it can also help put Gigi back on the map since fading out for a model is not lucrative.
Ageist Memes Again
There are countless Hollywood couples with astonishing age gaps, but this thing between Leo and Gigi is highly exaggerated on social media. It led to more memes on Leonardo with the context that he was unaware of Gigi’s age. Some said he may have confused her with her sister Bella Hadid, who was 25 years old. Here is one of the memes about Leo’s reaction after finding out Gigi’s age.
The media reports have claimed that Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid have been taking things slowly and are not a couple yet. Another added that Leo has been “definitely pursuing” Gigi, but the relationship cannot be called “dating”. The pair is reportedly hanging out in a group and not alone.
Leo broke up with Camila Morrone in August 2022 after 4 years of relationship. He met Morrone when she was 21 and left her at 25, which sparked the ageist memes on the internet. On the other hand, Gigi broke up with singer Zayn Malik in October 2021 after allegations that he hit her mother, Yolanda Hadid. She shares a daughter, Khai, with Malik.
If dating rumours are true, then Gigi would be Leo’s oldest girlfriend and also the first girlfriend ever, who is a mother.
