Leonardo DiCaprio Returns Oscar Gift to Federal Agents Amid Fraud Investigation

The leading man of 'The Wolf of Wall Street' was given Marlon Brando's 1954 Best Actor trophy by Malaysian financier Jho Low, who is wanted for alleged money laundering.

AceShowbiz - Leonardo DiCaprio has been forced to hand Marlon Brando's 1954 Best Actor Oscar over to federal agents in the U.S. as part of a major fraud investigation.

The actor, who also has a Best Actor Oscar of his own for his role in 2015 film "The Revenant", was given Brando's On the Waterfront gong as a gift by Malaysian financier Jho Low, who bought the trophy for $600,000 (£479,000) at auction.

Leonardo was ordered to hand over all gifts he has received from Low, who also financed the actor's "The Wolf of Wall Street" movie - and now the Oscar statuette is in the hands of federal officials, as is a painting by Pablo Picasso, which was another present from the businessman, according to Page Six.
