Not long after 47-year-old Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio and 25-year-old Camila Morrone’s break up in August, sources have confirmed that the actor has set his sights on pursuing 27-year-old Gigi Hadid.

Multiple sources support the rumors about a blooming relationship between the 27-year-old Hadid and the 47-year-old Oscar winner.
New Love Interest In Gigi Hadid?
Sources close to the couple spoke with People, telling the outlet that DiCaprio is getting to know the model after dating Morrone for four years.
One source claimed that the pair are not dating yet, saying “They are getting to know each other.” Another insider insisted the Oscar winner is “definitely pursuing Gigi.”

Another source confirmed that the potential couple is not dating but have “been seen hanging out with groups of people. It’s only been a few weeks since the split” between Morrone and DiCaprio. “Since then, he’s been hanging out with friends and family,” confirms the source.
“I met Mr. DiCaprio in St. Tropez four or five years ago and he is a very nice man,” he said. “I liked him.”
“They are friends – they have known each other for some time. I have not spoken to my daughter about Mr. DiCaprio. I don’t think they are dating – I believe they are just good friends. But I really don’t know,” Mohamed added.
“I don’t comment on my daughter’s personal relationships,” he emphasized. “I have no say in who she is dating.”

A source close to Morrone told People that “Camila is doing fine. She has a big group of friends that care about her. She is moving on with her life. She is not in contact with Leo.”
According to insiders, the couple broke up because of the busy schedules that saw them traveling a lot, forcing the pair to reevaluate their relationship.
Morrone Comments On The Public’s Fascination with The Age Gap
Although the couple was notoriously private during their four-year relationship, Morrone did comment on the 23-year age gap between her and DiCaprio.
The actress told The Los Angeles Times in 2019, “There are so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps. I think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”

However, she did admit that she “probably would be curious about it too.” The actress gained a name in the entertainment industry separate from her relationship with DiCaprio when she starred in the 2019 American drama film Mickey and the Bear.
Thanks to the movie, she began gaining an identity outside of her relationship with DiCaprio, which she commented on in the interview.
“I think more and more now that people are seeing the film, I’m slowly getting an identity outside of that,” she said.
“Which is frustrating because I feel like there should always be an identity besides who you’re dating. I understand the association, but I’m confident that will continue to slip away and be less of a conversation.”
DiCaprio Tends To Date Women Under the Age of 25
Although Leonardo DiCaprio is aging like fine wine, all his public relationships have been with women under 25. For example, Morrone is the same age as the movie that made DiCaprio a household name, Titanic.

The 23-year age gap between the pair was remarked on by a Reddit user, TrustLittleBrother, who created a graph to chart the ages of DiCaprio’s love interests. The chart shows that the star has never dated a woman older than 25.
It charts the star’s relationships over 20 years. Seems Morrone, who has just turned 25, reached the cut-off age around the time of their break up.
However, DiCaprio may be breaking the trend with new love interest Gigi Hadid, who is two years older than the general “cut-off age” of 27.
