A tabloid report claiming Leonardo DiCaprio is setting Brad Pitt up with models is completely untrue. Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus premise. DiCaprio isn't involving himself in his co-star's personal life.
An article in the latest issue of Star claims that during his downtime from filming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, DiCaprio has been trying to find a supermodel for Pitt to date. An alleged insider tells the magazine, "Leo offered to set Brad up with models, and even gave him permission to hook up with any his exes like Nina Agdal, Kelly Rohrbach, Toni Garrn and Erin Heatherton!"
The questionable source goes on to say that DiCaprio is also asking girlfriend Camila Morrone to introduce Pitt to a few of her friends, including Kendall Jenner and Sara Sampaio. "He told Brad he needs to embrace his hot dad status and get back out there," adds the seemingly phony tipster.
This premise is entirely fabricated. "Entertainment Tonight," a much more reliable celebrity news outlet than Star, recently reported that Pitt has "taken a step away from dating because of the importance of his children." The trusted entertainment news show further noted that "all [Pitt] wants to do is focus on family" and "doesn't want to rock the boat" by dating amid his custody battle with Angelina Jolie.
As has been widely reported, Pitt and Jolie's legal war over their six kids is very acrimonious at the moment. It's safe to say that DiCaprio isn't pushing his co-star to start running around with young models as he fights for shared custody of his children. Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Pitt, who tells us on the condition of anonymity that the magazine's article is completely "false."
Meanwhile, DiCaprio has been spending much of the summer traveling when he hasn't been busy working on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Over the past few weeks, the actor has been spotted vacationing in Europe with Morrone. On more than one occasion, DiCaprio has been photographed playing volleyball in Los Angeles with famous friends such as Ansel Elgort and Scott Eastwood.
However, it doesn't appear he's done much socializing with Pitt off the set of their film. Once again, Pitt has a lot on his plate at the moment. The outlet's article is illogical and seems to have been concocted simply because DiCaprio has a long history of dating models.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
