KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 9 — Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio is not dating 19-year-old French-Israeli model Eden Polani.
A source confirmed with People that the rumours remain just speculation.
“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.
This is following a photo obtained by several media outlets recently showing the 48-year-old star clad in a bomber jacket and a matching cap sitting beside Polani at model Riley Montana’s album launch party last month.
The photo sparked romantic rumours between the two of them which resulted in the Titanic star being heavily criticised online for dating a woman half his age.
So you're telling me Leonardo DiCaprio and his girlfriend have a bigger age gap than the actors who play Joel & Ellie on The Last of Us? pic.twitter.com/B11ajt2p1Q

This is not the first time DiCaprio has made headlines for dating women much younger than him.
According to The Independent, DiCaprio has a habit of dating women in their early 20s for a short period of time before breaking things off once they turn 25.
Following his breakup with girlfriend of four years, Camillia Morrone, 25, DiCaprio was last linked to actress 23-year-old Victoria Lamas, the daughter of legendary actor Lorenzo Lamas.
However, Lamas’ father confirmed to The New York Post that his daughter liked DiCaprio but there were nothing serious going on between them.
He was also previously seen getting close to 27-year-old Gigi Hadid but it was widely reported that the supermodel is not interested in a romantic relationship with the Inception actor.
