Having broken up with Israeli model girlfriend, Bar Refaeli, Leonardo DiCaprio is reportedly back with her, following the spotting of the pair holding hands in Hollywood before Christmas 2007. Reports noted that Dicaprio was seen holding the 22-year-old model's hand at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills on December 20.
According to Us Weekly, a source close to the 33-year-old Hollywood leading actor revealed that the couple weren't really off from the relationship. The source said, "They were never really 'off. It was always a distance thing. Leo was making a movie in Morocco [this year], and Bar had her modeling career."
To support the distance reasoning, Refaeli's mother, Zipi, told Us that her daughter's modeling career makes her works all over the world. The source then added again, "It's a struggle to make a relationship like theirs work, but yes, they're together."
The rumor that DiCaprio has ended up his relationship with the model, who is 11 years younger, back in October was fueled after Refaeli was spotted together with Kelly Slater, a surfing world champion, at a club in an entertainment area at the port of Tel Aviv. However, neither DiCaprio nor Refaeli had given out confirmation about the break-up rumor.
