Leonardo DiCaprio, 48, and Irina Shayk, 37, spark age row amid ‘just friends’ status after Cannes outing
CANNES, FRANCE: Leonardo DiCaprio, 48, and supermodel Irina Shayk, 37, were spotted together in Cannes, fueling rumors of a potential romance. The actor, who has been receiving acclaim for his performance in Martin Scorsese's 'Killers Of The Flower Moon', and the Russian supermodel attended Naomi Campbell's birthday bash on Monday, May 22, and were also seen at the premiere of DiCaprio's film.
At 37 years old, Irina is slightly older than DiCaprio's usual companions, as the actor tends to date women 25 and younger. Although they have known each other for a long time and were both present at Coachella this spring too, they are officially labeled as "just friends."

'Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid's post-romance friendship'
Previously, DiCaprio was linked to model Gigi Hadid, but their relationship is said to have fizzled out. However, sources claim that they remain on friendly terms and meet up when 'their busy schedules permit'. "Gigi and Leo still hang out and talk when it works with their timing," the insider said. "They both enjoy each other's company and have fun together when their busy schedules permit. Yolanda and Bella know Gigi is capable of making her own healthy decisions and they’re supportive of her, Gigi’s main priority is her baby girl. Her daughter is always top of mind and at the forefront of everything in her life," the source told Entertainment Tonight.
'It kind of just fizzled!'
Gigi recently ended her six-year relationship with Zayn Malik and has a two-year-old daughter named Khai. Gigi and DiCaprio's dating rumors resurfaced after they were seen together at the same Oscars afterparty. However, their reported romance is said to have fizzled out as Gigi prioritizes motherhood and the two are in different stages of life. "They are at very different places in life. She prioritizes being a mom," the insider had continued at the time, further adding, "It was never that serious anyway. It kind of just fizzled," reported People.
Prior to these events, Gigi and DiCaprio were first linked romantically in September 2022, when they spent time together during New York Fashion Week. Meanwhile, rumors of Leo dating Love Island's Maya were denied by the actor, refuting claims of them being in regular contact and going on dates. "They have both recently come out of long-term relationships so neither of them are rushing into anything — they are having fun and seeing how it goes," a source told The Sun.
