The on/off couple has been dogged by marriage rumors since it started dating in 2005. The stars split briefly in 2009 but reunited months later.

On Monday, February 15, German newspaper Bild sparked fresh speculation the pair was set to exchange vows after publishing photos of Refaeli wearing a gold band on her ring finger. DiCaprio's close pals shot down the rumors, calling the claims "not true", and the "Titanic" star admits he isn't looking to marry until his acting career dries up.

February 18, 2010 03:20:25 GMT


Singer Leona Lewis has branded bosses of Britain's biggest department store Harrods "backwards" - for refusing to ban fur from their shelves. The "Bleeding Love" hitmaker turned down a $1.6 million offer to launch the London store's summer sale in 2008 over its policy on stocking animal products.

And she's still seething that the company's bosses have not taken action to remove animal pelts from shelves, despite her public snub. Vegetarian Lewis tells Britain's Smooth Radio West Midlands, "Yeah they did offer me money to open the sale but I said no because they stock fur."
