AceShowbiz - Leonardo DiCaprio's rumored flame Eden Polani has bid farewell to Instagram. The 19-year-old model deleted her account on the photo-sharing platform after the "Titanic" leading man denied dating speculations between the two.
Eden's Instagram username was @edenpolanii. The account, which has amassed 230,000 followers, was active until Wednesday morning, February 8. Unfortunately, the page "isn't available" now.
This arrived after sources close to the Oscar-winning actor confirmed to Daily Mail that the pair are not in a relationship. "They were seated next to each other at a music-listening party. There were a number of people at that event," the insiders said.
Meanwhile, a different source told Page Six, "There is zero truth to this. He was seated next to [Eden] at a music party, along with many other people." The informant added, "It's just silly. Leo clearly can't be dating every single person that [he's] in a room with."
The romance rumors emerged after Leo was photographed getting close to Eden at Ebony Riley's release party for her new EP on January 31 in Los Angeles. In some pictures, the Hollywood star could be seen showing off a soft smile next to the model as he appeared to enjoy himself at the packed party.
After photos of Leo and Eden made its way online, some Twitter critics called him out. "Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend is so young her high school experience was interrupted by COVID-19," one person wrote. Someone else commented, "Stop making jokes about Leonardo DiCaprio being a almost 50 dating literal teenagers and start calling him what he is - a predator."
The criticism didn't stop there. More came forward with one writing, "Kate Winslet was 22 when she was nominated for an Oscar for Titanic. Which is 3 years older than Leonardo DiCaprio's current girlfriend." Someone else fumed, "Stop making jokes about Leonardo DiCaprio being a almost 50 dating literal teenagers and start calling him what he is - a predator."
