Leonardo DiCaprio wants to 'settle down' with 27-year-old Gigi Hadid as he's done with 'under 25' memes
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Leonardo DiCaprio seems to be dwelling over the mockery of him only dating women under the age of 25. The Hollywood actor, who ended his relationship with Camila Morrone, 25, just last month "really hates the narrative of him only dating women under 25."
DiCaprio has reportedly begun dating Gigi Hadid, a single mother who obviously doesn't fall under the 25-year-old category, revealed an insider to The Sun. The supermodel and entrepreneur Hadid, who is 27 years old and 2 years older than the ladies the 47-year-old actor has previously dated, is now the center of his attention according to speculations.
MEAWW had previously stated that the Oscar-winning actor was "getting to know" supermodel Gigi Hadid, but photos of the pair cuddling up at a New York City event added fresh clarity to the relationship's status. According to a source who talked to The Sun, DiCaprio "wants to keep it under wraps."
The source stated, "Leo has been telling friends he doesn't want he and Gigi to be a spectacle - they have been so secretive throughout seeing each other. He wants to take it slow. They are both high profile doesn’t want to put pressure her."
"They have been dating since Capri where they were on a yacht together alone," the source added. "He knew he wanted to meet someone who he has similar views on life (feeling that for her age, Gigi is mature)." The insider continued by declaring that 'The Don't Look Up' star thinks the model, who shares a two-year-old daughter named Khai with ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik, is a "real catch," and he is eager to see where the relationship might go.
"He's been saying he actually feels he is ready to do a George Clooney and meet the right person - now feels he can," the source said. "He has been telling his friends he really hates the narrative of him only dating women under 25 - it upsets him - Gigi is 27 with a child. There is definitely chemistry, they adore each other, but he has no plans to make their relationship public yet."
The Daily Mail published pictures of the couple 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. In October 2021, Hadid and ex-partner Zayn Malik broke up over the singer's alleged altercation with Yolanda Hadid, the mother of the model.
DiCaprio and Morrone called it quits on August 31 after dating for approximately four years. The American model and 'Titanic' star initially became romantically involved on a trip to Aspen, Colorado, at the beginning of 2018. Since then, they appeared to be inseparable, but after years of extensive travel, they were unable to make things work since "distance played a factor," and inevitably, their relationship "ran it's course," according to reports by E! News.
