Recently, the Internet has been asking the question: Are Gigi Hadid and Leonardo DiCaprio dating? When you consider that Gigi is a young, beautiful supermodel in her 20s and Leo’s favorite type of girl to date, we can’t say we’re too surprised. However, many have also found that the relationship has had interesting times, especially since DiCaprio was recently pulled for not dating women over the age of 25. Is this a cleverly crafted PR stunt, or are Gigi and Leo really a thing? To determine this, we need to rewind a bit.
In August 2022, Leo DiCaprio broke up with his girlfriend of four years, Camila Morone. A few months later in October 2021, she broke up with her baby daddy and boyfriend Zayn Malik, and it wasn’t until she started seeing Leo that romance rumors began to circulate. What started as unsubstantiated rumors online, an anonymous source told “E! News that Leo asked about Gigi’s mutual friends and wanted to get to know her.
While Leo is clearly interested in this young and talented IT girl, Gigi is apparently “just having fun with it” and “not interested in anything serious”. I mean, if it was Titanic-era Leo, we’d get it, but Gigi was past her prime when she was still in her teens.
Gigi’s father, real estate tycoon Mohamed Hadid, also spoke about the relationship to the “Daily Mail,” saying he met DiCaprio years ago in St. Tropez and was a “very nice man.” Although he only has positive things to say about Leo, Mohammed is unsure about these rumors as he has not directly confronted the couple.
