Why Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid Are Reportedly Not Over But Not Exclusively Dating Now

Gigi Hadid and Leonardo DiCaprio were romantically linked in the fall of 2022, but they spent their vacations apart. Hadid was in Aspen spending time with her two-year-old daughter Khai, who she shares with ex Zayn Malik. DiCaprio was in St. Barts over the holidays, spending time with a group of friends on a private yacht.

It was also reported that DiCaprio had started dating another model, 23-year-old Victoria Lamas. That doesn’t mean things are over for DiCaprio and Hadid, though a source says Entertainment tonight the couple is determined does not exclusive.

“Leo and Gigi have been enjoying their time together when they are able to see each other, but when they are busy with different commitments they do their own thing and they are not exclusive,” the source said. “They have respect for each other and have always just seen where things go.”

They added that Hadid “feels balanced, happy and is focusing her energy on her career and daughter… Her main priority is her daughter and keeping things positive and relaxed.”

Meanwhile, DiCaprio is “having fun and prioritizing work and spending time with friends.”

In mid-December, the 48-year-old actor was photographed leaving The Birds Streets Club in Los Angeles with a bunch of these friends, including Lamas, and they got into a car together. At the time, a source said there was nothing wrong.

“There’s no truth to it this time,” an insider told E! News. “They sat (not next to each other) at a large group dinner.”

They added that there were “a number of other people in the car” and it was not a private trip for a new couple. But about a week later on December 28, Victoria’s father, actor Lorenzo Lamas, apparently confirmed that the couple was actually dating in an interview with New York Post.

“She’s very taken,” he said. “I told her to treat the relationship like a vacation — just enjoy it as much as possible while it lasts. And if it lasts longer than a typical vacation, great. But if not, just watch your heart , you know? Because she’s very young.”

He walked those comments back by saying that they are actually “just friends”.

“They’re friends, they’re not in a serious relationship,” he explained. “And I just want it to be clear … they’re not dating.”

He continued: “They’re just friends, but of course she’s smitten. And that was my cautionary tale to her: Just take one step at a time. But right now, they’re not an item. They’re not mutually exclusive.”

It seems that none are exclusive at this point.
