AceShowbiz - Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid are reportedly "getting to know each other" less than a month after the "Titanic" star called it quits with Camila Morrone. Upon learning of the romance rumors, fans are convinced that the actor won't date the model.
On Monday, September 12, multiple sources told PEOPLE that the 47-year-old actor and the 27-year-old supermodel have been spending time "getting to know each other" in New York City. While one insider pointed out to the outlet that the two are "not dating" yet, another said the "Don't Look Up" star is "definitely pursuing" the mother of Khai.
"They've been seen hanging out with groups of people," a separate insider told the news outlet, stressing that it's "only been a few weeks" since Leo and his most recent ex Camila broke up.
A separate source spilled to Page Six that a few of Leo's close friends, including his BFF art dealer Helly Nahmad, were spotted attending Gigi's clothing line launch party at Le Chalet in L'Avenue at Saks. However, the source was not able to confirm whether "The Wolf of Wall Street" star himself was also there.
Upon noticing that Leo is reportedly "pursuing" Gigi, social media users believed that the two will not date as Leo allegedly tends to date young women under 25. "Doubt it. 27 and a single mom," one person noted, with another adding, "It will be a quickie, she is too old for him." A third quipped, "Aww, how sweet: Leo's first single mother."
Someone else argued, "I don't think they have anything in common, fame and wealth aside. The Hadid girls seem to be very solid women who know where they are going and with a very strong sense of family. Leo doesn't." Another chimed in, "Leonardo doesn't impress as the fatherly type. Hadid has a child. Instant family as a step dad won't fly." A separate person said, "What's wrong with this guy? He will be a lonely old man someday."
Leo, who was caught hanging out with 22-year-old Ukrainian model Maria Beregova amid Camila split reports, allegedly "hooked up" with Gigi "a few times" since his breakup, per Life & Style. It's also said that Zayn Malik's ex is "exactly [Leo's] type."
"They have known each other for several years. They're super attracted to each other," the insider further spilled, before adding, "She is exactly his type: gorgeous, sexy but low-key with a one-of-the-guys attitude."
A separate source doubled down on the claims, telling Us Weekly, "Leo does have his sights set on Gigi, but she hasn't shown an interest. They're friends, but she doesn't want to be romantic with [him] right now."
