'Neither one is happy': Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone in dog custody battle after nasty breakup
MALIBU, CALIFORNIA: Camila Morrone and Leonardo DiCaprio formally ended their relationship on August 31, but things have since gotten bumpy. Over the course of the five-year relationship, certain strong commitments were formed, one of which involved their pet dogs, Jack and Jill.
DiCaprio is at odds with his ex Morrone over custody of the Siberian huskies they both adopted as household pets, according to RadarOnline. "Leo's breakup with Camila is a lot more bitter than his many prior galpals and it's because of these dogs that he loves like they're his kids," a source told Radar Online. "Neither will give them up and are trying to arrange some type of co-parenting where she'll have the dogs for a while and then he'll have them. Neither one is happy about it!"
During the quarantine in 2020, DiCaprio, 47, and Morrone, 25, adopted the sibling Huskies. In order to prevent the possibility of separation, the ex-couple also welcomed Sally, the mother of the Huskies. The insider revealed to RadarOnline, "These dogs earned a reputation all their own for being rowdy and getting into everything, but Leo and Camila love to spoil and make a fuss over them. They're very lucky dogs — even if the custody situation stinks for their human parents!"
DiCaprio talked about the time he jumped into icy water to save the Huskies back in December 2021. In an interview with his 'Don't Look Up' costars for Entertainment Weekly's 'Around the Table' series, DiCaprio stated, "Basically, they both fell in a frozen lake. I didn't understand what you do in a frozen lake."
The actor's co-star Jennifer Lawrence then interjected to assist him in telling the part, stating, "One of the dogs fell in, and he jumped into the frozen lake to save the dog. As soon as he pushed the one dog out of the pond, the other one jumped in." DiCaprio interjected, "Well, the other one started licking the one that was drowning, and then we all were in the frozen lake together."
The Oscar-winning actor said that his canines "did not understand the concept of a frozen lake" due to the fact that they live in California. Adam McKay, who directed the movie, 'Don't Look Up', was also present for the panel discussion and called DiCaprio's dogs "absolute tornadoes," to which Lawrence agreed and referred to them as, "psychotic."
Aside from the dog custody dispute, DiCaprio is looking forward to a romantic relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid. Last week, the two were seen cuddling in New York amid rumors that the 'Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood' actor is "actively pursuing" the 27-year-old catwalk beauty. The Daily Mail published pictures of the two cuddling up in private at a celebrity party in New York City, with DiCaprio placing his hand on her leg. Since then, the pictures have gone viral.
