Leonardo DiCaprio is not “hooking up” with 20-year-old Argentinian model Camila Morrone, despite a slew of inaccurate reports circulating in the news. Gossip Cop is exclusively assured the two are just family friends.

The false dating rumors were started this week by Us Weekly and subsequently picked up by several other outlets, including Cosmopolitan, Maxim and the Daily Dot. Shortly after DiCaprio and Morrone were spotted shopping together at Barneys in Los Angeles last weekend, the tabloid incorrectly reported that they’re a couple. Additional publication’s that spread the story were quick to label the model as the actor’s “new girlfriend.”

Gossip Cop, however, is exclusively told by a mutual pal of ours and DiCaprio that he and Morrone are just family friends who’ve known each other for a long time. There’s simply nothing romantic between the two. Also, the actor’s friend Al Pacino is dating the model’s mother, Lucila Sola, which is one of the ways the pair got introduced. Regardless, we’re told the “hooking up” angle is simply “not true.”

Morrone, who’s signed with IMG, recently began making a name for herself in the modeling world, and already has more than 1 million Instagram followers. She’s appeared in campaigns for Victoria’s Secret PINK line and has been featured in publications such as Vogue and Sports Illustrated. The 20-year-old is also embarking on an acting career, with her upcoming film Never Goin’ Back headed to next year’s Sundance Film Festival. And while it’s no secret that DiCaprio has a long history of dating models, he hasn’t added Morrone to the list.

Of course, DiCaprio is often wrongly linked to famous women who are only friends, so we’re not surprised by the bogus speculation. Gossip Cop has previously debunked romance rumors surrounding Kate Winslet, Rihanna and other female pals. The actor’s relationship with Morrone is equally platonic.
