This might be the best gossip of New York Fashion Week Leonardo DiCaprio pursued Gigi Hadid. She, a model, was at New York Fashion Week. He, a fan of models, was there too. They “were discovered,” per Page Six, at his friend’s Richie Akiva‘s party in a loft in SoHo. Last week, in a report by persons, someone anonymously claimed they were “meeting”. And from Page Six, they’ve mostly been “hanging out with groups” and “solo a few times.” On that one NYFW night in particular, celebrating Akiva, “Leo was with his buddies and Gigi was with her model friends and they were all hanging out at a table.” Also: “[DiCaprio] is not someone who goes back and forth between relationships. He doesn’t jump around and hook up. They’re taking it slow.”
The question now has to be, besides what “it” is exactly, how slowly do they take “it”? This Monday, Hadid shared a photo on her Instagram Stories with her daughter Khaisecond birthday, tagging her co-parent, Zain Malik. “Our angel girl turned 2 today,” she wrote alongside a photo of the cake. It’s safe to assume DiCaprio wasn’t there, right? He likes to party. He loves yachts and clubs. But a toddler’s birthday doesn’t seem to be his scene.
And therein lies the catch. Listen, I’ll say it. The timing of these anonymously sourced placements is strange. The news of DiCaprio’s young loves was never a big secret, and people have always talked about it, but it finally reached an inevitable tenor following his split Camila Morrone. Even kenan thompson, a respected man in showbiz, made a joke about it at the Emmys, an awards show DiCaprio didn’t attend, but a lot of people in the audience must know the guy (“zendaya I just turned 26 last week – happy birthday,” the joke read. “Twenty-six is a weird age in Hollywood. I mean, you’re young enough to play a high school kid, but you’re too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio.”) That’s right out there in a way that may be new.
It would do him good to switch up the conversation a bit and maybe show that he can step out of his comfort zone. Past performance famously doesn’t predict future results, but just so we’re all on the same page: DiCaprio and his last eight public girlfriends broke up before or around the time they turned 25, according to a chart circulating on Reddit updated after the update became -Morrone separation. The actor is only 20 years older than Hadid and not 23 years older than the last woman he broke up with. Hadid is mom to a two-year-old, which feels like a responsibility DiCaprio has avoided until now. It all seems a little out of his reach.
On the other hand, Hadid is a model that he is known to love.
What to believe I guess until there are photos of them snogging together or holding hands or snogging outright we won’t know for sure. There’s a photo of him looking like he’s saying something in Hadid’s ear at the Akiva party, but we can only feel good about seriously using a couple name if Gigi Hadid is somewhere off the coast of France boards a yacht alongside DiCaprio.
Until then, feel free to keep working on it. GeoDi. LeoGi. LiGi. digi. GiDi. HadiDi. As long as it sounds like a minor character in the Super Mario universe, it will play.
