Is Leonardo DiCaprio "swooping in" on Lady Gaga now that her supposed romance with Bradley Cooper has ended? That's the absurd storyline in one of the tabloids, but not a single aspect of it is true. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.
On November 22, DiCaprio and Gaga played poker together at the singer's Born This Way Foundation gala in Los Angeles. Here's the headline Woman's Day is using to describe the pair's get-together at a charity event: "Lady Gaga & Leo's Secret Date Night!" An alleged insider tells the outlet, "Everyone was shocked to see Leo there, especially since he seemed to be there as Gaga's date." The actor didn't attend the charity gala as anyone's "date."
The questionable source continues, "Leo's love of poker is well known, so that would be an easy way for him to hide the fact he was actually at the party with her." The supposed insider then drags Gaga's A Star Is Born co-star into the phony scenario, adding, "If I were [DiCaprio], I wouldn't want it getting out there either, given that he's supposed to be close buddies with her ex." As Gossip Cop has stressed countless times, however, Gaga and Cooper have never been romantically involved.
The unknown tipster wrongly maintains that Gaga and Cooper ended their "romance" earlier this year, and then acknowledges that DiCaprio has been dating model Camila Morrone for nearly two years, but baselessly claims they "haven't been looking happy lately." The seemingly phony source adds, "This is the longest Leo's struck with one girl in as long as anyone can remember. If he's moving on, that's no surprise - the real shock would be if it's with Gaga, who's fantastic but certainly not his type... well, age range."
The tabloid's entire report is fiction. For starters, DiCaprio and Morrone were spotted on a date night in West Hollywood several days after Gaga's charity event. That was just one of countless date nights the couple has enjoyed in recent weeks. DiCaprio even supported Morrone at her own charity gala last month, where he made a $100,000 donation.
As also noted, Gaga has never dated Cooper, so the idea that DiCaprio has "swooped in" on his friend's ex is bogus. Still, Gossip Cop ran the tabloid's scenario by DiCaprio's spokesperson, who confirms it's all total nonsense. The actor's relationship with Morrone is still going strong. He simply attended Gaga's charity event, and that's where the story begins and ends.
This isn't the first time Woman's Day has attempted to create a phony love triangle between DiCaprio, his girlfriend and another famous woman. Back in April, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for falsely claiming Morrone was accusing DiCaprio of having an affair with Margot Robbie, his co-star in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Around this time last year, the tabloid made up a story about DiCaprio developing a romance with Jennifer Aniston. That story was concocted simply because the Friends star attended the actor's 44th birthday party. This latest attempt at linking the actor to any famous woman who crosses his path is more nonsense.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
