It appears Leonardo DiCaprio may be off the market. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star recently sparked romance rumors after he was spotted attending the EP release party for rising R&B artist Ebony Riley with a new lady in hand.
However, the identity of DiCaprio’s mystery woman has many fans up in arms over the apparent new duo’s 29-year age difference.
In a photo obtained by the Daily Mail, the 48-year-old actor is seen enjoying the party alongside Israeli model Eden Polani. It’s unclear how the two met or how long they’ve been spending time with one another.
At just 19 years old, Polani falls in line with the ages of DiCaprio’s previous girlfriends, nearly all of whom have been 25 or younger. The A-list bachelor is notoriously known for dating much younger women, particularly models.
However, a source tells People that the photos of DiCaprio and Polani aren’t that deep, and their seating arrangement was purely out of happenstance.
“Leo and Eden just so happened to have been seated next to each other at the party, and were hanging in the same group… Just because Leo might be talking to or sitting with a girl doesn’t mean he’s dating her,” the source said.
In December, DiCaprio was photographed cozying up with 23-year-old model Victoria Lamas. That same month, her famous father, actor Lorenzo Lamas, revealed to the New York Post that he warned his daughter to “guard your heart” around DiCaprio.
“She’s very smitten,” he told the outlet. “I told her to treat the relationship like a holiday — just enjoy it as much as you can for as long as it lasts. And if it lasts for more than a typical holiday, great. But if not, then just guard your heart, you know? Because she’s very young.”
Prior to Victoria, DiCaprio dated model Camila Morrone for four years. Ironically, the pair split one month after her 25th birthday — again, fueling rumors that DiCaprio doesn’t date women over the age of 25.
The only time DiCaprio has seemingly broken his dating rule was in September of last year. He was allegedly hanging out with Gigi Hadid, who, at the time, was 27. Albeit, the two never confirmed whether their speculated coupling was ever anything serious.
Meanwhile, DiCaprio and Polani have yet to confirm the status of their own rumored relationship. It should also be noted that less than 24 hours after the photos became public, Polani has gone radio silent on social media and deleted her Instagram.
