Camila Morrone and Leonardo DiCaprio split as he reportedly wanted her to 'stay home' and 'have babies'
MALIBU, CALIFORNIA: A source close to Camila Morrone's family revealed that Leonardo DiCaprio and the model parted ways because he wanted children with her but never planned to marry. The source revealed to The US Sun that Camila, 25, was not prepared to have children because she was focused on her burgeoning acting career.
Camila and Leonardo reportedly split up after five years of dating. The 'Titanic' star began dating the actress in 2017 when she was 20. Sources had revealed earlier that the two were heading in two different directions. Their reps were tight-lipped about the reason for the two splitting.
According to the insider, Camila believed that Leonardo, a 47-year-old Oscar winner, had not done enough to support her with his connections in Hollywood. Sorces said, "It was Camila who broke it off with Leo because he wanted her to be home having babies and she wants to have a career. He has got to that point in his life where he wants to have a family." Sources added, "But Camila has been working towards her dreams since she was 16, when she was in James Franco’s movie Bukowski. Leo didn't do anything for her career, she’s more upset about that than anything else."
Camila discussed the drawbacks of being the center of attention due to her well-known relationship with Leonardo in an interview with WSJ magazine in 2020. She stated, "It’s a little bit of a bummer because you’re really trying to do good work and be nice and be a good person, and in the meantime, people wish negative things upon you. It would never take away the joy of the craft that I get to do." She added, "I’m really lucky in the sense that I have the privilege of being able to pick and choose what I do and only pick projects I really love and feel I can bring something to and I can learn from."
The insider continued that everything that Camila did was on her own, even though she's been with the Hollywood star for four years. The source said, "He could have introduced her to a bunch of people and put her in his movies. She and her mother want to make it big in Hollywood. That’s always been her mother’s focus. Leo wanted her to have babies and stay home but if you want somebody to do that you’ve got to make a commitment. What commitment is he making?"
the insider added that the actor didn't introduce Camila to anyone because he doesn't want her to be famous and have a career. "Leo wants to have a family but still play around. A man who really wants to be committed would put a ring on it," the source concludes.
